RACE OVERVIEW"24 Heures du Mans"
The 24 hour endurance race in Le Mans France is by far the most the most incredible sports car event in the world. Nearly all the major car makers in the world have entered and pitted their skills against others with the same idea. Le Mans is set in the French countryside just a couple of hours outside Paris by TGV, France`s 180 mph trains.
There are the teams that sometimes only enter this one race but spend a year designing their spectacular prototypes to win the prestigious twenty-four hour event. Sometimes it is to introduce an iconic brand as Volkswagen did for their new Bentley luxury sports car range a few years ago. It worked so well that Bentley has again become the iconic sports-car brand of the nineteen-twenties and thirties that W O Bentley created, after over fifty years of being a tuned up Rolls Royce.
They come in their thousands from the four corners of the world following their teams with great expectations. Some staying in expensive luxurious Chateau`s while others come with a tent and toothbrush in hand. Many stay up for the twenty four hours, while others helicopter back to their luxury accommodations during the short night. Hotels are hard to find, yet Grand Prix Tours has a mix of options that are reasonably priced and certainly more than comfortable. If you want to stay all night we have a hospitality location where you can stay, or we will take you back to the hotel. Want to check out the other side of the track, no problem we have a van to take you. Helicopter rides around the track...yes, we can organize that.
We stay in the fabulous town of Tours in the Loire Valley, amongst the famed chateau that French royalty built for their excesses, and the vineyards for which the French are so famous. Delightful French cuisine, champagne and wine, a plate of cheese with maybe ten different types and taste, and you have to try the crepes and Grand Marnier at the track. Delicious.
Stay a little longer and visit the Loire Valley, a taste of wine here, a chateau there, a gourmet dinner in Tours in the beautiful historic area. You will not be disappointed. Your hotel is the Oceania Hotel L`Univers, not new, but with lots of character from its 150 year existents of looking after the rich and famous. It has recently been renovated, but has lost none of its historic flair.
