This June, you are invited to join a select few guests of Bentley at the Iconic 24 hours Le Mans for an extraordinary racing weekend.
You will drive to the race in your own unique Bentley, alongside the original 4.5 Litre Bentley 'Blower' No.1 driven by Sir Tim Birkin at Le Mans in 1930, and 7 other exemplary Bentley vehicles on this once in a lifetime trip, culminating with an exhilarating weekend at the legendary endurance race.
Our journey will begin at Kent's stunning Leeds Castle, where you can enjoy a rare opportunity to stay overnight, dining in the Castle's exquisite staterooms - regarded as the most beautiful in Britain.
Following Breakfast at the Castle, we will leave for France, driving in the slipstream of the beautiful Bentley 'Blower'. After crossing the channel via the Eurotunnel, we will stop off in the idyllic French countryside, having lunch in the historic town of Roeun, on the banks of Seine. The afternoon will be spent driving to our home for the following three days - Chateau La Chevalerie. This 14th century building being a perfect example of historic French architecture.
The third day is an opportunity to experience Le mans for yourself,
visiting parts of the route synonymous with Bentley racing including the
villages of Mulsanne and Arnage. Lunch will then be taken en route to
the Le Mans Racing Museum. Basking in the history of the race, before a
private tour of the pit lane and a walking inspection of the track,
ending the day dining with 5-time Le Mans winner Derek Bell.
On Saturday morning , we will head to the circuit as the anticipation builds for the start of the race. Refreshments will be on offer all day, the race, and lunch will begin at 3pm. For those looking for a little variety, beauty treatments and VIP tours of the track museum are available on site. A shuttle bus will also be available to you throughout the day, taking you to and from Chateau La Chevalerie.
By Sunday, those who have stayed up all night will realise why it is an endurance race. Breakfast can be enjoyed at either the Bentley Lodge by the circuit or the Chateau. Lunch will also be served at the circuit, along with a champagne celebration as the chequered flag falls. We will then end the day back at the Chateau, for a barbecue in the grounds.Following a leisurely breakfast, you will have the choice to follow the Bentley 'Blower' back to the UK, or travel home at your own pace. Your flexiplus ticket will allow you priority access to the next crossing upon your arrival, so you don't need to worry.
