Please remember that this event is only available to VinMog members. If you or any passenger over 18 years of age wish to come and are not yet members of VinMog for 2016, you should each complete a membership application form and pay the membership fee of 10 € / £7.50 per person. The membership fee is in addition to the cost of the event.

You should submit the membership application form on-line and then pay your membership fee together with the deposit for the event.

  • Full event tickets, including paddock passes and grandstand seats
    • Grandstand seats will be in either Dunlop or Panorama stands.
  • Circuit parking for Morgans or other classic cars
    • see the list of the « Happy Few » marques that LMC allow to park within the circuit
  • Various goodies, including use of the VinMog marquee & with a ‘cheese party’ on the Sunday
  • The prices we charge also include a levy towards the cost of sponsoring Morgan race teams
    • of which, this year, there are expected to be 10
  • We have also arranged with the Hotel Arbor, by the second chicane on the Mulsanne Straight, that any of our group (identified by the VinMog sticker on their car windscreen and your individual membership badges) may use their car park to obtain a different view of the racing.
    • There will be no charge for this, though it would be nice if you purchased a coffee or drink in their bar.

The Hotels that we are using are:

Hotel Arbor/Auberge du Mulsanne.

One of the most popular hotels for events using the ‘full’ Le Mans circuit, the Hotel Arbor is situated right by the second chicane on the Mulsanne Straight.  Guests simply have to walk a few metres from the hotel to watch the action – in fact there are a few bedrooms with a limited view of the track!

We include meals every night here as there’s no need to keep Saturday clear for those wishing to stay late at the circuit to watch the night racing.  The first three evening meals are four course, with a gala meal on Sunday night.

The price here is 1940 € / £1474 for two people, in one car and sharing a twin or double bedded room.

Sorry - this hotel is now full – though we will take names for the waiting list

Hotel St Louis – la Suze sur Sarthe

Hotel St Louis has been used by Morganeers for every Classic since the first in 2002.  The hotelier, Pascal Heron, is a keen motor enthusiast, when we started going there he had a very nice TR3, but then changed it for a Porsche.  However he has now seen the light and in 2015 purchased a 2009 Plus Four.

La Suze is a very typical French town just fifteen minutes from the circuit.

The price here is 1466 € /£1118 for two people, in one car and sharing a twin or double bedded room, with three evening meals. (Please note that the room price may vary according to the room allocated).

Auberge du Port des Roches – near Luché-Pringe

Auberge du Port des Roches is a small and very popular hotel in a quiet position alongside the River Loir (a tributary of the larger River Loire).  Many have described it as a superb restaurant with accommodation – there are just twelve rooms which are clean and tidy, but not huge.  This hotel is about forty minutes from the circuit.

The price here is 1400 € / £1068 for two people, in one car and sharing a twin or double bedded room, with three evening meals.

Hotel du Commerce - Vaiges

The Hotel du Commerce is a very nice 3*** hotel that has been in the same family for five generations.  Vaiges is a small town near the Sarthe/Mayenne border and just under one hour drive from the circuit.  The hotel has its own large car park and a very attractive garden and swimming pool.  For those wishing to combine some sightseeing with motor racing it is near to some major tourist attractions.

The chef, Samuel Oger, has recently been awarded the title Maître Restaurateur – and when you eat in the restaurant you will know why! This is the du Commerce Menu for LMC 2016.

The price here is 1606 € / £1222 for two people, in one car and sharing a twin or double bedded room, with three evening meals.


Our camping offer comes with everything included as for our hotel arrangements, except the hotel rooms and meals.

These will be priced at 570 € / £442 for two people in one car and having one camping pitch.

Price Change

We regret that we have been obliged, most reluctantly, to increase the £ prices in
view of the recent significant fall in the value of the £ against the €. We trust that
all our members, and prospective members will understand this. The prices on these pages reflect the increase.

Channel Crossings

VinMog has obtained contracts offering special fares with both Brittany Ferries and P&O Ferries, so is able to offer members living in the UK packages including event tickets, accommodation and Channel crossing at an inclusive price – contact us for information.

Event tickets only

For those members with their own accommodation arranged we are able to supply tickets with the event facilities that are included in our hotel and camping arrangements – that is: entry ticket(s), paddock pass(es), grandstand seat(s), circuit parking, use of the VinMog marquee and Sunday cheese party, plus a small levy towards the Morgan race teams sponsorship.
