French Grand Prix
How to get there
If you want to fly, then both Marseille or Toulon are close by. However, if you decide to make a road trip of it, then it would be a very long day to drive from the UK but is easy to do with an intermediate stop.
Where to stay
The circuit is in a rural area, but not far from the coast so you can choose a small coastal town such as Sanary-sur-mer or take a longer drive from Marseille or Toulon. Alternatively, there is camping close to the circuit itself.
What else to do
This depends on where you stay, but spending time close to the Mediterranean in mid summer should never be too much of a hardship.
Transport to the circuit
The circuit is in a rural area with limited roads in and out, resulting in some very long queue both for entry and exit so allow lots and lots of time. Roads are closed and tickets checked a long way from the circuit. If you can run to a Paddock car park pass then you will be able to use a quicker route, but still allow lots of time. Just think Silverstone in the old days!
There are a number of good viewing locations. The chicane along the back straight has open views and is a good spot for out braking and overtaking maneouvres.
There's plenty of food and drink stalls around the circuit although they do get busy and some queueing is inevitable. The merchandising area also has other displays such as french classic cars.
