Thanks Stephen, good to know. I'll probably take the TGV from Lyon to Paris to Le Mans.If you decide to come by train from Lyon, get to the main station in le mans. There is a tram service that will take you right to the circuit. Make sure you catch the one that goes to the MMArena, which is right next to the circuit.
Brilliant advice, Ian, thanks. I think my survival is more assured now!Wear comfortable shoes and clothes you will walk miles. Take sunscreen as shade is at a premum and also a hat. I have found it to be cool and damp or dry and baking hot. A backpack with water and a lightweight rain cover is a good idea.
