I'm starting to plan a trip for next year, part of this is encouraging a few mates who aren't strict petrolheads.

Can anyone either point me towards a website that summarises some of the entertainment at Le Mans 24, or list a few of the things going on.

E.g. bars, food, any stages with music/concerts, fairgrounds??

Cheers guys, I know PH will have the answer!!

also try youtube with a search like 'le mans mad friday'

there you will also find two longer films produced by Audi and they are epic.... from Jason Statham's " It always rains at Le Mans" to the credits you should be spellbound... and nailbiting even though the results are well known

The 2008 race: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFwoxM1MiBw

The 2011 race: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=27F26UA1i6M&fea...

and a couple of private ones...

But if they are not petrolheads, Silverstone has nothing of the atmosphere of Le Mans. If you are looking to sell the atmosphere, Silverstone may do more harm than good!

I've done videos from the past few years which should give a pretty decent overview of the type of thing to expect at Le Mans both on and off the track.

You can find them all here:
