Hi everyone,
Just a message to give you some info about the event this year in Le Mans the day before the race.
The Classic British Welcome festival is FREE as usual and our theme this year is Marcos . .
We celebrate 50 years since the first factory car (Mini Marcos) raced at Le Mans in 1967.
There will be around 70-80 Marcos cars of ALL models and a few Le Mans race cars of course!
We aim to be operating a FREE Park & Ride this year for the first time to try to reduce the traffic getting into the site and I will update you on it's location nearer the time.
We have a 33 member British Military band on site also, and our VIP guests will be quadriplegic Le Mans driver from 2016, Frederick Sausset and his fellow drivers Christophe Tinseau and J-B Bouvet from Team SRT41 . . We will also have 3 other Marcos Le Mans Drivers as guests.
Everyone welcome and FREE entry and Parking on site for all makes of Classic cars and Sports cars.
Bring your car and be part of the 1,000 cars that normally make the event . .. without your cars, we have no event !
Regards
Dave Williams, Vice President

The GBW is an integral part of the weekend.

Looking forward to it, as usual.

The stories of traffic chaos is what has kept me away from CBW since I started going to LM a couple of years ago.

However, I've heard great things about the show itself and would love to see it - a Park n Ride would be just brilliant

There was a new one way route for exit last year, much better than before. Hope it will be the same for 2017.
