Spay Campsite is located 5 minutes from Arnage Village or about 5 Miles from the circuit, probably about 20 minutes to get from campsite to red car park; which we use; depending on traffic. It is far enough away to be away and offers a comfortable, quiet, dust-free alternative to the onsite campsites. Many people say the onsite campsites, with the associated drunkenness/noise/dust etc. is part of the Le mans experience. I tend to agree but one years’ experience is plenty!!
Obviously the second week in June it is extremely busy, but for the last 10 years we have camped in the Annexe (overflow) and although it can get a bit noisy on the Friday night we’ve made the top and of the field our own; well, us and a large Dutch party! Come and say hi!
I will add that the site does provide security during race week, we have never heard of any unsavoury incidents yet, and I think the security tend to become donut police trying to keep the lunatics in the annexe under control!
The campsite itself does have a clean facilities block, this is very dated but the bonus of a hot shower after the heat and dust (heres hoping!) of the circuit is very welcome. The annexe has a small toilet block and a few sinks. As always bring your own paper! The campsite is located around a fishing lake and is very pleasant, there is also a larger lake with a beach, a fantastic way to relax with a few beers after the 24 hours on Sunday afternoon/evening.
Spay village itself is well served by a small supermarket, boulangerie, butchers and even a hairdressers should you so desire! Oh, and a couple of friendly bars.
