HANDI-ACCUEIL

Better access for handicapped people thanks to the ADAPT 

Since 2010, the ACO and the ADAPT (Association for the social and professional integration of handicapped people) is taking action to facilitate the access to the circuit and its infrastructures for people suffering from reduced mobility. A team will welcome handicapped people at the north entrance (under a big, visible banner for this purpose) to inform and help them to go to the grandstands and the specially converted areas and how to move around inside the circuit.

The scouts will join this service, which will be provided on Saturday and Sunday.

FREE SHUTTLES

For the comfort of the spectators (on presentation of a general enclosure ticket to the Le Mans 24 Hours) 11 free shuttle lines will circulate to link the strategic points of the circuit (see map).

The shuttle service has been reinforced to enhance spectators’ comfort. 

The shuttles will provide a round-trip service between different points. At the terminus all passengers must leave the shuttles to ensure better circulation for people.

A new line will be put in place between the Raineries car park and the Annex entry to facilitate access to the circuit.
