Club ACO – New membership offer launched

Club ACO is launching a new membership offer. It comprises a core package and optional additional services for a more customisable solution suited to all budgets. You will find details below on the optional add-ons relating to the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Information on other additional services will be sent to you shortly.
Club ACO – New membership offer launched

Why have we introduced this new offer?

The Club has surveyed ACO members over the last year-and-a-half in which we asked those leaving the Club why they had decided not to renew their membership. Another survey was conducted among 1,000 members, particularly regarding hospitality during events. Six round-table discussions with members and non-members were organised in Nantes, Angers and Rennes to find out what people with an interest in cars and motorcycles needed and wanted.

It turns out that club members’ requirements have changed. The people surveyed were looking for a customisable solution rather than a set package offering limited choice. The new offer is designed to harmonise the benefits and put them within all members’ reach. The new offer is more affordable and more flexible.

The Club is switching from 16 membership formulas to just one that can be tailored to the member’s individual needs with optional add-ons.

How does it work?

  • core package that is the same for everyone (motorists, motorcyclists, fans of motorsport on two and four wheels, history buffs, etc.), containing a host of exclusive services and special offers.
  • Optional add-ons allowing members to tailor their package to their own individual needs with customised services available for purchase all year round.

When will the changeover take effect?

During 24 Hours of Le Mans race week, Club representatives will discuss the new package with you and offer to convert your current formula to its closest equivalent at no extra cost. If you agree, you will receive your new card during the summer. If you refuse, you will continue with your current formula until its expiry date, and then switch to the new offer in 2020.

If you’re not coming to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, we shall contact you in September 2019 to replace your current formula with an equivalent package for 2020.
