Classic Grand Touring, a motor racing tour operator, is gearing up for the historic racing season with a seven-day driving tour to the Grand Prix de Pau Historique on May 17.
Thomas Brimblecombe, of Classic Grand Touring, said: “The Grand Prix de Pau Historique remains one of our favourites on the historic motor racing calendar and to celebrate this we will have the opportunity to do parade laps of the circuit.
“Pau is the oldest and most exciting of the remaining street circuits and provides great racing and a convivial atmosphere. It is a lovely old city with thrilling views of the Pyrenees and our central hotel adjacent to the track will take you to pole position to see the action in a heart beat.”
Departing from Portsmouth, tour participants will arrive into Caen and drive through some of France’s most beautiful and quiet country roads. The route on the first days will stop at the famous Hotel de France in the small town of La-Chartre-sur-le-Loir, famous for its association with the 24hs of Le Mans race, followed by an overnight stay at the historic Abbaye de Fontevraud. The tour then continues south to Bergerac before arriving in Pau on May 20.
The weekend action starts at Pau with tickets for the practice and racing, parade laps of the circuit so participants get a driver’s eye view of the track. A superb lunch will be enjoyed in the paddock restaurant on the Saturday and Sunday, before driving to Santander for the cruise ferry back to Portsmouth on May 23.
