Camping & Campervan Hire for the F1 Grand Prix in France
The F1 Grand Prix is hosted by the Circuit Paul Ricard near Marseille in the Saint-Baume National Park. A spectacular region with (almost!) guaranteed sunny weather during June. As with any trip to France, space is not a problem. There is ample room for tents and motorhomes, normally located at the end of the airstrip (centre-left of the photo below).
Circuit Paul Ricard
According to their website, the campsite is open from noon Wednesday until noon Monday so there is no rushing to and from the event. Simply book a “bare unit” for your vehicle starting at €99. There are motorhome wastewater services available on site. Full 3-day tickets start from a very reasonable €149 and race day tickets from €119.
There is a lot to enjoy about putting up a tent and camping under the stars. However, trying to blow up the airbed with the car battery, sleeping on a rolled out mat or finding a slightly worse-for-wear new friend lying next to you at 3 am isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. Instead, trying campervan hire for the F1 Grand Prix in France lets you join in the camping festivities but with a few extra comforts.
Modern motorhomes have all you need for an event like the F1 grand prix
Our modern vehicles come with plenty of fixed beds for a good night’s sleep. Fully fitted kitchen with gas hob, fridge and freezer plus shower and WC with air-conditioning throughout the driver cab. When you leave to watch the race, independent locks across each section of the motorhome will secure your belongings.
Enjoy more than just the racing
Our depot is perfectly located south of Paris for those flying into France’s largest airport. This does mean there is some driving to do down the circuit but this provides the perfect excuse to explore France on the way. You could drive the stunning route along the Great Alpine Road, stop off at the vibrant city of Lyon and enjoy some time in the Morvan National Park with its idyllic lakes and countryside.
