If you look at these photos taken months ago you'll see that the Porsche centre is at the extreme left of Maison Blanche, so doesn't totally impinge on the camping:-







The main MB entrance is over 100 yds away and your whiffy loo is preserved. If I am passing I'll take more photos.

Thx
One thing that puzzles me is if it's so near the grandstand complex, then how are they are supposedly losing 500 camping pitches?

Hi Barry,
            I think the problem has more o do with the construction site rather than the actual building. i.e. machines and supply dumps etc taking up additional space beyond the foot print of the building.
I predict plenty of open space but not used come race day.

In other words, they have no idea how much space they'll have available, so they've picked a number. I wouldn't be surprised if any spaces left end up being sold on the gate or at the ticket office just before and during race week. I have to stop by the ticket office when I arrive in June anyway, so might well ask if they've any MB space available still.

In addition, there is a 4x4 course and a few other bits, that must be in the camping area

Yes the one at Silverstone has a hill course, skid pan, parking areas etc all of which would reduce the camping space if repeated at LM

As of yesterday, 500 pitches is still the confirmed number. Thise who lose their places are being bumped to Houx and those who lose Houx to Les Epinettes.I drove past yesterday and the building, externally at least, seems pretty well finished with the obligatory hand rails on the roof for paying spectators. However, and correct me if I'm wrong here, I don't seem to remember a large llamp post with four big spots near the toilet block at the entrance to Maison Blanche. Anyway, it's there now.

Well, the bad news is I've had the call from just tickets and as Maison blanche is losing plots, we have lost ours😥 He gave us a choice of money back, blue Nord, Houx, Houx annexe, expo or Terte rouge. After a brief call to Rhino we have decide to try Terte rouge this year.
He did reckon that MB may be back to normal next year though.
So if anyone fancies a cold one, come visit Team booze n tabs on Terte rouge this year.

Hi, is there any news on the new Les Epinettes site?  OK it's not MB, but it may not be half bad.

I have just heard that the 2015 Le Mans Legends Pits will be located within MB in the circuit-side part of the newly re-developed Porsche Experience area.

It looks like the old MB viewing bank may be back in business, as the concrete wall appears to have gone, and they've cut down all the trees

Hi Max,
          The skid pad / circle appears to be on "The Golden Triangle" where I used to camp with the WANCS and Smokie back before we were evicted to BN. Anyone remember Lake George ?
