  • Each campsite has recycling bins for glass and packaging plus bins for general waste. Please use them correctly.
  • The Arnage, Beausejour, Clos Fleuri, Cormier, Epinettes and Mulsanne campsites have free shuttles available to take you to the circuit. If you are camping in Hippodrome or Prairie, you can go to Epinettes for access to the free shuttle.
