Budget Planner – 2018 French Grand Prix

Filed in French F1 Travel Guide by on 0 Comments

Use our budget planner to work out the cost of your weekend at the 2018 French Grand Prix. We’ve crunched the numbers on going to the Paul Ricard circuit in Le Castellet on June 22-24.

The French Grand Prix returns to the F1 calendar this year for the first time since 2008. The cheapest way to do a weekend at the Paul Ricard circuit is to stay at one of the campsites near the track. Alternatively, you can stay in the nearby city of Marseille (France’s second biggest city), where you’ll find a good selection of accommodation to suit all budgets, but it will cost more each day to get to and from Paul Ricard. Tickets for the French Grand Prix are reasonably expensive when compared to other European races.

  • Average costs below are per person based on a stay of 3 nights with race tickets, accommodation and spending money. The prices do not include flights (or other travel costs) required to reach Le Castellet in France.

Trackside prices at Paul Ricard

We don’t yet have any information on the cost and quality of the trackside food and beverage offering at the French Grand Prix. However, we did attend Le Mans last year and would reasonably expect similar prices: large beer around €8, soft drinks and bottled water €3-4, meals €8-12.
