The trip will include lodging for at least five nights, tickets to the Le Mans race, tickets to the Corral, Paddock passes, transportation from Paris to Le Mans and back, two days of sightseeing from Paris to Le Mans and transportation to and from the track to lodging and to Le Mans city for the Parade of Pilots.

Museum in Motion: Mosport / Canada
The 2011 MiM season continues with the Mosport Tour, July 19-24, to Ontario, Canada. Meeting in Niagara-on-the-Lake, Ontario, the 5-day tour takes participants through Ontario enjoying back roads, resorts, quaint villages, a casino and ending with two days attending the ALMS race at the Mosport International Raceway. Enjoy a VIP tour of the St. Catharines engine plant, where Corvette motors are made, and the Oshawa Assembly Plant where Camaros are assembled.
This event is limited to only 35 cars/70 participants and the fee covers hotels for 6 nights, the welcoming banquet; dinner Wednesday, a boat ride and BBQ with Corvettes of Durham and corral access at Mosport. At the track attendees will enjoy corral parking, access to the paddock, parade lap, celebrity car show and a BBQ lunch.
For members the tour fee is $1700 for the driver and $390 for their guest. Non-member fees are an additional $40 each and include a Museum membership. The Museum in Motion tours are very popular and with limited space it’s important to sign up here promptly while there is still space.
Special Event Notes: You will need a passport to enter Canada and return to the U.S.
