We are delighted to offer 2 & 3 night packages to the 2018 Qatar Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe at Chantilly with the option to purchase reserved Main Grandstand seats at a supplement. The Arc weekend is the championship of European racing featuring 11 Group races over two days. The purse for the whole weekend of the “Arc” meeting in 2015 was €7.9 million, with €5 million being reserved for the Prix de l’Arc de Triomphe itself.
The Arc last year…
2016 saw another first for the Arc with a 1-2-3 finish for Aiden O'Brien courtesy of Found, Highland Reel and Order of St. George. This is the first time a trainer has sent out the first three home in the Arc's 96 year history.
Our packages are fully inclusive, comprising roundtrip transfers from Gare du Nord to your hotel along with roundtrip transfers and Pesage admission to Chantilly Racecourse on both Saturday and Sunday. Our representatives are on hand throughout the weekend to ensure the smooth running of your stay from start to finish. With a selection of Eurostar train departures and flights from most of the UK’s major airports together with Dublin, a wide range of hotels, and our ability to provide you as an option of purchasing reserved numbered seats in the main grandstand we are confident that ours is a Winning Formula.
