See previous post .Not all Le Man's history has been rebuilt . One of the worst things about Le Mans until very recently was the almost total lack of toilet and shower facilities in the public spectator areas but in the past 6 years numerous modern toilet blocks and shower facilities have been built .They were sorely needed .Until 2006 I am sure the male spectator to toilet ratio was about 50,000 to 1 and the female ratio was far worse-- which probably explains the paucity of female spectators until recent years

Despite all the new building activity it is pleasing to see the very original, and very French ,open air pissoirs behind the main straight stands have been retained .They can be seen here providing relief to spectators during the 2009 race.
