12 | Providing Specialist Horse Racing Holidays With a Commitment to Excellence QATAR PRIX DE L'ARC DE TRIOMPHE Longchamp 03 OCTOBER 2010 THE HORSE RACING ABROAD PAVILION GRANDSTAND Our Exclusive Facilities at Longchamp Since 1981 we have had the unique facility of our own private Grandstand at Longchamp. The Pavilion, which dates from 1927, is a listed building. 2001 saw the start of our major renovation programme to the Pavilion Grandstand that has resulted in improvements to the facilities on the ground floor and to the luncheon rooms on the first floor. The Pavilion is for the exclusive use of our clientele and, as a result, there are minimal queues for betting, eating and drinking in comparison to the rest of Longchamp. The Pavilion also prides itself on having spacious viewing areas from which to watch the races. The Pavilion is now " the place to be" at Longchamp as far as the British turfists are concerned! Many famous faces of the British Racing fraternity are to be seen enjoying a casual lunch in the self- service restaurant or a celebratory drink at the bar! To assist our clients in the Pavilion area, France Galop arrange English race commentaries on both Saturday and Sunday. Horse Racing Abroad Pavilion Badges £ 75.00 each, valid both days! This badge will give you access to all areas of the Horse Racing Abroad Pavilion including a covered, reserved Grandstand seat, a racing paper and a racecourse programme on both Saturday and Sunday. Arc day is a very special day in the racing calendar and gentlemen are respectfully requested to wear jacket and tie for admission into the Pavilion area. Remember! These badges may only be bought by clients of Horse Racing Abroad. They must be purchased in advance, in conjunction with our travel arrangements.

Look out for improvements in the restaurant and champagne facilities and changes to the front of the stand and terrace area. VIEWING The Horse Racing Abroad Pavilion Grandstand provides 1,200 reserved seats and is situated 1 - 1 ¼ furlongs before the winning post, with an excellent view of the course. From your seat you will be able to see all the action round the long turn at Longchamp together with the positioning of the horses as they make their final run on the three furlong straight. ACCESS Security staff control the entrances to the Pavilion area. Therefore, we request that your badge is visible at all times to avoid delays. BETTING You will find 12 fully computerised Tote ( Pari Mutuel) booths in the main hall of the Pavilion Grandstand. Bets may be made with a minimum stake of 2 euros or any multiple thereof and they may be placed, and winnings collected, at the same window. Although most of the French Tote ( Pari Mutuel) employees in our Pavilion speak English, our own staff are happy to assist with any language or betting difficulties. BUREAU DE CHANGE We are pleased to be able to offer our clients a Bureau de Change service inside the Pavilion. The rate of exchange is set by the authorities at Longchamp. CLOAKROOM For your convenience, a " vestiaire" is located in the hall of the Grandstand. Our Exclusive Catering Facilities We fully appreciate that a day's racing, however exciting, is also very tiring and that copious amounts of fresh air also work up an appetite! The public areas of Longchamp Racecourse provide only very limited catering facilities and, for this reason, we have developed a wide choice within our own Pavilion Grandstand. In this way, your day's racing at Longchamp will be more comfortable, less tiring and, above all, more enjoyable! Food And Drink Self- Service Restaurant Our " Marquee Restaurant" serves buffet lunch comprising both hot and cold dishes, including seafood. A comprehensive selection of wines, beers and soft drinks provide the perfect accompaniment to your meal! The restaurant incorporates a seating area with television monitors to ensure that you keep in touch with all the action! Champagne Bar Serving a choice of quality champagnes! Point of No Return Bar The " Point of No Return" Bar serves a wider choice of wines & beers than you would otherwise find in the public bars at Longchamp. Sandwich and Coffee Bar Serving light refreshments throughout the day. ADDITIONAL FACILITIES We also have a limited number of reserved seats in the Municipal Grandstand, situated past the winning post, at a cost of £ 85 each.
