Awarded the World’s Sport Event by National Geographic, the 24 Hours of Le Mans is the pinnacle of endurance racing, second in spectators only to the Indy 500.
The race is organized by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) and runs on the Circuit de la Sarthe, which contains a mix of closed public roads and a specialist racing circuit, in which racing teams have to balance speed with the cars’ ability to race for 24 hours.
LE MANS IN NUMBERS
300,000 spectators are expected to gather at the 8.469mi, 38-turn Circuit De La Sarthe in Le Mans, France on June 18-19 to live the 84th running of this legendary race, born on May 26-27, 1923 and that today reached a record of 60-car entry in four different classes.
