Le Mans Circuit



 

Located south of the city, on the road to Tours, the 24 Hours circuit has changed since its creation in 1923. The origin of this circuit is closely related to the Grand Prix of France, which took place in the Sarthe in 1906 .

This endurance race took place over two days and in a larger route connecting the following towns: Le Mans, Saint-Calais and La Ferte Bernard. After many adventures followed with many transactions, the 24 Hours circuit was born in 1923 under the leadership of three men: Georges Durand, founder of the Information Centre of the Alpes Mancelles, Charles Faroux and journalist Emile Coquille, director of Rudge bicycles -Whitworth.

Since its inception, the length of the plot (17.262 km) was gradually reduced to 13 629 km to provide optimal security related to technological change, especially as the cars approach the speed of 400 km / h on the Mulsanne Straight ...

The famous Le Mans 24 Hours race is the major event of motor sport and the highlight of the FIA ​​World Endurance.

Used ten days a year, the 24 Hours circuit was completed by the realization of permanent circuits: in 1966 "the Bugatti Circuit" (4.185 km long) and then in 1976, "Circuit of The White House" (2, 9 km). These allow the exploitation of tracks throughout the year for different events or events related to motor sports: Le Mans Classic (1st July weekend, even years), Le Mans Story, The Grand Prix of France, the 24 Hours Motorcycles , the 24 Hours Trucks ...

In addition of your coming on the tour, visit the 24 Hours museum is a must!
