24 Hours of Le Mans: the centenary edition!

While the Sarthe in general and Le Mans in particular have so much to offer, from picturesque natural landscapes to the city’s remarkably preserved historic centre, the highlight of the year is undoubtedly the famous 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance-focused sports car race. And this year promises to be particularly special because it’s the celebration of the event's centenary. Book your room at the Hotel Le Mans Country Club quickly to enjoy it!


A legendary race

In 1923, the Le Mans circuit hosted the first 24-hour endurance car race. It quickly became legendary and is even considered, along with the Grand Prix of Monaco and that of Indianapolis, one of the three most prestigious races of its kind in the world. Over the years, the technology has evolved, teams have come and gone, but the thrill of the event and the passion the public have for it have remain constant. This year, as we celebrate the centenary of the competition, the excitement promises to be more intense than ever!


The race and much more

Even if the race lasts ‘only’ 24 hours, from June 10th to 11th, you can enjoy the party for more than 10 days, from June 1st. With a special exhibition at the 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum, scrutineering, entertainment, launch party, support and kart races, and free practice, each day proves to be exciting. And you can make the most of the 24 Hours experience with driving and karting, a helicopter flight over the race, a premium welcome or even an access pass to the paddock and the gridwalk. There will be so much to enjoy during this centenary edition!


Enjoy the contrast between the vibrant and dizzying atmosphere of the 24-hour circuit and the calm and bucolic elegance of the Hotel Le Mans Country Club on the occasion of the centenary of the legendary race.
