Le Mans 24Hour timetable

Tuesday, June 04, 2019

Last Sunday saw the Official Test at the Circuit de La Sarthe ahead of next weeks conclusion to the 2018-19 FIA World Endurance Championship at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

With Le Mans being more of an experience than just another race meeting, here are a few more things to look out for during next week as not only the sixty cars scheduled to race prepare themselves but also as the local communities around the circuit pay homage to the 87th running of the event.

Sunday 9th June sees the start of the scrutineering process - or le pesage from the Place de La Republique in the centre of Le Mans town. Not only are the cars checked for conformity but this will be the first time the public will be able to view and photograph the each driver line with their cars.

Monday 10th June sees the conclusion of the le pesage with the four Aston Martin Racing V8 Vantage GTE's from both the factory squad and Partner team TF Sport due to attend from 15:00hrs local.

Tuesday 11th June will see the entire 180+ drivers pose for the annual official photograph along the pit straight back at the circuit.

The nearby town of Ruadin present their "1949-1959 Birth of Legends" celebration with special emphasis upon rare examples of Aston Martin and Ferrari GT race cars (with others) of that era. This takes place between 16:00-23:00hrs.
