Le Mans Circuit De La Sarthe

Pit Straight

Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe is one of the most famous race tracks in the world, and annually holds the Le Mans 24 hour endurance race. The main circuit is just over 13.5KM long, and is partially a street circuit, therefore is only used once a year. Extremely high speeds are obtained on the street circuit as 85% of the lap is full throttle.

The Bugatti circuit incorporates the start finish straight and the first corner section, then goes off on a different route. This circuit is more popular and used by DTM, Moto GP and various other race series around the year. The 24 hour race is a week long motorsport festival held in June each year. Hosting around 200,000 fans over the weekend, and over 50 cars provides one of the best events of the year, if not the best!
