The 24 Hours of Le Man is the world’s oldest sports race. It is held every year in June. The race is in Le Mans, France. This race is an endurance race, that was established in 1923. This race is considered one of the most elite car races in the entire world. The 24 hours of Le Mans is a part of the triple crown of racing.
It is a combination of track and public roads. These roads will be closed off for the racing. The drivers will normally go up to about 205 mph. Their cars are driven by at least two drivers. This occurs to prevent the drivers from getting tired and fatigued.
Date, Time, TV Schedule
The race is a 24-hour race. The car that covered the most miles in 24 hours, was the winner, originally. Now the race is about how many laps the car makes. The car must cross the finish line after 24 hours have passed.
The race will run over the weekend of June 15th and 16th. The race will begin promptly at 3:00 p.m. The minutes before the race begins are legendary. As the cars line up along the grandstand straight, there is tension in the air. The bands play all of the racers national anthems as well. Adrenaline is pumping and at 3 o’clock, when the green flag is waved, there are 24 hours of excitement and suspense.
On June 16th, it is a tradition to have Mass at the La Chapelle corner. In 1932, this chapel was built inside the circuit, and mass was celebrated during the 24 hours. The chapel was destroyed, then rebuilt in 2011. At 10:30-12:30, there is always a mass on the last race day.
Then at 3:00 p.m., there is the big finish. Spectators flock to the grandstand from the afternoon on. The drivers do not have many laps left at the time, but you never know what can happen. Then the winners come to the finish line, and winners are awarded.
