The Circuit de la Sarthe, with 38 turns and 13.626 km, is already ready for the most anticipated race of 2021, the 24 Hours of Le Mans starting on 21 August, where the best drivers will test their endurance in the “day and night” race.
Le Mans 2021 will take place, albeit not on the traditional June dates, but in an offline format. In 2020, due to the limitations of covid-19, the race was held online and it was the world’s first 24-hour Virtual Le Mans Grand Prix.
This year 62 cars will start at Le Mans. Thirty-three cars are eligible to score WEC World Championship points – of which 50 will be available this weekend.
