The Le Mans 24 Hours

The Le Mans 24 Hours takes place every year, but no two races are alike. 2015 was marked by the return of Porsche, which won the race and at the same time opened its Le Mans Porsche Experience, the only one in France
The 2016 event shouldn't disappoint, and promises some fine duels with prestigious manufacturers such as Ford, returning for the 50th anniversary of the historic Ford GT triple at the Le Mans 24 Hours in 1966. Ford, Posche, Audi, Toyota .. . a great cast of stars on the starting line!

Near the Le Mans 24 Hours racing circuit, Le Mans Karting International offers 3 circuits and 4 tracks. On Europe's largest karting complex, everyone can find what they're looking for, from leisure to competition, not to mention the youngest among us, from 7 years of age.

An experience not to be missed!

Home of the Le Mans 24 Hours, Sarthe is naturally the promised land of all drivers, professional or amateur, who take great pleasure in mastering the roaring power of all types of motorised vehicles. The most famous permanent circuit in Europe, and indeed the world, is open throughout the year for driving courses taught by instructors of the highest level. For a safe way to get out on track for the first time, or for some intense improvement sessions, come and test the Proto Pescarolo, cars from the Porsche school or racing bikes.
This year, don't forget the Le Mans Classic 2016, this great race of collectors' cars, a retrospective that preserves the legend of the Le Mans 24 Hours, techniques tested and refined year after year at Le Mans.
Drivers who dare take the wheel of such past glories realise that mastering these machines was a different matter each time. The same sport, no doubt: the speed, grip and competition from those they're looking to overtake, and leave in their wheeltracks! The art of driving them must never be lost - that's the mission of the Le Mans Classic. As serious as it is fun!
