The 100th anniversary edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans is set to be an extraordinary occasion, commemorating a century of this iconic endurance race.

Anticipated with great enthusiasm, a record-breaking crowd of 300,000 individuals is expected to converge upon the Circuit de la Sarthe in northwest France. They will come together to partake in the centenary festivities and bear witness to the pinnacle of racing events, making this a truly unforgettable experience.
