Le Mans

The Le Mans Circuit is without doubt the best known race track in the world thanks to its 24 hour race for cars, that is one of the oldest races on the planet (since 1923). It’s also well known for the tragedy that happened there in 1955. After a contact between two cars, Pierre Levegh’s Mercedes broke in two parts and its engine killed 81 persons on the grandstand.

Over the years, the road track, well known for its Hunaudières straight, has gone a lot of natural changes in order to meet the ever tightening security standards. In 1966 the most technical part of the track was transformed into a permanent circuit . The Bugatti circuit was born !

Ever since there have been numerous changes to the lay-out. The Musée corner, Garage Vert, the Dunlop corner and the straight after this infamous corner in front of the pitlane. The last modification dates from the beginning of 2008 and lengthened the track to its actual 4.185 m. Le Mans: a myth is waiting for you!
