Health Protocol 2021 - 24 Hours of Le Mans

As organiser of public events, the Automobile de l’Ouest takes its responsibilities seriously. As usual, we are liaising closely with the public authorities and sports federations, to host the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the best possible conditions while protecting the health and safety of everyone present at the circuit.

Our health protocols are in line with government rulings and federation guidelines.

All efforts shall be made to ensure that hygiene measures and physical distancing rules are applied and movements around the circuit enclosure are carefully managed, with hand sanitizer provided at multiple points around the site.

Because circumstances surrounding the Covid-19 pandemic are constantly changing, the various measures applied by the ACO may be updated to comply with future government announcements.

Health Pass : Informations

You have a ticket for the 2021 24 Hours of Le Mans
1 - You will need to show a health pass to enter the circuit (applies to all spectators aged over 11)
2 - You may also need to show proof of identity

The health pass shall be presented on arrival at the circuit and requires proof of one of the following:

- You have been tested (PCR or antigen) with a negative result within the last 48 hours
- You are fully vaccinated
- You have recovered from COVID-19, attested by a positive PCR test result at least 15 days and no more than 6 months old

If tested or vaccinated in France, you can download a 2D-DOC QR Code via the French TousAntiCovid application or via the SI-DEP web platform.

*Proof of a negative Covid test within the last 48 hoursfor large events where the Health Pass is required. In France, after a RT-PCR and antigen test, the result is entered into the SI-DEP system by the healthcare professional and a certificate is produced. This can be printed out and is also sent to the patient by email and text message containing a link to the SI-DEP platform. The patient can then import this proof into the TousAntiCovid application:
- using the paper document or PDF file obtained via Si-DEP along with the test result
- by scanning the QR Code found on the left-hand side of the document
- by clicking on the link on the Si-DEP platform, which imports the test result directly into the TousAntiCovid app

The test validity period (48 hours) for admission to the circuit is non-negotiable (no 2 or 3-day tolerance).

**Full vaccination, which is acquired:
• 2 weeks after the second injection of a two-dose vaccination (Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca)
• 4 weeks after injection of a single-dose vaccination (Johnson & Johnson)
• 2 weeks after injection of a single dose for persons who have recovered from Covid-19 (single injection).
Since 27 May, anyone who has been vaccinated in France (including those vaccinated before 3 May) can obtain a vaccination certificate from the Assurance Maladie patient platform. You can also consult a healthcare professional of your choice – they will be able to obtain and print out your certificate.
Once you have your vaccine certificate, scan the QR Code on the right to import and store it on your phone, via the TousAntiCovid app.

***Positive RT-PCR or antigen test showing that you have recovered from Covid-19, at least 15 days and no more than 6 months old:
Positive test results (RT-PCR or antigen), at least two weeks and no more than 6 months old, attest to a reduced risk of Covid-19 reinfection. Follow the procedure described above to recover your positive test result via SI-DEP.

How to get a 2D-DOC QR Code

After your test, use the link in the text message sent via SI-DEP to obtain this code.
If you no longer have access to the link in the text message, you can obtain your certificates via the SI-DEP web platform at the end of your vaccination cycle: go to

What do I need to show at the circuit entrance?

It is recommended that you show a digital certificate (which you can download from the TousAntiCovid app). However, you can also show a PDF document on your mobile or a printed document.


What about foreign health certificates?

The rules on foreign health certificates will be confirmed in July. Presently, we recommend you arrange a PCR or antigen test in France with the results available no more than 48 hours before your arrival at the circuit.
