2024 24 Hours of Le Mans: The Hypercars are coming to town!

2024 24 Hours of Le Mans: The Hypercars are coming to town!

Next week, the traditional Scrutineering sessions mark the beginning of 24 Hours of Le Mans race week. This season, the French 24-hour marathon is the fourth round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). On Saturday 8 June at 15:30, Le Mans city centre will be welcoming some exceptional guests. The Hypercars are coming to town! All nine makes in the top class will be parading their cars along a 2.1-kilometre loop through the city.

Last year, the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) and the local authorities organised a procession of racing cars as part of the Centenary celebrations, much to the delight of the crowds lining the streets. It was the first time the show-stopping Le Mans racing cars were driven through the city. 

This year, nine Hypercars, one LMP2 and seven LMGT3s will end Saturday’s Scrutineering session with a vroom. They will be joined by a Safety Car and the Bentley 3 Litre Sport that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1924. That year, John Duff drove the Bentley from Brooklands (UK) to Le Mans, and this year the car will travel the same route and remain in Le Mans for a while as an exhibit at the 24 Hours of Le Mans Museum (from 9 June). 

The 2.1-kilometre loop from Quai Louis Blanc at the foot of the Roman wall on the river Sarthe, returning via the Tunnel Wilbur Wright, taking in rue Gambetta, Place de la République, Boulevard René Levasseur and Place des Jacobins is twice as long as last year’s route and will give more people a chance to admire several endurance racing stars, including 2023 winner the Ferrari 499P, and the recently unveiled BMW M Hybrid V8 Art Car. 

For safety reasons, pedestrians will be permitted to cross the road at allocated times only: 15:38 and 15:51. Marshals and other officials will survey the whole route. Spectators are requested to comply with instructions from officials on site to ensure maximum enjoyment for all!
