24 ON SITE - The application to discover the Le Mans 24 Hours

One of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest major concerns is the welcome of its public. The 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours on 18-19 June will offer innovative services to all the spectators. Among them is a practical, convivial playful, free, in a word – indispensable – application called 24 ON SITE! It will help the public, in particular new visitors, to enjoy the event to the full, and above all not to miss out on all the activities on the spot thanks to its rich content and numerous functionalities.

Getting to know the Le Mans 24 Hours and discovering the event isn’t all that simple when one is a newcomer to the world of endurance. The race and the many activities for the general public organised around it such as the fun fair, the three big concert evenings and themed exhibitions, are only the most visible part of what actually goes on.

Thus, the ACO decided to implement new programmes, and to personalise the welcome with this new application, while making it easier to obtain information and give the keys guaranteeing the discovery of the event in better conditions to the ever-increasing number of visitors.

Thanks to 24 ON SITE, an application available free of charge on 12th June in AppStore and on Google Play, you can:

Discover the race, the jobs that go with it, its regulations, its history and the key points at the circuit.
Get your bearings thanks to an interactive map indicating restaurants, car parks, grandstands, first aid posts, giant screens, shuttle stops, pedestrian access and boutiques. Discover all the not-to-be-missed mythic strategic spots at the circuit (Les Hunaudières straight, the Mulsanne corner, the Dunlop curve, etc.).
Take advantage of a rich programme thanks to the packed schedule of events: concerts, zones for kids, Women’s Pavilion, Virtual Room, karts, simulators, exhibitions, the fun fair, etc.
Plan your journey using practical information: how to reach the circuit, buy a ticket at the last minute, find lodgings, and choose your arrival time.

Follow the event with the official media: internet site, social networks, application 24H Le Mans and see what’s happening in the race live. Receive all the results as well as all the latest sports news linked to the Le Mans 24 Hours.
Live the Le Mans 24 Hours all year round: join the MyACO network or become a member of the club.

The aim of this application is to inform, surprise, share, amuse: it’s a special tool to accompany spectators as they find their way round the circuit and discover the Le Mans 24 Hours.
In addition, the ACO will deploy teams to give the public information at the three main entrances and at the information office in the village. Downloading the application beforehand is recommended. It will function without a network and with GPS positioning to show you exactly where you are on the inside of the circuit.

The aim the ACO has set itself is to make the welcome to the Le Mans 24 Hours a mark of excellence.

The application 24 ON SITE, like the Women’s Pavilion, the Fun Area devoted to children as well as the Virtual Reality Room, represents an important step in the construction of the new ACO project, namely; to make the Le Mans 24-Hours circuit a must-visit complex, unique in the world, which is entirely devoted to the motor car, sustainable mobility, and resolutely turned towards the future.

“We’re determined to continue the improvements already undertaken at the circuit and in the welcome zones to enable our spectators to get the maximum enjoyment out of the Le Mans 24-Hours week. The expectations of first timers, in particular new families, are different to those of our faithful fans. The ACO’s priority is to make all our visitors passionate fans and enthusiastic ambassadors for the event to enhance the legend, to make people of all ages dream and - why not? - create vocations,” says Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest.
