MMA, “Official Insurer” of the 24 Hours of Le Mans until 2035

Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, and Eric Lécuyer, Managing Director of MMA, have today (19 May) signed an extension to the agreement binding the two entities.

With the 90th 24 Hours of Le Mans (11-12 June 2022) now only days away, locally-based insurance company MMA and race founder and organiser the Automobile Club de l'Ouest are delighted to announce an extension to their partnership until 2035.

As “Official Insurer of the 24 Hours of Le Mans”, MMA will make a vital contribution to improving track safety, and especially onsite medical assistance: the deal includes an agreement to build a new Track Medical Centre, to be opened in 2023. 

Building a Track Medical Centre
To optimise safety at the circuit and improve emergency response, a new Track Medical Centre will be installed under this agreement, including the construction of a helipad to airlift casualties to hospital.
Pursuing the transition towards clean energies
A new class for electric-hydrogen prototypes will be introduced in 2025. As a company committed to soft mobility, MMA will support the initiative.

Pierre Fillon, President, Automobile Club de l’Ouest: We are delighted to renew our partnership with MMA, a local company with nationwide impact. Our two entities have a shared history that goes back over one hundred years. It was only natural to continue a partnership that benefits both the ACO and MMA. I am equally thrilled to see our partner make a commitment to the crucial topic of driver safety. The new medical centre will uphold Le Mans’ reputation as a benchmark for track safety. 

Eric Lécuyer, Managing Director, MMA: In renewing this partnership, MMA is taking the opportunity to strengthen our ties with the ACO on subjects that we hold dear, such as safety and clean energies. The 24 Hours of Le Mans has always been a testing ground and a watchtower. MMA is looking forward to joining the think tank and implementing solutions in these key areas for the public at large, and our clients in particular.
