Next year, Michelin Le Mans Cup competitors will take the track at six top European circuits, with a new venue added to the calendar: Mugello in Italy.
The 2024 Michelin Le Mans Cup season will get underway with the Prologue at the Barcelona circuit in April. These official tests will be followed by the opening round at the same track, then the second race of the year at Le Castellet in France in early May.
Once again, Road to Le Mans is sure to be a highlight of the season prior to the 92nd 24 Hours of Le Mans (15-16 June). MLMC competitors will hit the track for two 55-minute rounds: the first on Thursday 14 June and the second on Friday 15 June.
The Spa-Francorchamps circuit in Belgium will serve as the venue for the fourth race of the year. Normally held in September, the round has been moved to the end of August on the calendar. The Mugello circuit in Italy is set to host its first Michelin Le Mans Cup event in September, and the season finale will be held on Saturday 19 October in Portimão, Portugal.
2024 Michelin Le Mans Cup Calendar:
Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO): "The 2024 Michelin Le Mans Cup calendar will allow competitors an outstanding opportunity to battle on the greatest tracks in Europe. This endurance racing gateway grows year after year, gaining increasing relevance. We look forward to the season kickoff in Barcelona in April!"
Frédéric Lequien, Le Mans Endurance Management (LMEM) CEO: "We are pleased to announce the 2024 Michelin Le Mans Cup calendar. We’ve elected to return to five of the venues visited in 2023, with Mugello hosting its debut MLMC event in September. Each of these tracks will provide a variety of challenges for our competitors, partners and stakeholders. Once again, the highlight of the season will be the two Road to Le Mans races in June, which offers the teams and drivers the opportunity to race on the full La Sarthe circuit in front of the world’s media and tens of thousands of fans. We are looking froward to another full grid of entries and some great racing action."
