ACO Unveil New ‘Don Panoz’ Bridge At Le Mans

Pedestrian pinch-point to be removed with new tunnel overbridge

The ACO has revealed both the design (above) and pictures of the installation of the new “Don Panoz” pedestrian bridge spanning the gap between the start/ finish straight tribunes and the outside of Turn One at the Circuit de la Sarthe.

The new bridge, named with the blessing of the Panoz family removes the conflict between pedestrian traffic looking to follow the outside edge of the circuit, and traffic entering and leaving the circuit via the main tunnel behind the ACO museum.

The bridge will be fully open and complete in time for the 2020 Le Mans 24 Hours.
