Heavily Revised 2020 Le Mans 24 Hours Schedule Released

Four-Day Event, announcement ref spectators on 30th June

The 88th 24 Hours of Le Mans, postponed to 19-20 September in the age of the COVID-19 crisis, will follow a condensed four-day schedule for the 62 car grid and a full support programme.

Between Thursday 17 and Sunday 20 September, the schedule includes four free practice sessions, qualifying, the Hyperpole session and a warm-up, as well as the race proper, the schedule revised to cut costs.

Scrutineering procedures will take place at the Circuit on Wednesday before the 62 cars take to the track on Thursday for the free practice sessions, qualifying and night-time practice. Friday will see more practice sessions and the new Hyperpole shoot-out where 24 competitors will battle it out on the 13.626-km circuit in a test of sheer speed, without the “heavy traffic”!

The race itself will start at 14:30 on Saturday.

The Road to Le Mans and Porsche Carrera Cup support races stay on the schedule.
