    Without the 24 Hours of Le Mans, endurance racing would not exist. Created in 1923 by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest, the main event on the calendar will celebrate its 81st edition and 90th anniversary. A vote is to be added once the entry list has been published, same for the exact qualifying & race start times.


    Track: Circuit de la Sarthe
    Length: 13.629 km
    Location: Le Mans, France

    Free Practice: Wednesday 19th of June 2013
    Qualifying 1: Wednesday 19th of June 2013
    Qualifying 2: Thursday 20th of June 2013
    Qualifying 3: Thursday 20th of June 2013
    Race: Saturday 22nd of June 2013

    It's not that far away anymore and tickets are on sale on http://www.lemans.org/en/ already. I'd love to meet some of guys there, so please let me know if you're going and where you'll be seated.

    Could everyone who's going please send me a message until at one week before the race at the latest? That way we can exchange phone numbers etc. to arrange everything and make it easier to meet up. I'll take care of the list. :)

    Please include, if comfortable with sharing such information:
    • where you are located (name / number of the grandstand or corner or camping site)
    • phone number including country code (i.e. 0049 1234 5678)
    • other means to contact you, i.e. if you prefer email and get emails on your phone anyway

    I'll try. My seat is in row B, so I guess the fance will be right in front of me. I'll have to walk around the track to find some nice spots. It'll be great to get some long exposure shots tho. :)
  5. I like the fact that the 2013 Le Mans will be held from 19th to 22nd of June 2012.:)

    Anyway... TV for me, having same problem as Scott "i ain't got my passport nor my wheels yet". It's going to be a ~30 hour marathon like last year: Le Mans Legends + The main event. It hurt a bit afterwards, but it was sooooo.... worth it.

    P.S. If it turns out that I'm going to fail to go to the 24h Le Mans in my lifetime I will consider my life as "wasted". In my view this has to go on the "things to do before you die" list.

    I used Brams excellent 2012 post as a template, seemingly I'm not quite ready for the next year. Changed. :)

    I'm looking forward to it very much. I probably won't be going, but it'll probably be televised.

  10. I'm also looking forward to Le Mans again, if it's anything like Daytona 24 hour's it should be good.

    Once again the Le Mans 24 Hours will grab the headlines by putting on three big concerts at the circuit during race week. To celebrate the 90th anniversary of the event Puggy, Asaf Avidan and one of the star groups of the 70s, Earth, Wind & Fire will follow one another on the stage! The concerts are free for all Le Mans 24-Hours ticket holders.

  16. Agreed. Le Mans is also great because you see how former F1 drivers are getting on.. its always interesting to see them in action again.. I'm surprised Kobayashi didnt have a crack at Le Mans, considering he has had ties with Toyota before..
