24 Hours of Le Mans postponed to August in the hope of receiving an audience

The 24 Hours of Le Mans, originally planned for 12 and 13 June, will be postponed to 21-22 August due to the corona pandemic in order to increase the chance to receive an audience. The organizers announced this on Thursday.

“This decision is the right one, even if it was difficult to take,” explains the president of l’Automobile Club de l’Ouest Pierre Fillon. “We cannot imagine running the 24 Hours of Le Mans without an audience for the second year in a row.”

In 2020, the famous French endurance match was postponed from June to September due to the corona crisis.
