About the place:
Le Mans is a beautiful city in France that has been attracting visitors for centuries. It’s the birthplace of motorsport and the home to some of the world’s most famous races, such as Le Mans 24 Hours. The medieval city was originally on an island but it expanded over time and now sits where two rivers meet at the junction of three departments: Sarthe, Maine-et-Loire, and Vendée. It’s known for its historic architecture and narrow cobblestone streets lined with old buildings dating back to Medieval times.
Le Mans is a great place to visit for anyone who loves racing. The city has hosted the 24 Hours of Le Mans since 1923. This year marks its 90th anniversary. On June 16-17 all eyes will be on this famous race track once again as teams compete in one of the biggest endurance races out there. Visitors can get an up close look at these amazing machines during Sprint Race Day where fans are able to watch cars take practice laps around the racetrack and even meet drivers behind their favorite cars after the event takes place. There’s no better way to celebrate Le Mans than by visiting during this exciting time.
