The Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) has confirmed that the 24 Hours of Le Mans will be postponed to mid-September, thanks to on-going concerns regarding the coronavirus pandemic.
Most, if not all, motor racing programs worldwide have been put on temporary hiatus – as indeed has most automotive production – as safety concerns regarding COVID-19 continue to escalate. Clearly the most famous endurance race on the planet is no exception. Originally scheduled for 13-14 June, this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans will now take place on 19-20 September.
Were shifting the traditional summer date of its halo race wasn’t enough of a headache, Le Mans’ postponement will also have run-on affects on the 2019/2020 World Endurance Championship, of which Le Mans is the season finale. The revised 19-20 September date overlaps next season’s opening six-hour race at Silverstone, meaning the latter’s provisionally scheduled 5 September start date is also set to be delayed.
