Which driver has never dreamed of racing on the 13.626 km of the Le Mans 24 Hours Race Track?
This year, the porschists will be part of the privileged ones who will take the departure between the grandstands before plunging towards Tertre Rouge then to spin in Mulsane Straight with nearly 300 km/h and to link Indianapolis, Arnage and the... Porsche curves!
Indeed, the competitors of the Porsche Sprint Challenge France will compete in two 45-minute races at the opening of Le Mans 24 Hours at the wheel of their Porsches, two races preceded by two free practice sessions and two qualifying sessions on this track used for racing only once a year.
Unlike the 24 Hours, for which a track record is essential to be allowed to start, the Porsche Sprint Challenge France races are reserved for amateur drivers and gentlemen drivers, the only constraint being to drive a racing Porsche: 911 GT3 R, 911 GT3 Cup, 911 GT2 RS Clubsport or Cayman GT4 Clubsport.
The paddock of the Porsche Sprint Challenge France will be installed on the Maison Blanche area, near the Porsche Experience Center which will be reserved for the drivers and their guests from Tuesday to Friday with the possibility of prolonging the weekend to attend the 24 Hours in exceptional conditions.
Tuesday, June 7: administrative and technical checks
Wednesday, June 8: free practices
Thursday, June 9: qualifying practice and race 1
Friday June, 10: race 2
