The next 24 Hours of Le Mans (September 19-20) will see their organization adapt to the Covid-19 period. The Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) announced this Tuesday 30 June the temporary suspension of the ticket office. To date, only spectators who have already booked their tickets are guaranteed to attend the Sarthoise event.
This measure was taken inexpectation of a positive development of the epidemic and of a possible relaxation of the rules concerning events bringing together a large audience. However, Pierre Fillon, President of the ACO and organizer of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, does not hide the fact that this 2020 edition will take place with a reduced audience compared to previous years (252,000 spectators in 2019).
“Finally, we ask all of our fans and regular spectators for their understanding and kindness. In this unique context, we may not be able to accommodate everyone on the circuit this year. We make every effort, respecting the sanitary measures necessary to protect everyone, to offer a quality event. “
The professionals and volunteers, necessary for the good performance of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, will be able to move to the Sarthe next September. In addition, all ACO members, spectators or approved intermediaries holding reservations already paid for stands, “ACO Member Space” hospitals, reception areas or car parks may supplement these reservations with the purchase of tickets for General Entrances. For any request on this subject, contact the ACO customer service by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
