Latest 24 Hours of Le Mans entry list revealed
Rescheduled from 13–14 June to 19–20 September, the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans - round 7 of FIA WEC Season 8 - will take place behind closed doors.
The Automobile Club de l’Ouest has favoured postponement over cancellation from the outset of the Covid-19 pandemic while, for the 59 team entries involved, it is crucial that the race go ahead.
This is not the first time the 24 Hours of Le Mans has not been not run in June. The first race, in 1923, took place in May, then in 1956 the race was run on 28–29 July because of works, and in 1968 it was postponed to September due to civil unrest.
The 88th race will also take place in September and – for the first time ever – with no trackside spectators. The other major difference is the change in daylight hours. In September, almost half the race will be during the hours of darkness. This parameter may influence team strategy but does nothing to deter competitors from their annual outing on the famous 13-kilometre circuit.
