Rafael Nadal to kick off the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans!
World-renowned tennis champion Rafael Nadal is to be official race starter for the 24 Hours of Le Mans on Saturday 16 June 2018. The fantastic sportsman is a fitting ambassador for the iconic race. Make sure you’re watching at 15h00 on 16 June!
Nadal often visits France in June, for the French Open at Roland-Garros in Paris, which he won for the tenth time last year. He will be back to defend his title on the clay courts of Paris, with the firm intention of adding another trophy to his cabinet.
This year, he’ll be staying a little longer as the Spanish champion will have the distinguished honour of sending off the field of sixty participants in the world’s greatest endurance race.
