France R4 - Le Mans Circuit, France
Le Mans Circuit overview
Le Mans EWC CircuitFirst opened in 1966, Le Mans has a unique place in motorsport heritage and has hosted motorcycle grands prix on the Bugatti circuit since 2000 following a major upgrade.


The 4.18km circuit forms part of the famous Circuit de la Sarthe, on which the 24-Heures du Mans is run. It uses the same start-finish straight, incorporating a blindingly fast right-hander leading to the famous Dunlop chicane.

Following this quick start to the lap, Le Mans becomes a stop-start circuit, with a slow right-hander leading on to the main straight. It is one of nine right hand turns, and four lefts.

The circuit is located just over 200km to the south west of Paris, with easy access by road or just an hour on the TGV. Le Mans has its own airport outside the circuit but Paris is better served for direct flights.
