The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world's oldest sports car race in endurance racing, held annually since 1923 near the town of Le Mans, France. Commonly known as the Grand Prix of Endurance, it is organised by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest (ACO) and runs on a circuit containing closed public roads that are meant not only to test a car and driver's ability to be quick, but also to last over a 24 hour period.
My father has been going for the last 30 years, it is a phenomenal event. Within the last 10 years he started taking my brother along, I never went as I simply did not have an interest in cars or racing. Now, as time has passed I have got into it big time, and should hopefully be going to Le Mans this year, I can't fucking wait.
Has anyone else been, or is planning to go this year?
