Goodwood confirm Le Mans Prototypes for 77th Members' Meeting
The Le Mans 24 Hours is one of *the* bucket list races for any petrolhead. A test of man and machine like no other, the race has become legendary in its almost 100-year history.
Watching the fastest closed-wheel racing cars in the world thundering down the Mulsanne Straight at the Circuit de la Sarthe is a sight – and sound – that every motorsport fan should experience at least once.
And this spring for the first time ever, you will be able to see these magnificent machines at Goodwood Motor Circuit.
Goodwood has confirmed that some of the most iconic Le Mans Prototypes of the last 20 years will perform a high-speed demonstration at the 77th Members’ Meeting, swapping the Mulsanne Straight for the Lavant Straight, right in the middle of the Goodwood Estate, at dusk on the Saturday night.
“Le Mans Prototypes are some of the fastest racing cars in the world, and some of the most fascinating. What other race has no restriction on engine type and has seen victories for petrol, diesel and hybrid cars in just a quarter of a century?” Said Matt Hearn, Motorsport Content Manager at Goodwood.
“We have chosen to run the demo as dusk falls on Saturday, to capture some of that Le Mans magic.”
Tickets to the 77th Members’ Meeting are available now to Goodwood Road Racing Club and Fellowship Members. For information on how to join the Fellowship click here.
