After a year hit by the coronavirus pandemic around the world, motorsport is beginning to have a normality. This week one of the most anticipated news by fans was confirmed, since after 2020, in which there was no public, they will be able to return in the coming months. The organization of 24 Hours of Le Mans confirmed that the stands will have fans.
In a statement released this week, the Western Automobile Club (ACO. Owner of the circuit), confirmed that up to 50,000 fans will be able to attend to the circuit of The Sarthe, the days August 21 and 22, when the historic race is run. On 2020 the test took place without an audience, and the team was victorious Toyota, with Brendon Hartley, Sébastien Buemi and Kazuki nakajima.
Anyone who wants to attend the La Sarthe circuit to be part of the 50,000 people who will be in the stands, will have to meet a requirement to enter. First of all, they must carry a ‘health passport’. This consists of health details, such as whether or not they are vaccinated against COVID. If they are not, they will have other options to enter.
Fans must enter with a negative PCR before entering. In addition, they have to obtain a certificate that proves that they went through the disease in the last six months, since they would have natural antibodies. All this was confirmed by the organization of the race in the last hours. “By reducing capacity and using the health passport, we can safely organize a top quality event,” they confirmed.
The days of testing and qualifying for the 24-hour race will not be open to the public. Fans will only be able to enter from August 21 to 22, when the test is carried out, which returns to its original date. Due to the pandemic, in 2020 the race was delayed more than a month, taking place in September.
