Famous for being one of the world’s longest circuits the Circuit de la Sarthe is also called Circuit des 24 Heures. It is a semi permanent race track, parts of which are public roads, and are accessible when an event is not taking place. For all those who love and enjoy automobile races, this course is often considered to be sacred, and with the 24 Hours of Le Mans being conducted here, enthusiasts from all over the flow into the stands to witness this endurance race. A liberating experience, this nail biting competition must be viewed by all at least once in their lifetime. As of today, the track stretches to a length of 13.629 kilometers, which includes 38 turns. A smaller track is also on the same site, and is only 4.273 kilometers long. The Circuit de la Sarthe was opened to public in the year 1923. Over the years, the speed of the cars increased, which in turn brought to light the quality of the track which did not seem suitable then. Modifications were made, and the race rules made the competition even more challenging. This journey of the track can be observed in the museum, Musee des 24 Heures du Mans which is located in the vicinity.
