The race has been postponed until September 19/20th

ACO link

The ACO/WEC have made a statement that a decision will be made on 15th April as to if the 24 Hrs of Le Mans will take place in June.
They did state that they expect to race to happen in 2020.

The various ticket agents are either making statements on their websites or contacting their customers by other means.

Brittany Ferries have suspended crossings for now.

From what we have seen online other crossing methods have issued statements and customers seem able to change their bookings.

It is now looking very unlikely that the race will happen in June.
Obviously the health of everyone concerned is paramount and lives are more important than racing.

Keep well and safe.
Let us hope we all can meet in a field in France soon.

Teams are an important part of the Le Mans experience.  Many of us travel and camp with our 'team' and many Beermountaineers are part of their own 'team'. The best dressed team award at the AMM is always a fantastic spectacle.
