It’s been an unprecedented year of upheaval across the globe, one that has dramatically impacted all manner of sporting competition, with the 88th 24 Hours of Le Mans being no exception. The world’s oldest active sports-car race was forced to move from its customary June start date to September 19 and 20, and for the first time ever, there will be no spectators at the track during the race.
But there will be millions of viewers tuning in when the green flag finally drops and the cars begin roaring around the Circuit de la Sarthe, and the MotorTrend App is the EXCLUSIVE SPOT IN THE U.S. where fans will be able to see the full 24 Hours of Le Mans in its entirety.
