The 35th Le Mans 24 Hours Karting will be held from 27 to 30 August 2020. We are now accepting applications to a flagship event that will be more open and competitor-friendly than ever before!
The date of the event has been brought forward a month from late September, but this is not the only change introduced for the 2020 Le Mans 24 Hours Karting. The regulations have been overhauled to ensure greater accessibility and a more open competition.
There will be just two classes or groups. The ELITE class will be for Rotax and X30 Brand Cup engines and will be open to national and international C licence holders born before 2007. Additionally, a MASTERS classification will reward driver crews over 32 years of age entered in this class. The second group will be the ESPOIR class for Rotax and X30 Junior Brand Cup engines and will be open to young drivers born between 2004 and 2008 who hold a national or international C-Junior licence. The new system will give lots of competitors fresh hope of topping the 24 Hours Karting rankings.
This is something that the ACO and ASK-ACO hold dear as ASK-ACO president François Bourdin recently explained: “Karting is the first step on the motorsport ladder. The discipline must remain simple and affordable so we can get as many youngsters as possible competing and coming through.”
The closing date for applications is 30 July 2020.
