Chequered flag for a successful 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual 2022

Posted on

The chequered flag has been shown for the 2022 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual – the grand finale to the 2021-22 Le Mans Virtual Series. The event brought together 200 top line professional drivers, including F1 World Champion Max Verstappen, INDYCAR Champion Alex Palou and motorsport legend Juan Pablo Montoya, and the world’s best sim racers from 39 different countries, racing on 116 different simulators in 50 cars on the legendary French track.


Following a successful and impressive event which was broadcast live from Studio Gabriel in Paris on TV and digital channels across the world, the world’s biggest virtual endurance race has drawn to a conclusion.


Gérard Neveu, Executive Director of the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual commented: “This has once again been a huge team effort with so many people involved in multiple areas. Due to the ever-evolving worldwide Covid pandemic, changes in format and to driver line ups all had to be made at relatively short notice. We want to pay tribute to everyone for their energy, enthusiasm, professionalism and expertise by saying a sincere and warm thank you to…
