For the past 20 years, Motul Petit Le Mans has been THE sporting event in the southeast to experience. With four days’ worth of on-track battles, culminating in the 10-hour IMSA WeatherTech Championship finale showdown on Saturday, October 13th, the action is nonstop. Once you add in the heated manufacturer and team rivalries, kid’s zone, vendors, food trucks, displays, car corrals, camping, Patrón bar, grid walk, autograph sessions and so much more, this event has it all, and at family-friendly prices, too!
The Daytona Prototype internationals (DPi) debuted last year to much fanfare and acclaim, with a slew of new auto manufacturers and teams joining the ranks to put their machines to the ultimate test. This year, all three classes of competition will battle for the top spot on the podium and the overall season-long championship after 10 hours of grueling, wheel-to-wheel racing. The technology on board these race cars is jaw-dropping and seeing it in action is a thrill like no other.
The access for fans at Motul Petit Le Mans is unparalleled, as any ticketholder can step right up to their favorite team and driver for an autograph during the autograph session or can catch them at any point during race week in the open paddock. The pre-race grid also opens on both Friday and Saturday for all fans to wish their favorite drivers good luck before they take the green flag.
The newly-paved Fan Zone is a great place to retreat to and grab a bite to eat, a cold drink or a souvenir to take home. With interactive displays, entertainment and memorabilia also available to browse, the Fan Zone is just another reason why Motul Petit Le Mans offers something for everyone.
Families can also check out the Kid’s Zone out on Spectator Hill, which is one of the greatest vistas around the circuit. Parents can let their kids loose on inflatables and relax with the picturesque Road Atlanta esses framing one of the most well-known series of curves in all of racing. Best of all, children 12 and under enter the event for free with a paid adult.
The 21st Annual Motul Petit Le Mans truly offers something for everyone, from the die-hard IMSA fan to the casual spectator who just wants to have a good time with friends. The amount of things to see and do are endless, and the on-track action at Motul Petit Le Mans is sure to keep you on the edge of your seat!
