24 Hours Le Mans 2021: schedule, TV and where to watch online

Outside of its usual date, the most important race of the World Endurance returns. We tell you everything you need to know so you don't miss any details.


One more year, the 24 Hours of Le Mans are back. The quintessential event of the Endurance World Cup returns in its 89th edition, with a little more normality compared to 2020, but still marked by the coronavirus pandemic. And it is that, the mythical French race has had to postpone its date again until this end of August, with June being its usual date to run. The positive thing about it taking place this weekend (August 21-22) is that the public will be able to be back in the stands. Of course, with a limited capacity of 50,000 fans, a fifth of what this event actually welcomes.

The race, which will take place at the Circuit de La Sarthe and will score for the FIA WEC 2021 (the World Endurance Championship), will have a total of 62 cars entered. Among them, the participation of three Spaniards stands out, who will be part of the starting grid of these 24 Hours of Le Mans.

For this edition, Miguel Molina, Ferrari driver, will participate (for the fifth time in his sports career) together with Daniel Sierra and Davide Rigon, with an AF Corsé Ferrari 488 GTE # 52. Antonio García will also repeat participation in this mythical French race with his Corvette C8R # 63. At 41 years old, the Madrid driver will dispute his fifteenth date, back after a year without racing due to the absence of Chevloet due to the coronavirus pandemic. Finally, Roberto Merhi will race with an Aurus 01-Gibson # 25 from the LMP2 G-Drive Racing team (this will be his third participation).Schedules: What time does the 24 Hours of Le Mans start?
