On the 5th and the 6th of May, the cars that will race in the mythical 24 hours of Le Mans will come to Valencia in one of the five events that make up the calendar. They are calling it the Valencia 1,000 kilometres, and it will be the last opportunity for drivers and teams to compete before Le Mans, held in mid-June. The 1,000 kilometres will mean that the drivers will have to complete a total of a total of 250 laps of the winding course of the Ricardo Tormo Circuit of the Valencia Region in Cheste. And the good news is that entry is free, and only 10 euros for entry to the paddock.
Valencia joins the great circuits of Monza (Italy), Nurburgring (Germany), Spa (Belgium) and Silverstone (Great Britain), which all celebrate this championship. 160 drivers from 26 different nationalities grouped in 44 teams from 11 countries participate in the championship. An average of 40 cars occupied the starting grid with 33 teams.
Peugeot has announced the presence of their prototype 908 in all the races to prepare for their race at the 24 hours of Le Mans.
