Goodwood to showcase Le Mans cars for the first time

5 December 2018

Le Mans Prototypes are going to be put through their paces on the Goodwood Motor Circuit for the first time at the 77th Members’ Meeting on the 6/7 April, 2019.

Le Mans Prototypes have appeared in many different guises over their quarter-century in sportscar racing, and the Members’ Meeting will highlight the premier class of prototypes from the turn of the millennium to the present day.

On Saturday night, as dusk falls, some of the most iconic LMP cars and names from the past twenty years will be put through their paces in what is set to be one of the most stunning sights seen at the Motor Circuit in its 70-year history.

“Le Mans Prototypes are some of the fastest racing cars in the world, and some of the most fascinating. What other race has no restriction on engine type and has seen victories for petrol, diesel and hybrid cars in just a quarter of a century?” Said Matt Hearn, Motorsport Content Manager at Goodwood. “We have chosen to run the demo as dusk falls on Saturday, to capture some of that Le Mans magic.”
