Seeking a new date for the event

The 24 Hours of Le Mans, the opening round of the 2021 FIM World Endurance Championship, scheduled for April 17-18, has been cancelled. The organizers of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, the Automobile Club de l'Ouest, the French Motorcycle Federation (FFM), the International Motorcycle Federation (FIM) and Eurosport Events, promoters of the World Endurance Championship, have decided to cancel the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The decision was taken to cancel the race.

In the wake of the global health scare caused by the new coronavirus outbreak, hospitals in and around Le Mans are currently under considerable strain and unable to take the necessary action to ensure the safety of riders and teams during the race.

Organizers, sports federations, and promoters are already working to determine the new date for the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the 2021 season. An announcement on this matter will be made within the next ten days.
