Event>>2009 Le Mans 24 Hours – Follow The Race

As you will be aware, 24 Heures du Mans, to give its correct title is one of the biggest events on the motorsport calendar. To help you follow this weekends event, here is a quick guide to Le Mans coverage.

First off, I have produced another Spotter Guide for Le Mans, in conjunction with Radio Le Mans.com, Ten-Tenths.com and some other partners. The guide is available as a 2 Page PDF and 2 JPEG images. The latest version was released earlier this morning.

You can download the guides at spotterguides.com

The one and only John Brooks, captured by regular Speedhunter contributor, Marshall Pruett, is at the track and will continue to post regularly throughout the event. 

John gives a fantastic insight into the event with some of the best imagery you will ever see.

Radio Le Mans have already started coverage on their website and including tonights six hour practice session. Speedhunter reader, John Hindhuagh (above, gossiping with Dindo Capello) leads the team. The station will cover all the races, build up and will repeat coverage which Europe sleeps for North American listeners. 

If you are lucky enough to go to the event, they will be broadcasting on 92.1 FM. Radio Le Mans will also be broadcasting on Satellite Radio in North America. Sirius Channel 243 and XM Channel 113 and 126.

Television coverage is getting better too. In Europe, Eurosport and, where available, Eurosport2 will be bringing extensive coverage from today. English commentary team is lead by another Speedhunter reader, Martin Haven, complete with Spotter Guide in hand!

In North America, SpeedTV will be covering Le Mans.

They start their coverage on Friday evening with a showing of 'Truth in 24' which we reviewed here. Previously shown on ESPN, this is the first time on Speed and will allow many Canadian Cable viewers to view this film for the first time. Highly recommended viewing. No news of a European release yet (I'll chase that up)

Speed TV will be showing the majority of the race live on Television. When other programming is on, coverage will continue on their website.

That should keep you busy this weekend!

One last thing……Go McNish ;) !

I will be on qualifications tomorow,I hope to see you!!


So... Will it be safe to say that they will have continuous coverage on SpeedTv’s website? I’m without cable and everyone I know thinks I’m crazy for wanting to stay up for the race.


i believe the online feed will only be on when they are off air on TV.

I suggest you keep an eye on Ten-Tenths.com or Midweek Motorsport Collective Facebook group....


if anyone hasn't been able to see truth in 24... it is available for download from the official site.

definitely worth the wait.


and Itunes


i think itunes usa only


any news on australian tv coverage?


Jamin - just looked and it appears that 'ONE' has 12hrs+ of coverage.


i can never get Radio Le Mans to work on a mac. Looked at the source code and something doesnt make sense, but I can never listen to it at work :( Great listening on a PC:)


Here you go mc: will work on mac, iPhone and others...



Is there anywhere at le mans where we can get hold of a spotters guide?
