Get ready for this weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans with a little help from Hagerty
When the green flag drops at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this Saturday, September 19, at 2:30 p.m. local time (8:30 a.m. ET), it will be just the fourth time in the history of the legendary race that it has been held outside of the month of June. Hagerty is proud to announce that we will be the title sponsor for the Radio Le Mans broadcast of the fabled endurance race, and we are putting together special events and coverage to help fans enjoy the experience before, during, and after the race itself. The Radio Le Mans broadcast will air on various FM and satellite radio channels, as well as at www.radiolemans.co.
In addition to joining up with Radio Le Mans, in the run-up to the race, Hagerty will be hosting a contest on our community site. We’ll be posting Le Mans trivia questions, and community members will be able to submit their answers. Members who provide the correct answers will have their names entered into a random drawing to win the same “Hagerty Radio Le Mans” official polos as those worn by John Hindhaugh, the “voice of Le Mans,” and the rest of the Hagerty Radio Le Mans staff.
During the broadcast, CEO McKeel Hagerty will talk with Hindhaugh about motorsports and our focus on saving driving for future generations. “Le Mans is one of the biggest motorsports events of the year, and Radio Le Mans brings it to the people,” notes Hagerty. “With the grandstands around the Circuit de la Sarthe empty this year due to COVID-19, Radio Le Mans is more critical than ever.”
After the race, on Monday, September 21, Hindhaugh will host a new race recap, The 25th Hour. With 30-plus years as the voice of Le Mans, Hindhaugh is an indelible part of the race’s history. Tune in at Hagerty.com/live at 1 p.m. ET to listen to the recap of the race’s best moments and to hear perspectives from the 2020 Le Mans champions that are available nowhere else.
All in all, this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans is set to be unlike any 24 Hours before it. We look forward to you joining us in making it a memorable one!
