Scheduling: The 24 Hours of Le Mans

Next weekend, it is the third triple crown event of the year, alongside the Monaco Grand Prix and the Indianapolis 500, as the 24 Hours of Le Mans takes place in southern France at the Circuit de la Sarthe. The festivities, though, run all week culminating in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, live on Eurosport and Eurosport 2. Unfortunately there are multiple channel switches in the 24 hour period, but nevertheless, the full 24 hours are live on either channel.

As noted on his Twitter, Martin Haven is not part of Eurosport’s line up this year, as for the first time he is working with the Audi team. So good luck to Haven with that. Instead, according to Ben Constanduros, we get Carlton Kirby.

I would be lying if I said that I watched the entire 24 Hours, but I do watch the majority of the first few hours until the early evening along with the last six or so hours of action. The Qualifying sessions are also worth a watch as well. Hopefully the last few hours are as exciting as last year!
