The museum announced today that, through special arrangements with the ACO, it will again be showing the entire 24 hours of competition on June 17 starting at 7 a.m. through June 18 at 10:30 a.m. – one of only three places in the world where you can watch a commercial-free, direct feed of the entire race, Berlin and Tokyo being the other two cities!
All the action will be shown on the giant 28-foot screen in the Chevrolet Theater at the NCM, along with lots of extras thrown in for guests.
The 24 Hours of Le Mans, of course, is the crown jewel of the FIA/World Endurance Championship, and the 85th edition will get underway on Saturday, June 17.
There will be live timing and scoring, refreshments during the entire 24 hours, plus private Skypes from the Corvette Racing team and even door prizes.
“We think this will be the next best thing to being there yourself!” a museum spokesman said.
The theater has limited space, so pre-registration as early as possible is strongly suggested.
Cost is $100 per person and will include 24-hour opening of the museum’s theater for viewing, early opening of the museum on Saturday, June 17, continental breakfast Saturday and full breakfast Sunday, pasta dinner Saturday evening, midnight ice cream bar, cash bar open Saturday from 5:15 p.m. to 7 p.m., snacks and refreshments provided all 24 hours, and hourly drawings for signed race team hero cars (must be registered participant and present to win).
Security will cover the front grass circle entrance door (parking lot A entrance) from 5 pm to 8 a.m. so you are free to come and go at your leisure. RV parking is allowed in the truck parking lot for this event only. Bring in your sleeping bags, blankets, pillows, etc. for an all night stay in the NCM. All activities are open to Event Registrants only.
Registration is already open at www.corvettemuseum.org so we recommend you get on the ball now and sign up. You can also register by calling 1-800-53-VETTE.
