If you would love to see the action at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in France but don’t have a ticket, then the National Corvette Museum is coming to the rescue again as it hosts the 2019 NCM Le Mans Viewing Party.
The museum announces that, through special arrangements with the ACO, it will again be showing the entire 24 hours of competition on Saturday, June 15 starting at 7 a.m. through Sunday, June 16 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, with live timing and scoring, refreshments during the entire 24 hours, private Skypes from the Corvette Racing team, and door prizes (must be registered participant and present to win).
“We think this will be the next best thing to being there yourself!” an NCM spokesman said.
The 24 Hours of Le Mans, of course, is the crown jewel of the FIA/World Endurance Championship, and the 87th edition will get underway on Saturday, June 15. The theater has limited space, so pre-registration as early as possible is strongly suggested.
Registration for this event is $150 per person and will include 24-hour opening of the NCM’s Theater for viewing purposes; access to view the race in the NCM Conference Center; early opening of NCM on Saturday, June 15; and continental breakfast Saturday, lunch and dinner provided on Saturday, ice cream bar on Saturday evening, and breakfast on Sunday morning.
A cash bar will be open Saturday from 5:15 p.m. to 8 p.m., and snacks and refreshments will be provided
Security will cover the front grass circle entrance door (parking lot A entrance) from 5 p.m. 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.
