Le Mans exhibition at Porsche Museum
Porsche is synonymous with Le Mans so it is fitting that, as part of the run up to Stuttgart’s return to La Sarthe with the 919 Hybrid, the Porsche Museum is housing a special exhibition celebrating their involvement in the famous French 24-hour race.
Running between 26 March and 13 July 2014, “24 Hours for Eternity: Le Mans” (featuring the Porsche 919 Hybrid LMP1 car prominently) will take visitors on a trip through Weissach’s Le Mans history via recreations of track sections, such as the famous Hunaudières straight.
As well as some of the cars that helped Porsche achieve 16 overall victories, the display will also feature numerous Porsche Le Mans racers of historic significance, such as the Porsche 911 3.0 RSR, and a 911 GT2 Le Mans.
The exhibition will be open for more than 24 hours on the weekend of the 2014 24 Hours of Le Mans, with the museum open to visitors for free so that they can watch the race on monitors around the building.
Other than 14 June to 15 June, the Porsche Museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday between 9:00am and 6:00pm. Admission costs eight euros for adults, with concessions priced at four euros.
