Track work continues at Circuit de la Sarthe, with the addition of an additional gravel trap and barriers ahead of this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans. (En Français)
Following the widening of the pavement between Mulsanne Corner and Porsche Curves, further work has been completed at the first Porsche curve, connecting the D139 motorway and the circuit, which sees the addition of a large gravel trap.
SAFER barriers, meanwhile, have been added to the right side of the corner, with the straight having been resurfaced.
A number of other circuit improvements are expected over the course of the next two years, with the local government recently approving the construction of a new public road that will bypass the Indianapolis and Arnage corners, which would be used for the racing only.
