Road Atlanta’s Motul Petit Le Mans Begins October 4, 2017

People around the world know more about Road Atlanta than most of us in Hall County and North Georgia, it seems.

Zillions of race fans (maybe more) are looking forward to the 20th Anniversary Motul Petit Le Mans that kicks off on Wednesday, October 4, 2017 for four days of non-stop action.

Come see some of the galaxy’s fastest cars zip around the turns on the 2.54 mile track at Road Atlanta.

Not into racing?  Come for the people watching, the food and the roar of the engines from Corvette, Porsche, Ferrari, Lamborghini, Mercedes, Lexus, Acura, BMW and Ford race cars.

As Road Atlanta and IMSA celebrate the 20th anniversary of this world-famous endurance race, join us for all-new fan activities, including taking a ride on a 90-foot tall Le Mans-style Ferris Wheel, with great views of the track.

The Fan Zone will also feature live music and a kickoff party at Zac Brown’s Southern Ground tailgate and a 20th Anniversary Celebration Tent, and guests can catch Le Mans playing on Friday night at Spectator Hill and Turn 10.
