The moment you’ve all been waiting for: the MotoGP™ Monster Energy Grand Prix De France at the world famous Le Mans Bugatti Circuit! The Le Mans circuit is a legend all of its own, which is why the Le Mans MotoGP is one of the most popular events and venues on the 2014 calendar. Not to mention, it is only 125 miles from PARIS! Can you say Oui Oui!


For starters, the Le Mans Bugatti Grand Prix Circuit was built in 1965, around the existing 24-Hour track, hence where the name originates from. The venue has hosted many grand’s prix since the late sixties. However after a serious accident to Spanish rider Alberto Puig in 1995, the MotoGP Association decided to postpone races while improvements were being made to the circuit. 

Spectators, meaning YOU –because YOU WILL be there –will notice right away that the track is very, very tight. Riders will have to use first gear more often than on other tracks. You can expect full time breaking along with constant acceleration battles.
