|Le Mans Test Day|
| Although the regulations for the Le Mans Test Day stipulate April 30 (2000!) as the date, it is believed that the actual Test Day will take place on May 6 2001, as planned.|
There will be two sessions:
09.00 – 13.00
14.00 – 18.00
All “pre-admitted” competitors and those selected by the selection committee will run together on the track – there is no division of track time among the classes.
Scrutineering takes place on Friday and Saturday, May 4 /5. More than 48 cars will be invited to the Test Day, but as soon as the preliminary practice sessions are over, 48 cars will be selected for the race. Lap times will be issued.
Jacky Ickx is the race director, for the Test Day and the actual 24 Hours.
