-Le Mans lasts much longer than just 24 hours, from a spectator’s point of view it is actually a full week which offers lots of events which are worth a watch. The traditional opening of the race week used to be the Monday prior to the race when the administrative checking & scrutineering started, this is already a major event in its own right. In a move to attract more spectators, it has this year been brought forward to the Sunday for the first time Some people see this scrutineering, which is basically a technical inspection of the cars, driver’s suits and helmets more as a ceremony than a function.  However, since the demise of the old practice weekend in May, it has become much more serious for the teams - in fact in 2009, one team was disqualified even at this late stage for a car which didn't conform to the regulations.+Le Mans lasts much longer than just 24 hours, from a spectator’s point of view it is actually a full week which offers lots of events which are worth a watch.

-It is usually held in central Le Mans on the “„Quinconce des Jacobins“”, which is the area across the street from the city's old cathedral, giving race fans an ideal opportunity to see the drivers and the cars at close range. However, due to extensive works the precise location was still unconfirmed at the time of going to press.  It may once again be in its usual home or if not, in the "Place du Jet d'Eau", immediately below the cathedral. Both are close together but beware, as parking is much more restricted than in previous years. If in doubt - leave your car at the circuit and take the tram. It is this unique event which gets everyone in the mood, ok, some team bosses and drivers are probably not happy that they have to drag everything including themselves into cetral Le Mans, but for the race fans it is well worth a visit, at least once. One after another, the teams are certified to run according to the A.C.O.'s regulations, see below for a detailed schedule when each team is being checked:+It is to be held in the "Place Centrale des Jacobins," below the cathedral.
