The Le Mans 24 Hours round of the 2019/2020 FIM Endurance World Championship (EWC) has been rescheduled for a second time, and will now take place on 29-30 August.

The event was initially postponed to 5-6 September 2020 due to the coronavirus outbreak, however the date left little time for the venue to organise the 24 Heures du Mans, which has also been postponed to 19-20 September.

In order to give the ACO sufficient leeway to organize these two major events within a short span of time, the club and FIM EWC promoter Eurosport Events have decided to bring the dates of the 43rd edition of the 24 Heures Motos forward to August.

The FIM, Eurosport Events and ACO’s priority is to ensure the safety of spectators, teams, competitors and all the people involved in organizing the event, as well as high-quality events. These measures have been adopted in response to the unprecedented situation of the fight against coronavirus.
