Le Mans Circuit de la Sarthe

Since 1923, once a year the public roads and racetrack sections of Le Mans come alive with the roar of race engines for the most revered motorsports event in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. It is, bar none, the fastest racetrack on Earth. Driving Le Mans, a driver will be wide-open throttle 85 percent of a lap. The Mulsanne Straight is 3.7 miles long and prototypes hit speeds in excess of 250 miles per hour before two separate chicanes were added in 1990 to comply with FIA rules requiring straights no longer than 1.2 miles. In 2012, the first of these chicanes was renamed as the “Forza Motorsport Chicane”. Made up of 38 turns over a total of 8.46 miles, Le Mans is one of the longest tracks in the world. The Bugatti Circuit is open year round and is host to a bevy of race events including DTM and Moto GP. You will find both circuits in Forza Motorsport 5, as well as the classic layout with the chicanes removed.
