The 24 hour LeManStravaganza, sponsored by Porsche, will celebrate the third round of the FIA World Endurance Championship by showing the entire 24 Hours of Le Mans from beginning to end. We’re going to make this the best place to watch the race this side of le Sarthe.

Afternoon - A live conversation with racer Marc Miller, who is in the Proton Competition WeatherTech Porsche 911 RSR racing at Le Mans. Timing will depend, of course, on when he’s on the course.

6:30 PM - Automotive Trivia with Raphael Orlove

Late Night - Ice Cream Sundae Bar to keep yourself awake

8:00 AM - Breakfast, End Of Race

Activities & Comfort

We’re not just having events every few hours, there’s going to be a bunch of activities to keep you busy throughout the day. We’ll also have comfort stations and rooms to rest and recharge.

  • Le Mans console simulation racing: Can you set the fastest lap? Win a prize!
  • Virage de Mulsanne: Legos, puzzles, games all with a racing theme.
  • The Pit & The Garage: Recharge your phone and rest your eyes.
  • Snacks and Drinks: Keep yourself fueled for the entire 24 hours

This Is Crazy! What Do I Need To Do?

Not much! All you need to do is RSVP here and then show up. If you want to stay for the full 24 hours you are 100 percent welcome to do so (and there will be a special prize for those that do). If you can only make it for a few of the events, or just one, that’s totally OK.

Please just RSVP so we can make sure we have enough food and drinks.

We’re going to do everything we can to make our guests comfortable, but it’s going to be a loooooong day so we’re OK with those of you staying for a while bringing items you might need for personal support (within reason, please don’t bring a couch).


This is going to be awesome. Can’t wait to see all of you, ask any questions you might have in the comments.
