Last year, Auto Mentality staff had to beg the manager of a sports bar to put the iconic race on just one of his TVs while we pecked out an article about limited edition B.R.M Corvette Racing watches (“Own A Piece Of Me Mans”). Halfway through the article, and the meal, he changed it to something completely forgettable. Luckily this year, D.C. area Le Mans enthusiasts won’t have that problem.
Our friends at Aston Martin Washington D.C., Bentley Tysons, and Exclusive Automotive Group are setting up a giant outdoor “Jumbotron” Saturday, June 16th to celebrate the 24 Hours Of Le Mans. Festivities begin at race start – 9 AM at the dealership – 8550 Leesburg Pike in Vienna. Food and refreshments will be served. The event is free, and it runs all day until 7 PM.
Finally, a good way to spend time with fellow race fans, watch the race and take a peek at some of the incredible vehicles on their lot.
Last year, Aston Martin took to the podium. This year, the all-new Vantage GTE makes its debut. It should be an exciting race.
