The first race of the Le Mans Series 2010 season will be held on the Castellet circuit, in the south of France, on 9, 10 and 11 April. This circuit, at the same time ultra modern and firmly rooted in the history of motor sports which has just reopened its doors to the public, has welcomed the Official Tests of the Series since 2004 and will do so again in 2010 on 7 & 8 March.
For an exceptional race, an exceptional format! The opening of the season will not be done with the usual 1000 Km schema (or 6 hours), but will last 8 hours with a late morning start and an arrival at sunset around 7pm.
Note that this round will award the same number of points as a 6 hour race, only races 50% longer than the usual 1000Km distance count double.
