The archive will boast more than 70 films covering the classic race since 1933. In addition to the rich history of the event, Motorsport.tv will continue to feature future races to ensure an unbroken video record, on a single platform, of Europe’s greatest race.

Motorsport.tv has joined forces with the Le Mans organiser, the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, and three-time Le Mans winner Allan McNish, who will introduce the most iconic editions of the race on both linear and online TV formats.

Marking the start of the partnership, today sees the broadcast of the 1953 edition – featuring the first race completed at average speeds in excess of 100mph, as the factory-entered Jaguar line-up of Tony Rolt & Duncan Hamilton and Stirling Moss & Peter Walker took a stunning 1-2 for the Coventry marque.

“We are delighted that history of 24 Heures du Mans will be made available to Motorsport.tv and Motorsport Network’s incredible global audience,” said ACO president Pierre Fillon. “This is another step using their ever-expanding reach that will help us continue to promote the legend of Le Mans to our growing international fan base.”

Exciting new content

The film archive will provide the basis for a series of new content, including digital shorts that will be available across Motorsport Network’s digital portfolio, including motorsport.com and autosport.com. These will re-examine some of the seminal moments of the history of Le Mans, including ‘Best of’ compilations and re-telling the stories ‘Through the decades’ with insight and retrospective from former racers.

Race highlights, special-hosted episodes and thematic programs will be released on television every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. All the uploaded archive broadcasts can be seen online, anytime, at Motorsport.tv on-demand.

Motorsport.tv is available online and on-demand on OTT web platform, iOS and Android mobile devices, with new distribution via Apple TV and Roku coming shortly.
