Hall 3: 100 Years of 24 Hours of Le Mans
24 hours of goose bumps, 24 hours of nerve-wracking excitement, the 24 Hours of Le Mans race – next year, the endurance race on the Sarthe will celebrate its 100th anniversary. From 1st April 2023, to mark this special occasion, the Technik Museum Sinsheim will be dedicating 3,000 m² of exhibition space in the newly designed Hall 3 to the special exhibition "One Hundred Years of 24 Hours of Le Mans". A constantly changing display of around 30 racing cars, dating from the beginnings of the sport to the present day – including a Porsche 919 from 2015, a Lorraine-Dietrich B3-6 from 1926, a Ford GT 40 from 1966 and a Triumph TRS from 1961 – will form the core of the exhibition, which will run until January 2024.
"You don't win Le Mans – Le Mans lets you win." The legend of the 24 Hours race is presented in a unique exhibition about the fascination and history of the long-distance classic. Grouped by decade, the museum displays these important vehicles in racing groups on a specially installed "race track". In the middle of the exhibition, 40 pillars suspended from the ceiling tell exciting stories from the 100 years of the "Grand Prix d'Endurance" for both adults and children with photographs, paintings and texts. The exhibition is decorated on all sides with oversized banners showing watercolours by Le Mans enthusiast Uli Ehret and historical photographs of racing scenes that capture the atmosphere of the race through day and night.
The new special exhibition "Einhundert Jahre 24h von Le Mans" (100 Years of 24 Hours of Le Mans) will be presented in Hall 3 of the Technik Museum Sinsheim from Saturday, 1st April 2023 onwards, and entry is included in the museum's overall admission price. We will still be presenting the previous exhibition, "Red Bull World of Racing", in Hall 3 until 8th January 2023.
