It’s known as the biggest British motor race in France, and that looks set to continue this year, with news that spectators will be allowed at the postponed 2020 Le Mans 24 Hours 0n 19-20 September.

Travel packages are still on offer for those desperate to get to the 24-hour race in 2020, with firms able to sell their remaining quantity of allocated tickets for the race.

Here are some of the routes and options available to get you to Le Mans and the crown jewel of endurance racing this season — while stocks last.
