The exhibition traces the history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, which began in 1923. Displayed in the form of the 1920s and 1930s, the 1960s was the period of conflict between Ferrari and Ford, the strength of Porsche since the 1970s, and the strength Audi in the 2000s.

Announced a hydrogen class that HICE (Hydrogen Internal Combustion Engine) can participate in.
