Despite the race being organised behind closed doors, with specific protocols due to the health restrictions, the 43rd edition of the 24 Heures Motos held on 29 and 30 August at Le Mans attracted a slew of Endurance fans throughout the race weekend.

Broadcasted live across 5 continents by Eurosport’s network and licensees’ channels, the 24 Heures Motos – 3rd round of 2019-2020 season of the FIM Endurance World Championship – attracted a very sizeable audience.
