The 2021 edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans has been postponed to Aug. 21-22, race organizer the Automobile Club de l’Ouest announced on Thursday.

The 89th edition of the renowned endurance event was due to take place on June 12-13 with an official test day one week beforehand, but will now be held 10 weeks later in a bid to ensure spectators can attend amid the coronavirus pandemic.
