1932 24 Hours of Le Mans

The 1932 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 10th Grand Prix of Endurance, and took place on 18 and 19 June 1932.

This race saw the shortening of the circuit to nearly 13.5 km following the creation of a new permanent race track between the pit stretch and Mulsanne, creating the famed Dunlop Curve, Esses, and Tetre Rouge. This change was made to keep the race away from the suburbs of Le Mans. The two Dunlop Bridges were also first seen at this race.
