    Fan Activities Galore in Store for 20th Anniversary Motul Petit Le Mans
    In celebration of the 20th anniversary of the famed Motul Petit Le Mans, Road Atlanta will offer a multitude of new fan activities at this year's event to support the wheel-to-wheel racing action on track, October 4 - 7.

    In honor of the 20th anniversary of Motul Petit Le Mans and in paying homage to the race's roots at Le Mans, a 90-foot tall Ferris Wheel will be erected within the Fan Zone so that guests can take in the views of the race track. Families can enjoy the full-size gondolas on the way up to the very top, which will showcase a good portion of the track and will light up at night.

    In addition to the spectacular new interactive displays in
    the Fan Zone, Zac Brown's Southern Ground will be hosting a tailgate, which will include a four-day party in the Fan Zone. The famous "Cookie" party zone will be set up starting Wednesday of race week with yard games, live entertainment, music, inspired food choices, merchandise and a low-country boil to kick off the event.

    Fans interested in the history of Petit Le Mans will be in for a special treat this year, as they can see race cars from the past on exhibit in the 20th Anniversary Celebration Tent in the Fan Zone.

    On Friday evening after the band at Zac Brown's Southern Ground plays their last notes, fans can catch one of the most iconic racing movies of all time, Le Mans, playing on the big screens at Spectator Hill and the Turn 10 terrace seating. Free snacks will be available to all guests.

    The IndyCar star and 2014 Indy 500 winner will join brothers Ricky and Jordan Taylor win the seat of the No. 10 Konica Minolta Cadillac at the 20th Anniversary Motul Petit Le Mans, having run with the team previously at the 2013 24 Hours of Daytona, where the team finished second.

    Currently, Wayne Taylor Racing is leading the IMSA WeatherTech SportsCar Championship prototype points, so there will be a lot on the line as the team takes the green flag on October 7th.
