Ashen is a heavy metal outfit with unmistakeable rock influences, sure to put on a high-octane performance at the 24H Motos. The band came together in 2021 and it quickly became a cathartic outlet for its members, inspiring them to embrace a multi-faceted, introspective persona. Trauma, fear and anxiety fuel their creativity. With each new release, the band is transformed, both musically and visually, assuming a new identity and introducing new characters. At Le Mans, Ashen will showcase their first EP, soon to be released on the Out of Line Music label.



Little Odetta’s roots reach back to the giants of ’60s and ’70s rock such as Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix and The Doors, as well as the big names of Afro-American rhythm’n’blues, like Aretha Franklin and State James. The band’s five members serve up a feisty kind of rock propelled by a powerful beat and a resounding melody, at times fused with a more ambient style that overlaps layers of organ sounds and guitar reverb to let the vocals shine.


The Jim Jones All STARS is the new band starring Jim Jones, leader of Thee Hypnotics, The Jim Jones Revue and Jim Jones & The Righteous Mind. Nothing can stop Jones in his relentless pursuit of rock’n’roll’s holy grail! With The Righteous Mind put on hold during lockdown, Jim Jones formed the All Stars for a chance to get back up on stage and rekindle his passion by delving into his earliest sources of inspiration. Joined by Gavin Jay and Elliot Mortimer of The Jim Jones Revue, the band features two saxophonists and delivers a range of irresistible rock’n’roll riffs combined with blistering soul power.

Entertainment for all

An awesome experience awaits racegoers at this year’s 24H Motos, courtesy of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest’s outstanding programme of free entertainment.


This is THE place to be for spectators at the 24H Motos. Easy to spot within the circuit, the Fan Zone includes simulators, an immersive game to test your reflexes (Batak), a chance to try out electric motorbike handlebars, and huge screens so you don’t miss a minute of the race. Children aged 3 to 12 can also join in the fun in their own special area: the Kid Zone. They’ll have a blast on the mini-motorbike simulators, the bouncy castle, the climbing wall and more!


Head here when you’re ready for a break. Just like the drivers who need to rest between stints, you can take some time out in the Relax Zone, where you’ll find a barber, hairdresser, nail technician and masseur.
