The younger Isada won an exclusive all-expense paid trip to France for his MPSE achievement. After a stop-over in Paris and an unforgettable dinner experience at the Michelin 3-star restaurant “Guy Savoy” at La Monnaie de Paris, Ivan and Vip will witness the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours on June 13-14 at the Circuit De La Sarthe at Le Mans. Their experience will include a helicopter ride over the track and a private guided tour of the paddock.
The Le Mans 24 Hours is the world’s oldest active sports car race in endurance racing, held annually since 1923. This year over 250,000 spectators are expected to troop to the circuit. Michelin is a partner of Le Mans 24H 2015, and since June 2014, Michelin has succeeded in claiming a 17th straight Le Mans 24 Hours win, totaling 23 victories for the brand.
