For the first time ever, Sky Sport will be broadcasting Le Mans 24 hours LIVE and in full.

 

Awesome!

Maybe this year the Toyota's will come out on top after last years heartache right at the end.

 

One of the lead Toyota's has smashed the lap record by 2 seconds in qualifying!

I went every year for ten years. It's a great event to go to in person.

I thought all the teams have their drivers all good to go for a while, so the teams are "full". His only chance I thought would be a wildcard by Honda. But I don't know much about Le Mans other than driver line ups are sorted way ahead.

In the olden days when Le Mans was far less commercialised, an English chap in his Bentley was passing through on holiday with his family and decided there and then to enter, with his family sitting on the side watching!

 

Today of course the cars mostly bear no resemblance to the road versions (the race was originally intended as a test of production cars - you even had to do a number of laps with the hood up!) but there was still a rule that they had to have a certain amount of boot space - a rule apparently satisfied by one enterprising team by screwing a biscuit tin down inside and claiming it was a boot...!
