The RaceThe 24 Heures du Mans brings up its 87th edition this year, and is the holy grail of endurance motor racing. After its first running in 1923, the course and cars have evolved to become the premier event in the World Endurance Championship, and the event is recognised as the most prestigious test for innovations in motorsport technology. Technologies such as disk and air brakes, streamlined bodywork, and a variety of engine configurations were trialled and tested at the 24 hours of Le Mans. The Mazda 787b (oh god listen to that sound!) was the first, and so far only car to win running a Wankel Rotary engine, winning in 1991. Audi brought diesel engines their first success in 2006 with the R10 TDI, and then brought Hybrid technology to victory for the first time in 2012 with the R18 e-tron Quattro.

Finally, check out the fastest ever lap in the Circuit de la Sarthe: Kamui Kobayashi's 3:14.791 in 2017 Q2
The Dunlop Bridge
The iconic Dunlop Bridge has been a part of the Le Mans track since 1932, making it the oldest Dunlop Bridge at any track. This part of the track requires a good launch out of the first chicane before cresting the brow of the hill, and plunging through the esses out onto the Mulsanne straight. As the LMP cars are much more maneuverable, caution must be taken passing the slower GT traffic, as Allan McNish discovered in 2011.
Tertre Rouge is the corner that launches the cars onto the long Mulsanne straight. Maintaining momentum through this corner as it opens on exit is imperative to ensure maximum straight line speed heading down the first part of the Mulsanne. The undulation in the road makes for fantastic viewing at night, with some magic images of the Porsches throwing up sparks on the exit in 2014. Finally, this was the location of Allan Simonsen’s fatal crash in mixed conditions in the 2013 Le Mans. The Danish flags will fly at the corner in his memory.
After the incredibly long Mulsanne straight, the Mulsanne corner nowadays features a subtle right hand kink before the tight 90 degree turn. Here, the cars decelerate from 340 km/h down to below 100 km/h, resulting in a brilliant opportunity to overtake. Again, care must be taken overtaking slower traffic; unaware drivers have caught out faster cars attempting to pass through the kink, such as Anthony Davidson’s spectacular crash in 2012 resulting in a broken vertebra for Davidson.
Indianapolis and Arnage
The Indanapolis and Arnage complex is one of the most committed areas of the track. Hurtling down the hill from the Mulsanne Corner, the road suddenly bends to the right, a corner which only the bravest prototype drivers take flat out, followed by a beautifully cambered open left hander taken in third gear. A short sprint leads the cars into Arnage, the slowest point on the track. The tight right hander was the scene of heartbreak for Toyota in 2014 when the leading #7 broke down and had to be retired after an FIA sensor melted and shut off the electronics. Kazuki Nakajiima was unable to make it to the pits, leaving him stranded on the circuit.
The Porsche Curves
High speed and with barely any run off, the Porsche Curves is the most committed part of the lap. Getting caught behind GT traffic in this section can mean losing phenomenal amounts of time. This was the site of Loic Duval’s horrific crash in practice for the 2014 event. Keeping momentum through the flowing right-left-right handers that lead into Maison Blanche requires 100% commitment and ultimate precision, with severe punishment for getting it wrong.
The Ford Chicanes
The final chapter in the 13.6km rollercoaster that is Le Mans is the Ford Chicanes. Two tight left-right handers with massive kerbs are all that separates the driver from the finish line. Watching the cars bounce over the kerbs in beautiful slow motion is certainly something to behold, but 24 hours of mistreatment can lead to suspension and steering issues. The drivers have to be attentive until the very end, lest they throw it all away in the last minutes of the race. This year, it’s expected that the LMP1 teams will have to flawlessly navigate the circuit almost 400 times during the 24 hours of racing.
The ClassesThe WEC consists of four classes on track at once, resulting in four separate races on track each in their own battle for 24 Hours. The classes are split by car type into Prototype and GT, and then further into Pro and Amateur. Each class has it's own set of regulations, driver requirements, and relevance for the Le Mans event
LMP1 is the top class of Sportscars, and features the fastest prototype closed top race cars. The cars rival F1 cars in terms of performance and lap times, and are capable of lapping the Le Mans circuit in around 3:20. The cars in this class are built specifically for endurance racing, and are limited by both instantaneous and average fuel flow, to put the focus of the class onto development of efficiency. This year, Toyota is the only OEM manufacturer, with 4 privateer teams bringing along three different chassis to take a shot at the overall victory. As Toyota's car is a hybrid, and the privateer cars are not, the different types of car have to be balanced by a process called "Equivalence of Technology", or EoT. For more information on how EoT is calculated and applied, check out this article on the Le Mans website
The second prototype class is LMP2, and provides an excellent platform for endurance racing on a budget. The LMP2 class features a spec drivetrain and gearbox, using a Gibson V8 producing 600hp, and a selection of three chassis to choose from (well four really but we don't talk about Riley). This ensures that the competition in the class is very tight, and often comes down to the drivers and the teams performance instead of just having the best car. The LMP2 category is only just a step down from LMP1, with rivalling top speeds, and can lap in around 3:30.
LMP2 is the first class that must feature amateur rated drivers. The Amateurs must drive for a minimum of 6 hours in the car over the course of the race. This means that there's an element of strategy of when to use your amateur driver throughout the race, as the amateur driver is generally slower than the Pros. The pro drivers in this class range from up and coming talent, former F1 drivers, and some of the best sportscar pilots in the world, and with 20 cars in this class, LMP2 is sure to be a hotbed of action over the 24 hours.
GT class cars are cars that are derived from production models, and feature some of the most iconic cars and brands battling it out at the top of the field. The GTE spec cars are the top class of GT racing worldwide, and with 17 cars in this class in a 6 way manufacturer melee this class is sure to be entertaining over the course of the race. The GTE cars are on the border of aero dependency, and can lap Le Mans in around 3:50
This year, the BMW M8 and the Ford GT will make their factory team swansong appearances, against continuing programs from Porsche, Aston Martin, Ferrari and Chevrolet. The GTE-Pro class features all-pro line ups, resulting in some of the best drivers in the world racing in some of the most prestigious hardware that racing has to offer.
The GT classes feature a range of different cars and configurations, and to equalise each of these against each other, the class goes through a process called 'Balance of Performance' or BoP. The organisers can adjust each individual car's weight, fuel tank, air restrictor, turbo boost pressures, and aero performance to alter performance levels to enable the different cars to race competitively. This can sometimes be contentious as every team will feel hard done by, but it is a necessary evil to having the variety of cars on the grid.
Like GTE-Pro, GTE-Am features the same GT cars derived from production models. There are two major differences between GTE-Pro and GTE-Am. Firstly, as the name implies, GTE-Am must feature two amateur drivers per car; one rated Silver and the other rated Bronze. Additionally, the specifications of GTE-Am cars are a season behind the GTE-Pro category. This means that the new Aston Martin Vantage, introduced to WEC competition at the beginning of the 2018/2019 super season, is not yet eligible for GTE-Am competition. However, the Porsche 911 RSR, which entered WEC competition in 2017, is.
With two amateur drivers, all of a sudden the strategy considerations multiply. Additionally, the variety of Pro drivers in this class range from ex-F1 talent to brand new drivers to the Endurance Sportscar scene. While GTE-Am might be the class focussed on the least over the course of the race, the stories that come from this class are phenomenal, and it's well worth following.
The LegendsPart of the allure of the Le Mans 24 Hours is the history, and the legends steeped in history over the course of it's 85 previous editions. The race has had many headline battles in it's history - periods of time where two or three teams went toe to toe for years, with the drivers, cars, and brands embroiled in these battles given the chance to elevate themselves above the rest, and show their prowess.
This year at /WEC, we’ve taken our normal Le Mans Legends celebrations to a new level; each week, members of the community have been writing reviews on some of the closest, most fascinating finishes in Le Mans history! You can check out these reports below!

Speed 6, who won 5 of the first 7 races. Cars were separated into classes by their engine displacement, and the overall winner was based on distance covered. If two cars had finished with the same number of laps, the car with the smaller displacement was declared the winner. The race wasn't run during the second world war, and comparatively very little information is available on the stories of the early days of Le Mans.
After the second world war, teams such as Jaguar, Ferrari, Mercedes, and Aston Martin became the dominant teams. This era featured the legendary Jaguar D type, the Mercedes Benz 300 SLR, the Ferrari 250 Testa Rossa, and the Aston Martin DBR1. Jaguar won 5 times between 1951 and 1957, followed by an era of Ferrari dominance. Drivers such as Mike Hawthorn, Stirling Moss, Juan Manuel Fangio, and John Fitch became household names as Le Mans became a battle between German engineering and British "garagistas".
Ferrari and Ford was the story of the 60's, with Ferrari winning 6 times straight before won four in a row with the GT40 Mk II, taking their first win in 1966. The story of their rivalry is legendary in it's own right - Henry Ford had almost successfully bought out the Ferrari motor company, only to be knocked back by Enzo himself at the 11th hour. In retaliation, Ford planned to hurt Ferrari where it mattered most; on the track. The Ford GT40 was so comprehensively dominant that it won the 1966 edition 21 laps ahead of the next car back - a Porsche 906/6. None of the Ferrari 330P3's finished the race. This battle gave drivers like Bruce Mclaren, Dan Gurney, and Jacky Ickx their first Le Mans victories, and propelled them to the forefront of motorsport stardom at the height of motorsport's popularity.
The 1970's saw the dawn of Porsche, with the 917k taking the brand's first win in 1970, with the same car winning the following year in the hands of Helmut Marko (yes, that Helmut Marko). It would be 5 years before Porsche would win again, with Maatra taking 3 victories in the interim, each at the hands of Henri Pescarolo. Porsche returned with the 936 and the 956/962c dominating the race for the next 20 years. In fact, from 1970, Porsche won 12 times in 18 events, including 7 in a row, and they miiight have been a bit cheeky about it. Amongst these 12 wins, there were 4 for both Jacky Ickx and Derek Bell, and two for IMSA legend Hurley Haywood, as well as the first win for the Joest team in 1984. This era coincided with the introduction, and subsequent destruction of the Group C sportscar formula, widely regarded as the best Sportscar championship regulations of all time. Porsche’s dominance was eventually ended by Jaguar in the XJR-9LM, at the height of Group C’s magic. Ickx's 6 wins at this stage had earned him the nickname 'Mister Le Mans', a fitting title for one of the best drivers in the world at the time.
GT cars became a force to be reckoned with at the end of the Group C era, with classes being split into LMGTP and LMP. McLaren and Porsche had wins in GTP cars, in the F1 GTR and the 911 GT1 respectively, while Porsche, BMW and Peugeot scored LMP wins. 1997 saw the first win for Tom Kristensen, while the following year Allan McNish took his first victory, starting their journeys into the legend books of Le Mans.
The 2000’s ushered in the era of Audi, with all 13 of their wins coming since the turn of the century. GTP was disbanded due to safety issues, being replaced by GT1 and GT2. Audi picked up wins in the R8, the R10, the R15, and the R18, often dominating the might of the Peugeot 908. Audi's dominance elevated not only their drivers to legend status, but also their team managers, car designers, and race engineers. People like Reinhold Joest (team manager), Dr Wolfgang Ullrich (Audisport director), Ulrich Baretzky (engine designer), Leena Gade, Howden Haynes (race engineers) behind the wall and Allan McNish, Tom Kristensen, Rinaldo Capello, Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer and Benoit Treluyer have become household names in the sport not only for their wins, but their longevity and domination. Audi's dominance was only broken by a win for Bentley in 2003, running basically an Audi under a British racing green skin, and Peugeot in 2009, before being ended for good by Porsche in 2015.
Between 2015 and 2017, Porsche added to their victories, now holding a record 19 overall victories at the Circuit de la Sarthe. Audi trail with 13, with Ferrari, Jaguar and Bentley holding the next three positions. Toyota finally took their first overall victory last year, and will be looking to go back to back. Tom Kristensen is has the most victories at Le Mans, with 9 overall victories over his career with Porsche, Audi and Bentley, inheriting the title of Mr Le Mans.

Thursday Fact File - Interlagos and the Brazilian Grand Prix
In 1926 a small area of land was purchased to make way for building accommodations. Then the Wall Street Crash happened. Then they built a circuit.
Autodrome Jose Carlos Pace aka Interlagos.
A good name for a racing driver, Pace (pronounced "pa-chay" (thanks mulsanne) was a Brazilian F1 driver and in 72 races managed to get just one win. This win took place at Interlagos in 1975 where two Brazilians came first and second, and so the circuit was named after him. (The circuit was previously named "Interlagos" or "between lakes" as the circuit was actually between two artificial lakes.). It was not until 1986 that Senna and Piquet came 1st and 2nd at Interlagos. In recent years, Felipe Massa has been the only Brazilian to win the race since Ayrton Senna in 1993.
The track is also infamous for its wet races in recent years but only since 2004 has the race itself been held at the end of the calendar. It's also infamous for it's wet races (courtesy of sry_not4sale):
- 2012: Wet
- 2011: Dry
- 2010: Dry
- 2009: Wet
- 2008: Wet
- 2007: Wet
- 2006: Dry
- 2005: Dry
- 2004: Wet
- 2003: Wet
In 1980, after almost 50 years of the circuit holding its original layout, the track was changed to suit safety measures after complaints from the drivers to reduce the bumpiness. It was not until 1990 that F1 returned to the track. this was then followed some 35 years later in 2007 when the entire surface of the track was replaced. Just last year, they announced they were relocating the pit lane, adding new run off areas and building a brand new pit building.
In recent years, Brazil has become the site of famous championship ending races, including Hamilton's last corner victory, and the dramatic end to last season's race.
In 2001, Montoya burst onto the racing scene himself as a rookie, in just his third ever race, he passed Michael Schumacher down the insider of the Senna S's and pulled away, leadin for most of the race before eventually colliding with an Arrows and Coulthard took the win. BBC did a great piece with Murray Walker on this race here.
In 2003, there was huge collision with Alonso and Webber, which was one of the worst seen in years.
Last year, the title battle came down to the wire, with Vettel needing to finish lower than 7th and Alonso in a podium position. Vettel qualified in 4th and Alonso sat in 8th after qualifying. After a first lap collision with the homeboy Bruno Senna, Sebastian Vettel was facing the wrong way with light side pod damage. He reluctantly battle on, as Alonso fought his way into the places needed with a stunning overtake on his teammate Massa and Webber. As the rain came down, teams gambled on the conditions and chose which tyres to go out on, as Vettel steadily made his way back into contention. As the leaders switched places, it eventually fell to Button, and when Di Resta crashed and brought out the safety car. Alonso had managed a superb 2nd place, but Vettel was in 6th, thanks to the help from Schumacher. Raikkonen also got lost. After 77 laps, they were carried over the line under safety car and Vettel claimed his third title, with Alonso just points behind. This race has since been considered one of the best ever.
It you want to see mroe on that race, there is a great version of the first two dramatic laps here and the full onboard race can been seen here.
The fastest lap held at Interlagos is Juan Pablo Montoya, with a stunning 1.11.473.
The race has a become a true fan favourite. It's quick, slippery and always brings out one of the best races of the season. It's on BBC and Sky this week for UK viewers, or you can hit up a stream and discuss the sessions on here. Enjoy.
EDIT: FACTS FROM FORMULA1.COM
Did you know that Sao Paulo boasts the second shortest track on the calendar, or that five Brazilian racers have been victorious on home soil? Ahead of the Formula 1 Grande Premio Petrobras do Brasil 2013, we bring you some of the most interesting facts and figures about the race…
• This year’s race is the 41st in Brazilian Grand Prix history. Of the previous 40, 30 have been held at Interlagos and 10 at Jacarepagua in Rio de Janiero.
• The Interlagos circuit is also known as the Autodromo Jose Carlos Pace in honour of 1973 race winner Carlos Pace. Read all about his emotional win here.
• The inaugural Brazilian Grand Prix was held at Interlagos in February 1973. Appropriately enough the race was won by a Brazilian - Emerson Fittipaldi in a Lotus.
• The original Interlagos layout was 7.960 kilometres long. Since 1990 the race has been run on the shortened version of the circuit which is, after one or two adjustments, now 4.309 kilometres long. That makes it the second shortest circuit on the calendar after Monaco.
• Interlagos is one of five completely anticlockwise circuits on the 2013 calendar (The others are Singapore, Korea, Abu Dhabi and the United States (with its figure of eight layout, you could argue that Suzuka runs both clockwise and anticlockwise).
• Brazil has produced 30 drivers who have started at least one Grand Prix. Of the 30, three have won the drivers’ title (Emerson Fittipaldi, Nelson Piquet, Ayrton Senna) and six (or 20 percent) have won races (Fittipaldi, Senna, Piquet, Carlos Pace, Rubens Barrichello and Felipe Massa). Rubens Barrichello is the only one of the six Brazilian race winners not to have won his home Grand Prix.
• All five of the world champions that have competed in the 2013 season - Fernando Alonso, Kimi Raikkonen, Lewis Hamilton, Jenson Button and Sebastian Vettel - have clinched the title in Brazil (in Vettel’s case, he’s also done so in Abu Dhabi, Japan and India).
• Alain Prost is the most successful driver in Brazilian Grand Prix history, having won six races in the country. Of the current grid, Felipe Massa and Mark Webber each have two wins at Interlagos; Kimi Raikkonen, Sebastian Vettel and Jenson Button all have one.
• Both Lewis Hamilton and Fernando Alonso are yet to win in Brazil. Both men clinched their world championship(s) in Brazil and in Alonso’s case he has stood on the Interlagos podium seven times in total. The only other venues on the calendar that the Spaniard has not won at are Austin, Yas Marina, Spa-Francorchamps and New Delhi. For Hamilton it’s Kuala Lumpur, Sakhir, Barcelona, Yeongam and Suzuka.
• In terms of manufacturers, McLaren have the most wins in Brazil with 12 to Ferrari’s 10, although Red Bull have won three of the last four races at Interlagos.
• Ayrton Senna holds the record for most Brazilian Grand Prix pole positions with six, including four in a row from 1988 to 1991. Brazil’s current top driver, Felipe Massa, has the most of the active drivers with three.
• Massa has led the most laps of any current driver in Brazil - 183 in total. That puts him behind only Michael Schumacher (236) and Alain Prost (235) in terms of laps led in Brazil.
• In the 40 previous Brazilian Grands Prix, the pole position holder has won just 11 times (27.5 percent). Looking specifically at Interlagos, things are slightly better for the polesitter - the record is 10 wins from pole in 30 races (33 percent).
• The furthest back any driver has won from at Interlagos is eighth. That was in the controversial 2003 race which was (eventually) won by Giancarlo Fisichella after red flags ended the race prematurely. Fisichella had originally been awarded second place, but several days later - after reviewing timing data - race officials declared the Italian the winner on countback. Kimi Raikkonen - who'd orginally been declared the winner - presented Fischella with his trophy at the following race in San Marino.
• The United States Grand Prix was Jenson Button’s 246th Grand Prix, drawing him level with David Coulthard for the most Grands Prix by a British driver. Button will make the record his own in Brazil.
• At the last round in Austin, Vettel took his eighth consecutive victory and his 12th overall this season. If he wins in Brazil he’ll equal Michael Schumacher’s record of 13 victories in one season, set in 2004.
• The lap record for Interlagos is held by Colombian F1 hero Juan Pablo Montoya. It stands at 1m 11.473s and was set in 2004 when Montoya drove for Williams.
• Of the last ten races in Brazil, seven have featured the safety car. Across those seven races the safety car was deployed 12 times.
• According to Mercedes, the drivers are on full throttle for 70 percent of the lap distance. The longest time at full throttle is 16 seconds from the exit of Juncao (Turn 12) to Turn 1. Drivers make an average of 42 gear changes per lap, which equates to 2,982 gear changes over the 71-lap race.
