Le Mans 2019 Grid.jpg

The Le Mans 24 Hours begins in just under six days time - who's excited?


The biggest race of the motorsport year. The ultimate test of man and machine. A perfect reason to ensue the wife and kids leave you alone for a full day - Le Mans is fast approaching!

24 hours of flat out driving in four categories of endurance racing machines, Le Mans is the greatest, most spectacular and toughest form for motorsport on tarmac - and for the 87th time the big event in France will start this Saturday 15th June - Who's excited to get cracking on with the action?

As usual we will be running a full 24 hour coverage of the greatest race on earth as over 60 cars and some of the best endurance drivers in the world take to the Circuit de la Sarthe for this spectacular show.

Stay tuned to RaceDepartment over the next day or two for details on how you can watch the big event via our live stream. It's going to be awesome!

Gonna try and watch as much as possible this year.
We're pretty skint after having our second child so no presents for Fathers Day but I have asked for as much time as I can get for Le Mans
Maybe I'll even sneak a few baguettes with jambon et fromage, (ham and cheese obvs but its Le Mans right?), into the deal... ;)

LMP1 is pretty much a joke, but the LMP2's and GT's is where the real battling will be!

Can't wait!

For me, it’s pretty interesting, but it’s not that that I can’t wait.
I’m much more into the 24h Nordschleife since the racing and the action is much much more intense.
But I will have a look at LeMans if there will be a stream available.
Will there be a stream available?
 
Love the race, love the venue, love the history. Todays running is a sad story though.
The series running the 24h of LeMans is a joke. Prototype class is a mess, manufacturers ditching GTE.....time to bury WEC for good.
And most importantly WEC broadcasting on ad polluted Eurosport or their overpriced app is not inviting me to watch as well. Will for sure not watch the whole event.
 
Back to mid-2000 levels of excitement for me - if you think it's bad now, you should have been watching it when Audi were winning by hours. GTE-Pro has been a farce since they introduced BoP and it's definitely on life-support given it looks like there's actual interest in the 2020 P1 rules now - unless OEMs are going to run GTE and P1 programs. That's OK by me, GTE-Am is worth watching.

WEC does not necessarily include Le Mans; there was a recent rumour that the ACO were considering pulling out of the WEC again, that has happened before too ( in 1990 ). There may not be a WEC on a given year but you can rely on Le Mans happening.
