The 90th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans is just around the corner. With its long history and the list of renowned drivers and teams, France’s Circuit de la Sarthe serves as a mecca for the sport’s elite every year during the 24-hour race known as “Le Mans.”
The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world’s most prestigious endurance race and takes place annually in France. It is a long-distance race over a Circuit de la Sarthe that includes a total of 16 sectors. The race starts at dawn and lasts until dusk. The competition is fierce, with racers battling it out for pole position, fast laps, and the lead in the overall standings. This year’s race will be contested by some of the world’s best drivers and their machines.
The team that covers the farthest distance over the following 24 hours is announced the winner. This year’s key issue is whether or not the Toyota Gazoo Racing team will be able to compete for a fifth consecutive victory after successful seasons for the team thus far.
