It is setup day for the biggest race in the world! The Le Mans 24 Hours. The race may be taking place behind closed doors, and some months after it was meant to happen but we can being you some coverage. Our man, Paul Foster is on location and now, the setup is in full swing.
Take a closer look at some of the details of the cars, the pits and some of the liveries that we will see this weekend…
In the news
To commemorate the team’s first of 19 overall victories at Le Mans, the No. 91 and No. 92 Porsche 911 RSR – 19 cars will feature special red-white and black-white liveries.
With crisp lines and shapes, the colours resemble the digital RSR that successfully contested the first-ever 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual back in June.
The 24 Hours of Le Mans will be taking place behind closed doors for the first time in the history of the race. Consequently, the organisers have introduced an ambitious digital platform with video and audio content to take the race to its spectators.
No effort has been spared in these challenging times. Launched today, the platform www.24h-united.com encompasses the ACO’s core values. The call to action is two-fold:
A fundraising campaign in aid of the European Society of Intensive Care Medicine to help train medical staff in the treatment of Covid-19.
An invitation to share real life experiences of the race on social media
This year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans Grand Marshal is a high-spirited Italian: Emanuele Pirro takes the baton from Hurley Haywood who fulfilled the prestigious role last year. Previous Grand Marshals include Henri Pescarolo (2013), Allan McNish (2014), Tom Kristensen (2015), Alexander Wurz (2016), Mark Webber (2017) and Jacky Ickx (2018).
