24 Hours of Le Mans Test Day in Figures
At Test Day yesterday (Sunday 3 June), teams in the 2018 24 Hours of Le Mans (the second round of the FIA World Endurance Championship) went through a dry run ahead of the big race on 16–17 June. They all learned some valuable lessons during their time out on the track.
24 Hours of Le Mans Test Day was scheduled to last eight hours, although there are a few interruptions during the day. For entrants in the race, it was the first chance this year to drive their cars on the iconic 13.626-km circuit. All 60 teams made the most of this opportunity to fine-tune their set-ups and procedures for the French endurance classic, which will start at 15:00 on 16 June.
