Le Mans 2019 details & more

After the photo call, the cars for the 87th running of the world’s greatest
endurance race return to the garages for last-minute preparations beforeone of the race preliminaries, the Test Day, which commences at 09:00 onSunday. 

On Saturday, the whole field – 8 LMP1s, 20 LMP2s, 17 LMGTE Pros and 17LMGTE Ams – of the FIA WEC 2018-19 Super Season lined up on the pit
straight for the traditional pre-race photograph. With two weeks to go,
the session marks the beginning of the countdown to the most important24 hours of the year in the endurance racing world.
Test Day on 2 June is a vital part of the groundwork before the classic
endurance race. Two sessions, morning and afternoon, offer competitors
the opportunity to assess their cars in race conditions and to encounter
the extraordinary circuit, which, being part public roads, is only open forofficial race sessions.

Test Day performance demonstrates current form and is the first chance
to size up the field. Drivers with no recent experience of the race must
complete ten laps (five of them timed), having already undergone
simulator training to familiarise themselves with the idiosyncrasies of
the race and circuit. The sessions are open to race ticket holders and day passes are on sale at the gates.

Next week, drivers and cars head for Place de la République to undergo
scrutineering and administrative checks in Le Mans city centre. On
Tuesday 4 June, the Bugatti, the closed-off portion of the main 24 Hours
circuit, hosts another preliminary track session for the last tweaks to
settings before the practice and qualifying sessions on Wednesday 12 and Thursday 13 June.

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is not only one of the world’s best-known
sporting events, its power of attraction also lies in its historic, cultural
and musical aspects.
