24 Hours of Le Mans

24 Hours of Le Mans

One of the most prestigious automobile races in the world, the 24 Hours of Le Mans is the oldest active sports car race in endurance racing at The Circuit de la Sarthe, between the towns of Le Mans and Mulsanne in Northern France. First run on 26 and 27 May 1923 as the "Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency", a showcase for car manufacturers to prove the durability of their vehicles in competition, it has evolved into a high-speed chess match among top professional racing teams where strategy, teamwork, and great driving skill are as important as a car's reliability and technological edge. The ‘Motorsport Superbowl’ has a simple victory condition: the car that covers the greatest distance in 24 hours is the winner. Along with the Indy 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix, Le Mans forms the prestigious Triple Crown of Motorsport, coveted by racing drivers across the globe. Nowadays, the 24 Hours of Le Mans is one of several races in the FIA World Endurance Championship and attracts over a quarter of million fans trackside, with over three times that watching along at home.

From the Bentleys and Bugattis of the early 1920s, through the dominant years of Ferrari, Jaguar, Ford and Porsche to the more recent victories of McLaren and Audi, this collection of models is a celebration of the most iconic cars, drivers and teams in the history of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
