See Some of the Craziest Moments From the Famous 24 Hours of Le Mans
One of the most famous races in the world is taking place right now and I thought what better time to look at some of the wildest moments that have taken place during the long history of this race. I’m of course talking about the 24 hours of Le Mans. And if somehow you’re unfamiliar with this race, it’s exactly what it sounds like. It’s the ultimate endurance race that lasts a full 24 hours of continuous racing on the iconic Circuit de la Sarthe race track.
The Circuit de la Sarthe is a track that spans 8.47 miles and is considered one of the fastest tracks in the world. Even with these incredibly high powered and high-tech race cars, they run at full throttle for almost 85% of each lap. Just yesterday during the second qualifying session, Kamui Kobayashi set a new lap record with a lightning fast time of 3:14.8 in his Toyota LMP1 car! So needless to say, this weekend’s main race has the potential of being one for the record books. In the meantime, take a look at some of the wildest moments from years past.
