ACO 24 Hours of Le Mans

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world’s oldest active endurance sports car race, with a history tracing back to 1923. Easily one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world, Le Mans is organized by the Automobile Club de l’Ouest (ACO) and runs on the Circuit de la Sarthe in France, a track comprising a mix of closed public roads and a specialist racing circuit. Entrants must balance speed with endurance to merely survive 24 hours of intense competition, let alone ascend to the event podium.

Since 2012, the 24 Hours of Le Mans has been a part of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). As an event on the WEC schedule, competitors are classed per FIA WEC categories: LMP1, LMP2, LMGTE Pro and LMGTE Am.

In 2017, four Ford GTs will once again compete in LMGTE Pro under the Ford Chip Ganassi Racing banner: cars #66 and #67 as campaigned in the FIA WEC by Multimatic Motorsports Europe; and cars #68 and #69 brought over from North American IMSA competition by US-based Chip Ganassi Racing.
