The 24 Hours of Le Mans is the world's oldest active sports car race in endurance racing, held annually since 1923 near the town of Le Mans, France. It is one of the most prestigious automobile races in the world and is often called the "Grand Prix of Endurance and Efficiency."
“Le Mans takes the best out of everyone," says Tom Kristensen (aka “Mr. Le Mans”), a record nine-time Le Mans Champion. "Winning is important but it’s not everything. It’s such a big and great event in motorsport. You do more kilometres in that one race than Formula One do in a season, and probably a higher average speed. We average about 220 km/h including pit stops and cover nearly 5,000 km.”
