Le Mans 24 Hours Preview

Tomorrow, the greatest, toughest, racing test a driver can compete in starts! The 80th Le Mans 24 Hours looks to be one of the best in the event's history. With hybrids competing for the first time, and the "Garage 56" DeltaWing, it will have plenty of variety too.

We see some ex-F1 stars, such as Nick Heidfeld, Sebastian Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastian Bourdais take part in their first Le Mans. It will be interesting to see how they drive the different type of car

 This year, Toyota have saved the day for LMP1. With Peugeot pulling out of sportscar development, Toyota started racing their new hybrid early, basically saving the World Endurance Championship. They have a tough fight on their hands, against Audi's R18 hybrid.

GT academy winners Jordan Tresson (Signatech Nissan) and Lucas Ordonez (Greaves Motorsport) have their Le Mans debut this year in the LMP2 class. This means they have went from Gran Turismo gamers, to Le Mans racers!

The GT fight will be as good as ever with 4 manufacturers in the field. Ferrari's 458 Italia, Chevrolet's Corvette C6.R, Porsche's 911 GT3-RSR and Aston Martin's Vantage GTE.

You can enjoy every minute of the 80th Le Mans 24 Hours live on Eurosport. I personally recommend watching it!

Hope you enjoyed reading this preview, please comment and tell me your opinions!
