Le Mans 24 Hours

The image of a Toyota prototype flipping through the air and slamming hard into a tyre barrier will be the lasting image of the 80th Le Mans 24 hours. That Anthony Davidson escaped with ‘only’ two cracked vertebrae was remarkable given the accident’s violence. once again the focus will fall on amateur drivers and their ability to race on the grande dame of all tracks.

Forty years on, the Lola-Aston B08/60 was easily the fastest of the petrol-powered LMP1 prototypes on its race debut. The car, run by...
