Gallery: Le Mans Test 2016

Le Mans News

The best photos from the 2016 Le Mans Test, where Audi set the headline time ahead of the twice-round-the-clock classic on June 18-19. Lucas Di Grassi claimed the bragging rights, as the #8 R18 he shares with Oliver Jarvis and Loïc Duval beat the reigning champions in the Porsche #1 of Timo Bernhard, Mark Webber and Brendon Hartley by 0.8s. The time was similar to that set at the 2015 test, set on a drying circuit 12 months ago.

Tristan Gommendy led the packed LMP2 field in the Eurasia Motorsport Oreca, with the IMSA-based Corvette C7 of Anthony Garcia, Jan Magnussen and Ricky Taylor fastest in GTE Pro. The Labre Competiton Corvette of Pierre Ragues, Jean-Phillipe Belloc, Nicky Catsburg and Yutaka Yamagishi topped GTE-Am, courtesy of the moonlighting Catsburg.
