The cars are prepped, the weather forecast is for sun and the Le Mans 24 Hours is is almost ready to start, back in its familiar June slot for the 90th edition of the world’s longest-running endurance race.

You can watch all of the action on TV or live stream as the Alpine and Glickenhaus Hypercars look to overhaul polesitter Toyota and end its run of four straight victories.

It’s likely to be the best chance that any of the teams have to win the race for some years, as an influx of new contenders, including Porsche, Peugeot and Ferrari is expected next year.

There’s also likely to be a gripping battle in the LMP2 class, with 27 prototypes vying for glory and a shot at the podium, which is a real prospect given that only five Hypercars are racing.

Expect fireworks too, as Porsche, Ferrari, Aston Martin and Chevrolet duke it out in the GT classes. Qualifying is complete, as is the Hyperpole shootout for the fastest six cars in each class. The Tricolore will drop at 3pm BST on Saturday to mark the start of the race itself. Scroll down for full details of when and how to watch in the UK.
