Le Mans 24hr Test Day Preview


Sunday, May 31 will see 64 cars on track at Le Mans for the annual test day prior to the race itself. This give the teams a chance to perfect the cars setup for the track and, more importantly, give new drivers a chance to get to know the track.

The day is preceded by two days of scrutineering which all cars must pass in order for them to take place. This is the same process that will take place before the race itself.

This year, test day will see the first public outing of the new Nissan GT-R LMP1 car with its radical looking design and unconventional front-wheel drive. Also on track will be two invited LMP3 cars, driven by some of the Nissan drivers enabling them to qualify as drivers for the Le Mans race itself whilst allowing the team and engineers to concentrate on the LMP1 car.
