Le Mans 2014

This weekend sees Le Mans 24 hour race begin on Saturday at 3pm in France (2pm UK) time.  This is a test of endurance, 5,500 km in 24 hours,  as @SpeedTVAus put on twitter, it's a full F1 season in one day.  That sums it up nicely.  

 

Mark Webber is driving this year, the ex F1 driver in the Porsche team.  You can follow @porscheraces on twitter.  He'll be driving alongside Timo Bernhard and Bernhard Hartley.   To see who else is driving and categories of cars, here's the spotters guide
