This could be one of the most open Le Mans 24 Hours in years. Porsche, Audi and Toyota all appear to have a realistic chance of victory in the 84th running of the French enduro.
The race is about much more than the battle for outright honours at the front of the field, however. Ford is back on the 50th anniversary of the first of its Le Mans victories in the 1960s bidding for victory in an ever-more competitive GTE Pro field.
No fewer than 23 cars line up in the ultra-competitive LMP2 class on the expanded 60-car grid.
