24 Hours of Le Mans Preview

Tomorrow will see the start of the 2015 Le Mans 24 Hours which takes place around the Circuit de la Sarthe.

Although there are four different classes competing in Le Mans, this preview will focus on the LMP1 class where six different teams will be competing.

Audi will be attempting to claim another victory having won the prestigious event eight times in the last nine years.

Toyota and Porsche are likely to be Audi’s closest challengers and will be hoping to halt its current dominance of the event.

New to the LMP1 class this year is Nissan who have created a front engined car in the form of the Nissan GT-R LM Nismo. Although it is unlikely to win, it will be interesting to see how well it goes this year as the team enter three cars.

Lastly, both Swiss outfit, Rebellion Racing and Austrian, Team ByKolles will also be competing in the LMP1 class with Rebellion entering two cars and Team ByKolles entering one.
