The LMGTE Pro class has even broader appeal this year with six manufacturers competing... There will be a healthy 13-car strong LMGTE Am grid at the 24 Hours of Le Mans
The LMGTE Pro class has even broader appeal this year with six manufacturers competing : BMW is making its comeback to the discipline with the M8 and will line up alongside Aston Martin, Porsche, Ferrari, Chevrolet Corvette and Ford. There will be 17 cars on the grid, illustrating the race’s international appeal and affirming the prestige of this class where victory is hugely important for the manufacturers. Last year’s winner, Aston Martin, will be fielding its new Vantage, which it hopes will more than measure up to its predecessor. The bets are on but it’s anyone’s game at this stage !
Finally, there will be a healthy 13-car strong LMGTE Am grid at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, endorsing the ACO’s ideal of including amateur drivers in endurance events. JMW Motorsport is the title-holder but has some serious challengers.
