The LMP2 class has proven just as popular as last year, with 15 outfits fielding 20 cars.
This year however, Ligier has the advantage with nine JSP217s on the grid, followed by Oreca with eight Oreca 07s, including one Alpine A470, then three Dallaras. Riley, the fourth chassis builder in the class, will not be represented at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year. Jackie Chan DC Racing, class winner in 2017 and overall runner-up, is back with a vengeance and four cars, two Ligiers and two Orecas. However, the Chinese team faces some stiff competition in the race for this year’s Le Mans crown.
