The 24 Hours of Le Mans represented at this coming weekend's Goodwood Revival

At the British circuit located on the site of a former World War II airfield, racing heavyweights Richard Attwood, Derek Bell, Romain Dumas, Marcel Fässler, Brendon Hartley, Neel Jani, Tom Kristensen, Jochen Mass, Emanuele Pirro and Benoît Tréluyer will make appearances.

Taking a closer look at the impact of these 10 drivers on the 24 Hours of Le Mans truly highlights their accomplishments. You'll find the current win record-holder (Tom Kristensen with nine), the first Swiss driver to triumph (Marcel Fässler), the winningest Brit and Italian (Derek Bell and Emanuele Pirro), one of the drivers responsible for the first of Porsche's 19 overall victories (Richard Attwood) and two of the three most recent French winners (Benoît Tréluyer and Romain Dumas).

In addition to these 10 overall winners present at the upcoming Goodwood Revival, look for two stars from the GT classes: Austrian driver Karl Wendlinger, who won two years in a row at the wheel of the Chrysler Viper 20 years ago (1999 and 2000), and the Brit Darren Turner who is largely to thank for Aston Martin's successful return to Le Mans with three wins of his own (2007, 2008 and 2017).
