24 hours of Le Mans beat its record of participation

The 87th edition of the famous French endurance event will feature 62 cars and 186 riders in the race that will close the World Championship this weekend.


The World Endurance Championship (WEC) 2018/2019 ends this weekend. This season has been different since for the first time it started and ended with the legendary endurance test. For that reason, there is not a better ending to this World Cup so special than the dispute of a new edition of the 24 hours of Le Mans. A race that this year has exceeded its record of participation.

In the 87th edition of the most famous endurance event in the world there will be a total of 62 cars and 186 pilots. A whole record of participation in this legendary race. To date, the record was in 60 cars, a record that had been given in the last three years. A few numbers that highlight the importance of this appointment.

Among all those riders who are going to compete in the French track stands one above all, Fernando Alonso. The two-time champion of the Formula 1 world faces the final test of the season with an doble objective: to revalidate his title of winner of the 24 hours of Le Mans and proclaim himself World Resistance champion. At the moment, things could not go better to the Asturian pilot since the Toyota that pilots along with Buemi and Nakajima marked the best time in the first trainings that took place last week.
