Recently named the world’s best sporting event by National Geographic, this year the 24 Hours of Le Mans celebrates 80 years.
The racing season may seem a long way off now, but to help set the mood the event’s organizing body, the ACO (Automobile Club de l’Ouest) has prepared a montage video of highlights throughout the decades. Enjoy it for now and look forward to the 80th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans on June 16th and 17th. This year’s event promises to be an exciting and an important one as hybrid engine cars (from both Toyota and Audi) are set to compete for the first time.
