The 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race is this weekend. If you want to race in –or know what it takes to race in–one of the most famous races in the world, then you need to know the rules. The ACO (Automobile Club de L’Ouest, the organizing body for Le Mans), revises the rules every year.
Here’s your link to the 2017 rules. Pay particular attention to the Sporting Regulations and also to the technical regulations for the racing class you’re most interested in following.
The site where the rules are posted, which is the main site for the race, is a great resource.
Nightshift Sports will be following the 24 Hours of Le Mans race, which starts on Saturday, over the weekend.
