The Golden Season of Classics Sports: Le Mans 2018
The 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race is running 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 2018 rules, which are run in combination with the FIA and WEC (Word Endurance Championship)Pay particular attention to the Sporting Regulations and also to the technical regulations for the racing class you’re most interested in following.
There are different rules for each of the four classes at Le Mans and they are rather complex. Check them out when you go to the “sporting regulations” link (above).
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 over the weekend.
