Updated entry list for the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans

The 24 Hours of Le Mans will run to a streamlined schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The new dates have been set from Thursday 17 September to Sunday 20 September, with 60 competitors battling it out on the iconic 13.626-km Circuit de la Sarthe.

Due to the global health crisis, it was no longer possible to run all 62 entries. Instead, the 24 Hours of Le Mans will run with 60 entries. View the latest entry list HERE and schedule HERE.

The line-up includes Toyota Gazoo Racing, who will be aiming for a third straight win in LMP1 while in the LMGTE Pro class, there will be another three-way battle between Ferrari, Porsche and Aston Martin.  The race will also go down in history as the final Le Mans appearance of the LMP1 Hybrid prototypes – they will bow out and make way for the Le Mans Hypercars in 2021.

The schedule for this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans is also a bit different.

•    11 hours of free practice, over Thursday and Friday
•    A brand-new sequence – the Hyperpole qualifier, a demonstration of sheer speed bringing together the 24 fastest cars (six from each class) for 30 minutes on Friday
•    A 15-minute warm-up on Saturday morning
•    The race itself, which will start at 14:30 with more driving in the dark than usual.

These four action-packed days will also include the Road to Le Mans and Porsche Carrera Cup events.
