We're gearing up for the 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend. Hagerty joins forces with Radio Le Mans, the only free to air, live, and global coverage provider for the event, to bring you some race trivia. Answer ANY of the 10 questions below for a chance to win your own limited edition official 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans polo.

 

  1. Which famous drummer has raced at Le Mans? Fortunately, he didn't put a hole in the wall.
  2. Alain de Cadenet was a favourite private entrant at Le Mans with his eponymous cars. But which famous F1 designer designed the car?
  3. Gordon subsequently designed a car which went on to win the race. What was the car?
  4. When David Bell, Justin Bell, and Andy Wallace almost won Le Mans, their sponsor was a famous London store. What was the store?
  5. In what year did the start of the race not take place on the existing start-finish straight?
  6. What was the best ever result for a single driver in the 24 Hours of Le Mans? Name the driver, car, and year?
  7. Who was the last driver to drive two cars during the race?
  8. Name at least three drivers who had a parent compete here in the past?
  9. How many times has the race not been held in the month of June ? 
  10. According to the officially posted results, what was the longest—in terms of time—that the race ever lasted? Bear in mind that the race finishes when the leading car crosses the start-finish line for the first time after 24 hours have elapsed.

The only one I can think of for "Name at least three drivers who had a parent compete here in the past?" is Justin Bell - father Derek Bell

I'm pretty sure Wayne Taylor ran here in the 80s - both his kids have run here (Ricky and Jordan)
