Here’s the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans official photograph!

All 59 cars took position on the Le Mans pit straight for the official launch of the 88th 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Sadly the grandstands will be empty this weekend as the race will be staged behind closed doors, but the cars are here and have made their first foray onto the track for the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans official photo.

There will be more than 10 hours available for free practice on Thursday, plus the 45-minute qualifying session but, ahead of that, the 59 cars – 5 LMP1s, 24 LMP2s, 8 LMGTE Pros and 22 LMGTE AMs – came together on the Pit Straight late this afternoon for a very important moment: the official photograph of the competitors in the 2020 24 Hours of Le Mans, which will start at 14:30 on Saturday 19 September when race starter Carlos Tavares unleashes the cars for 24 hours of thrilling racing.

At 13:05 on Saturday, the PSA group CEO will complete a lap of the circuit at the wheel of the 908, the last Peugeot to win the 24 Hours of Le Mans (in 2009), a nod to Peugeot’s imminent return to endurance racing.

Another outstanding race car will take to the track just before the start on Saturday, the LMPH2G, the first hydrogen-electric prototype from the MissionH24 programme, with Olivier Lombard at the wheel.
