It’s Le Mans 24H week and we’re only a few days away from the start of the greatest race on earth at the famous Circuit 24 Hours of Le Mans.
Sport21 will have representation on the grid with our Driver Ambassador, Paolo Ruberti, who once again teams up with the mighty Iron Lynx in their Ferrari 488 GTE. Iron Lynx of course, took a dramatic victory at the Spa 24h last month. So they will be looking at achieving a double 24h victory.
We also have to salute our friend Mathieu De Barbuat, who is having an incredible debut season, with a ELMS win at Monza in July. Mathieu joins Cool Racing in the Road to Le Mans support race. His aim is to achieve the ultimate goal for any French driver to stand on top of the podium at Le Mans.
And to cover all the bases. Potentially, the race that might steal the show, could be the Fun Cup 5H Le Mans race on Thursday, when 60 + VW Funcup cars will take to the track in what might be the longest slipstream in history! We wish our friends at DRM Motorsport and Jerome De Sadeleer
