Descripción editorial

This is a history of the Le Mans 24 Hours race, which is held annually in Mid-June, from WWII up to the present day (at the time of writing 2018, the running of which is included here). I have been a fan of the race since first becoming a motor racing devotee in the late 1980s, and having been three times (in wildly varying climate and general living conditions) I wished to produce my own record of the great race.

In this book I have given an introduction to the race, which gives a brief history of the round-the-clock classic - seen by the motorsport community at large as one of the three jewels in its crown along with the Monaco GP and the Indy 500 - as well as an idea as to what makes the race unique. This is then followed by a year-by-year report, with the different decades split into chapters, and finally a report on the winning manufacturers in alphabetical order.

I hope this book gives any reader, whether someone who has attended the race or not, a flavour of the drama, variety and great moments the race provided, whilst taking into account the tragedies which it has occasionally created too.
