Here’s how to follow 24 Hours of Le Mans 2016 online

It’s one of the most gruelling and prestigious races of the year with spades of history behind its name and years of technology development bolting around its tarmac. It’s the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and this year, Porsche, Toyota and Audi will once again battle it out for top honours.

If you can’t catch the race on television, don’t worry, there are other ways to keep abreast of the action.

Note: the race starts at 3pm SAST on Saturday 18 June 2016, and ends at 3pm SAST on 19 June 2016.

Twitter

Your best bet is following the official Le Mans 24 Hours account, and the official hashtag #LeMans24. Beyond that, Porsche, Toyota, and Audi also have their respective accounts. As it is a World Endurance Championship event, you can also follow the FIA’s WEC account.

You can also follow Motorburn’s ever-growing Le Mans 24H follow list (or catch it at the foot of this article).

Live streaming

Most WEC teams have their own live streaming platforms, including Porsche and Audi. The official FIA WEC site also has live timing once the race is underway.

Ford Performance — running GT40s at this year’s race — also has a live stream via YouTube below.

Radio

Radio Le Mans is the go-to source for those who can’t quite catch video, and it’s also available on TuneIn as well on Android, iOS and Windows 10 (and as an HTML5 player here).

Instagram

24 Hours of Le Mans also has its own non-official Instagram account run by a slew of motoring enthusiasts and track spotters, as well as a hashtag #LeMans.
