Here's some eye candy from the 24 Hours of Le Mans for you to enjoy!
Below you'll see photos that Motorsport.com gathered during this year's edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans spectacle. I only selected images from during and just prior to or after the race. As stated in the subheading above, enjoy the eye candy and be sure to check out the rest of our photo gallery when you're done here!
What everyone is at Le Mans for.
As always, the 24 Hours of Le Mans kicked off with the Saturday warmup. Above, you'll see the car that would end up winning the race a little bit over a day later.
Gene: "No joke, they just told me right there that they'd like me to drive the No. 1 Audi! I just glanced over at the JOTA guys and then bolted out of there! haha" Fernando to himself: "I wonder if they'd just put me in the car if something 'unfortunate' were to happen to Marc?"
Man, I just love the openness of those LMP2 cars. If you look closely, you can almost see everything.
Sorry Mark, you've been replaced.
Some of the hardest working people you'll see at Le Mans.
An message from Audi to Loic Duval. How cool is that?
What do you think these two are discussing?
The formation lap gets underway. One of those Audis will crash out early, a second will enjoy the thrill of victory, and the other will carry three drivers left thinking what could have been as they stand on the second step of the podium.
Fernando Alonso waves the flag and the race is on!
Here come the GTE Pro cars!
The entire LMP1 field races off into the first corners of this grueling, 24 hour race. Four of these nine prototypes will never cross the finish line Sunday afternoon.
The #14 Porsche riding a bit too low and scrapping the ground during the pre-race warmup
This is actually a fan photo...I'm fairly certain those belong to the Nissan ZEOD. That or one of the Audi prototypes; it's hard to tell really.
This will be the final photo of the Nissan ZEOD that I show you. Why? Well, because it never made it past the 30 minute mark of the event....
The life blood of all race cars.
Jumping curbs in my Porsche at the start of a 24 hour race because, why not?
Two prototypes race under the Dunlop Bridge.
The first pit stop for this nice-looking ProSpeed Porsche. Their race later ended when a door literally just fell off in the pit lane, promptly followed by the left-rear wheel when it returned to the track. That's Le Mans for ya.
Product placement gone too far? And wait a minute, wouldn't you want to get your name out in front of the camera instead of on top of it?
One of the saddest sights you'll see at Le Mans. When that door closes, a team's bid at Le Mans glory has officially ended.
Thanks for destroying the #3 Audi and #8 Toyota, we really appreciated that in the second hour of the race. Jerk.
The #41 car is being so courteous bringing the front of the #48 to the pits so he can give it back to the Murphy team. Don't see it? Look here...
Yeah, I'm pretty sure that doesn't belong to you.
LMP2 cars everywhere!
Check out the car that ended up finishing third. That's why you never EVER give up at Le Mans.
A cool shot from the back as an Aston Martin and Corvette kick up some dirt as they fight it out at Le Mans.
Sunset at Le Mans...it doesn't get much cooler than that.
Here's another amazing sunset shot.
LMP2 and GT cars battling as the sun sets around them.
Le Mans at night. Just spectacular.
This car drove off into the night hours with a massive advantage, but alas, it would never see sunrise the following morning.
He's got his game face on.
The #2 Audi hits the pit lane in the middle of the night, and in the background, you can see the garage of the #3 sister Audi dark all closed up.
Another night stop!
I'm getting dizzy.
The sun really did shine upon this Audi Sunday morning.
Another great sunrise pic.
The beaten up and dirt-covered #74 Corvette survived the brutal night hours, but would encounter some major issues on Sunday that would put them out of contention for the GTE Pro victory.
Mark Webber prepares to fight it out with the rival Audis late in the going...
...or maybe not. Le Mans is a cruel mistress.
You know the end of the race is near when you see this.
The #2 Audi prepares to claim Le Mans glory.
The #2 Audi team rejoices with Dr. Ullrich after their Le Mans triumph.
What an incredible feeling that must be...
Imagine Seb and Mark as teammates for Le Mans? That would be an interesting pairing...
Let the champagne fly! Fun fact: did you know that the worldwide tradition of spraying champagne was started by Dan Gurney after the 1967 24 Hours of Le Mans? Oh, you did? I'll shut up then.
Andre Lotterer likes champagne...like a lot.
For the love of God Andre, calm yourself.
For Allan. Way to go #95.
