Former pro basketball player and motorsport enthusiast Tony Parker has been named as the official starter for the 24 Hours of Le Mans Virtual which takes place this weekend (13/14 th June).

The event brings together the world's best professional drivers and sim racers for 24 hours of virtual racing around the legendary French track.

Selected six times for NBA All-Star games, the four-time NBA champion and French team captain showed his passion for the 24 Hours of Le Mans while visiting the event in 2019 and, both during his career and today in everyday life, personifies the true meaning of 'champion'.

As someone who has played all over the world, and who is well known for his community spirit and philanthropy, Parker is the perfect personality to fulfil this role.

Motorsport.tv and Motorsport.com will stream the entire event as well as providing full coverage of all the action and updates across the Motorsport Network's websites and social media accounts.

Commentators will guide viewers through the event from a studio in Paris, with a multitude of guest experts contributing their knowledge and opinions throughout.
