The 16 Hypercars, 24 LMP2s, 21 LMGTE Ams and the Hendrick Motorsports Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, fielded in the Innovative Car class, will be presented in the town centre before they take to the track for Test Day on Sunday 4 June.


Thirty-nine cars will be inspected on Friday 2 June. The DKR Engineering #43 Oreca 07-Gibson entered in the LMP2 class will open the proceedings at 10am.
