Speed Chills Are Go!

It’s that time of the year again! The cars have been checked, the drivers have been briefed, and today marks the start of this year’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.


We’ve been busy as well, making sure everything’s ready to go for you guys. This year we’ve been upgrading your Le Mans weekend; we’ve rejigged the layout of the marquee so you don’t have to walk through the band to get to the bar, and we’ve uprated the sound and lighting systems with better speakers and laser lights.

This afternoon will see an LM24 Free Practice session between 4 and 8, before the Aston Martin Festival has its own practice between 8.30 and 9.30. Finally tonight we’ll see the first of the three LM24 qualifying sessions, between 10 o’clock and midnight.

If you’re coming today, we’ll have Quali on in the marquee but if the weather’s good it’ll be worth heading on up to the inside of the Porsche Curves for a couple of hours to get your first glimpse of the cars. If you’re not coming ‘til later in the week we’ll be covering the sessions on the website as well as on Twitter (follow @SpeedChillsView) and on Facebook (www.facebook.com/speedchills) with reports, pictures and videos.
