Race 3: Le Mans (F) 21.–22/06/2013

Quite probably the world’s most famous endurance race was first held for the first time in May 1923. Today part of the circuit still includes normal roads along which regular traffic runs apart from during race weekends. On the Hunaudières, the longest straight to be found on any race circuit in the world, the sport prototypes reach speeds well over 300 km/h. However, during the course of its 13 kilometers the circuit also has challenging corners like, for example, the Porsche combination.
