It’s easy to understand why the 24 Hours of Le Mans really means a lot to us. This annual event, held almost every year since 1923, is the world’s oldest and greatest active sports car endurance race. For the first time ever, we are going to take a deep-dive on the history of our favorite race with a three-part series. Part one, “Patriotic Pride,” focused on winners and losers from the early days of Le Mans.
