Not long now until we wave goodbye to Ben Barker, Adam Carroll and Mike Wainwright of Gulf Racing as they head into the start of the 2016 Le Mans 24 Hours!
The team has been hard at work over the last fortnight, testing the iconic orange and blue Porsche 991 RSR, as well as preparing all three drivers for one of the most famous endurance races in the motorsports calendar as part of the FIA World Endurance Championship.
All three drivers will (of course!) be wearing their temperature-regulating base layers, which have been proven to reduce perspiration and heart rate.
The atmosphere has been building up over the weeks but excitement levels reached new heights last night when cheering crowds gathered from near and far to give support to the drivers during the Le Mans Driver Parade! There have been days of waiting but now the stage is well and truly set.
All that’s left to say is one last ‘Bonne Chance!’ to our partner, Gulf Racing! Have an amazing race, guys!
Race start is 3pm today. You can follow the drivers during the race by clicking here.
