The 2019 24 Hours of Le Mans was another example of the ultimate test between man and machine.
As ever, the event produced some great access for fans and the media.
So with that in mind, here are some photos from the 87th 24 Hours of Le Mans race.
A day before the race, the ACO held a paddock day and allowed fans to get up close to their favourite cars.
And with over 300,000 fans from attending the race annually in recent years, there was a lot to see.
The Road to Le Mans
Fans were also granted access to the pit areas of the Road to Le Mans series.
Established in 2016, the support series plays host to cars from the LMP3 and GT3 categories respectively.
For 2019, the support race held two 55-minute races over the course of the weekend. Graff won the first race, while DKR Engineering claimed victory in race two.
Ferrari Challenge Europe Trofeo Pirelli
Essaar Motorsport were also granted exclusive access to the pit area of the Ferrari Challenge Europa Trofeo Pirelli Series.
The Ferrari Challenge uses the Ferrari 488 GTE and serves as part of its Corse Clienti programme.
The contest saw Adam Carroll take the win, ahead of Pole sitter and championship leader Louis Prette.
Before the race got underway, the team and drivers made their way to the city centre for the traditional drivers parade.
Here are some of the highlights from the event.
2019 24 Hours of Le Mans
There were contrasting emotions amongst Toyota, after the No.7 car was forced to make two late pit stops.
Kamui Kobayashi, Mike Conway and Jose Maria Lopez had led most of the race, only to lose it with 90 minutes left.
This effectively handed the win to the No.8 car of Fernando Alonso, Kazuki Nakajima and Sebastien Buemi.
In LMP2, Signatech Alpine claimed its second win in as many years, while AF Corse also triumphed in GTE Pro.
Additionally, Team Project were promoted to first in GT AM after Keating Motorsport’s disqualification.
