Two days after the official Test Day for the 24 Hours of Le Mans, some competitors were on track again today. 

#5 Toyota Racing Toyota TS050 Hybrid: Anthony Davidson, Sébastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima, Alexander Wurz
#7 Audi Sport Team Joest Audi R18: Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer, Benoit Tréluyer
#1 Porsche Team Porsche 919 Hybrid: Timo Bernhard, Mark Webber, Brendon Hartley

#7 Audi Sport Team Joest Audi R18: Marcel Fassler, Andre Lotterer, Benoit Tréluyer

On Tuesday, as in recent years, the short Bugatti version of the circuit was open to competitors who wanted to test.

About 10 cars took part in the running around the fully-permanent track (4.185km), especially in the morning between 9am and 12am.

This test day allows teams to make adjustments, and to shakedown the engines and gearbox which will be used in the French sportscar classic next week. 

Among teams who were on track today were the three factory LMP1 contenders: Audi, Porsche and Toyota, along with privateers Rebellion Racing.

Some LMP2 teams were also on track, incuding Alpine, Michael Shank Racing, Panis-Barthez Competition, RGR Sport by Morand and Manor. 

Useful track time was reduced in the afternoon due to rain showers following a sunny morning.

There was no official timing for this private test.
