The new faces among Le Mans’ oldest class

The cars in LMP2 may not be the youngest on the 2024 Le Mans field, but the category is still proving a launchpad to drivers seeking to break into international sportscar racing. Motorsport.com meets two of the newcomers hoping to make an impression

With the Hypercar category continuing to attract exciting fresh entries in its fourth year and the new LMGT3 class sparking plenty of interest, LMP2 is very much the old stager among the Le Mans 24 Hours’ current divisions. After all, the present generation of machinery was first introduced in 2017.

But, while the class may be a little longer in the tooth than the others – and has dropped out of the World Endurance Championship for this year – there are still scores of Circuit de la Sarthe rookies that have been attracted to LMP2’s ranks for 2024.
