A Pro-Racer Driven To Make Tracks Safer
  By Richard RJ Valentine
In my 40 years as a pro-racer, there have been memorable highlights and multiple finishes, but there have also been serious injuries.  Same can be said for many other drivers but, in some cases, they lost their racing career and in others, their life. I have always contended that it's impossible to understand how critical track safety is, unless you've personally been behind the wheel, racing at 100+ miles per hour, knowing you could hit a wall that might maim or kill you. The bottom line is track operators aren't the ones risking their lives in the driver's seat.

Toyota fails handing Porsche shock win at LeMans
  Japanese embarrassed with victory in grasp
The No. 5 Toyota Hybrid lost a race long battle with the No. 2 Porsche in the 84th 24 Hours of LeMans when the  leading Toyota came to a stop in front of the pits with 3 minutes left to run. The No. 6 Toyota finished 2nd 3 laps down. The No. 68 Ganassi Ford GT driven by IndyCar driver Sebastien Bourdais, Dirk Muller and Joey Hand gave Ford victory in their return to LeMans winning a race long battle with the privateer Risi Ferrari 488.
LeMans: Toyota the one to beat at mid-race
  Porsche a close 2nd
After 12 hours of racing, the race remains totally undecided and the battle is on between Toyota and Porsche. The Toyota Gazoo Racing team is on top thanks to a reduction in fuel consumption which seems to have given it a real advantage. Indeed, between each pit stop, the TS050 has been capable of doing 14 laps against 13 for the 919 Hybrid.
Full-Time IMSA Ford GT Team Qualifies 1-2 at Le Mans
  by Steven Cole Smith
With close to 50 IMSA regular and semi-regular drivers entered in the 81st running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race, you'd expect qualifying performances to extend all through the field, and you'd be correct. The brightest spot, though: One of the new Chip Ganassi Racing Ford GTs is on the pole for the hotly contested GTE Pro class, which is equivalent to the GT Le Mans class in IMSA's WeatherTech SportsCar Championship. In fact, the four Ford GTs are first and second, and fourth and fifth, split only by an AF Corse Ferrari in third.

  Preview of 24 Hour race
Public expectations are high ahead of the Le Mans 24-Hour on June 18 and 19. Le Mans is also the third round of the FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC). Ahead of the season’s highlight, the trio of Romain Dumas (FR), Neel Jani (CH) and Marc Lieb (DE) leads the drivers’ standings. The reigning world champions in the sister car, Timo Bernhard (DE), Brendon Hartley (NZ) and Mark Webber (AU), have been unlucky in the first two rounds (accident in Silverstone, puncture in Spa-Francorchamps) and can’t wait to catch up.
Glen Wood Watched Ford Win Le Mans In 1966
  Back when Ford was going for the overall win
Glen Wood, like other members of the Ford Performance family, will have a keen interest in this weekend’s 24 Hours of Le Mans, as Ford will make its return to sports car racing’s premier event on the 50th anniversary of its breakthrough Le Mans victory.  Wood, whose family-owned team fields the No. 21 Motorcraft/Quick Lane Ford Fusion driven by Ryan Blaney on NASCAR’s Sprint Cup circuit, was at Le Mans back in 1966 for that historic victory, which saw the Ford GT Mark II not only win the race, but sweep the top three finishing positions.
Corvette Racing taking on world again at LeMans
  Pair of Corvette C7.Rs ready to go for ninth win
A year ago, Corvette Racing stood on the top step of the podium after winning endurance racing’s biggest event for the eighth time. It’s now another season and another chance for Corvette Racing to claim victory at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Doing so will write another chapter in the team’s and Chevrolet’s racing history.

24 Hours of Le Mans
  Toughest race of the year for Audi
Never before has Audi made so much out of so little: In its 18th Le Mans participation since 1999, Audi has less fuel energy at its disposal than ever before – and less than its competitors, as specified by the regulations. Still, the new Audi R18 LMP sports car is to battle for the top spot on June 18 and 19 thanks to notable efficiency. 13 times Audi has won the 24-hour race to date and this year the endurance classic will arguably be as tough as never before.
