How to keep a Le Mans class‑winning Aston Martin DBR9 on the track

Many challenging endurance races are held across the globe each year. The 24 Hours of Nürburgring takes place on the Nordschleife, an infamous 12.95-mile ribbon of tarmac with 73 corners and more than 160 cars competing for space. The 24 Hours of Daytona sees a mixture of prototypes and GT cars duelling in the longest race in American motorsport. The cars of the Bathurst 12 Hours, meanwhile, fight against each other and the elements, as the cars struggle for air at 3,000ft above sea level.

There is one endurance race, however, that still stands above all others. The 24 Hours of Le Mans.
