2017 24 Hours of Le Mans

Last updated on 21 June 2017

The 85th 24 Hours of Le Mans (French: 85e 24 Heures du Mans) was an automobile endurance event held on 17–18 June 2017 at the Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans, France. It was the 85th running of the 24 hour race organised by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest as well as the third round of the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship.

The race was won by the No. 2 Porsche driven by Timo Bernhard, Brendon Hartley and Earl Bamber after taking the lead of the race in the final two hours. It was Bamber and Bernhard's second victories at Le Mans, and Hartley's first. Toyota's Sébastien Buemi, Kazuki Nakajima, and Anthony Davidson finished in eighth place after starting on pole position, and was the only other competitor in the LMP1 field to finish the event. The LMP2 category was led by Ho-Pin Tung, Thomas Laurent, and Oliver Jarvis in the No. 38 Jackie Chan DC Racing Oreca, who led the race for several hours before finishing in second place overall. The second DC Racing entry of David Cheng, Tristan Gommendy, and Alex Brundle were three laps behind for third overall, followed by the No. 35 Signatech Alpine of Nelson Panciatici, Pierre Ragues, and André Negrão.

Aston Martin won the LMGTE Pro category, after the No. 95 car of Darren Turner, Jonathan Adam, and Daniel Serra overtook the stricken No. 63 Corvette of Jordan Taylor, Antonio García, and Jan Magnussen in the final two laps of the race. The No. 67 Ford was also able to pass the Corvette on the final lap to take second place for Harry Tincknell, Andy Priaulx, and Pipo Derani. LMGTE Am was won by the JMW Motorsport Ferrari of Robert Smith, Will Stevens, and Dries Vanthoor. Ferraris also finished in second and third, with Spirit of Race's Duncan Cameron, Aaron Scott, and Marco Cioci in second, and Scuderia Corsa's Townsend Bell, Cooper MacNeil, and Bill Sweedler in third.

Regulation changes

Following the 2016 event in which the leading car failed on its final lap and was eventually not classified in the final results, the standards by which a car is classified have been changed. Instead of the mandatory six minutes for the final lap of the race, penalties will be awarded for any lap over six minutes on a gradual scale. Failure to complete the last lap of the race in under fifteen minutes will now lead to a car no longer being classified.[1]

The slow zone system used at Le Mans has also been revised, with nine dedicated slow zone sectors laid out around the circuit. Previously individual marshal posts were used to mark the beginning and end of slow zones. The dedicated zones have been located such that the beginning of the 80 km/h (50 mph) is in a slow section of the circuit; previous slow zones could begin in areas of the track where cars were required to slow down from high speeds and cause accidents.[2]

The LMP2 category was revamped with the introduction of a single specification motor from Gibson, with increased power output compared to 2016 LMP2s.[3] Cockpit and chassis designs also mimic the LMP1 regulations for safety.[4] The four approved chassis manufacturers were Dallara, Ligier, Oreca and Riley.[5]

Entries

Automatic invitations

Automatic entry invitations are earned by teams that won their class in the previous running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, or won championships in the European Le Mans Series, Asian Le Mans Series, and the Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup. The second-place finisher in the European Le Mans Series LMGTE championship also earns an automatic invitation. Two participants from the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship are chosen by the series to be automatic entries by the ACO regardless of their performance or category. As invitations are granted to teams, they were allowed to change their cars from the previous year to the next, but not allowed to change their category. The LMGTE class invitations from the European and Asian Le Mans Series are allowed to choose between the Pro and Am categories. European Le Mans Series' LMP3 champion is required to field an entry in LMP2 while the Asian Le Mans Series LMP3 champion may choose between LMP2 or LMGTE Am. The Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup champions are limited to the LMGTE Am category.[6]

Entry list

In conjunction with the announcement of entries for the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship and the 2017 European Le Mans Series, the ACO announced the full 60 car entry list for Le Mans, plus two reserves.[7] Two cars were initially named to the reserve entry list for the event; RLR Msport later withdrew their LMP2 Ligier, while a fourth entry from Proton Competition remained without being promoted to the race.

With the withdrawal of Audi from LMP1, the class was reduced to just six entries for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Qualifying

Toyota took to the top of the field in qualifying, locking out the first row on the grid and breaking several lap records in the process. Kamui Kobayashi's 3:14.791 lap time during the second qualifying session was nearly two seconds faster than the qualifying lap record set in 2015 on the current 13.629 km (8.469 mi) version of the Circuit de la Sarthe, and averaged 251.882 km/h (156.512 mph) to beat Hans-Joachim Stuck's 1985 qualifying run.[8] The No. 8 Toyota secured second place during the final session after suffering an engine oil issue earlier in the day in the second session, necessitating an engine change. Porsche settled for third and fourth on the grid, but not before the No. 1 stopped on the circuit due to overheating and was unable to continue the final session. The third Toyota remained in fifth place for all three qualifying sessions, while the ByKolles ENSO CLM was sixth fastest.

The LMP2 category, with all-new, more powerful cars for 2017, were over 11 seconds faster than the class pole time the previous year. Alex Lynn led the category with a 3:25.352 lap, giving G-Drive their third consecutive pole position in the World Endurance Championship. The No. 25 Manor were two-tenths of a second behind, while DC Racing's No. 38 entry was a further half of a second behind. Oreca chassis, as well as the variant Alpine chassis, secured the first nine positions in the LMP2 class, while the Dallara of SMP Racing was the fastest of the other chassis in tenth place.[8] Eurasia Motorsport suffered the only major incident of the qualifying session after Erik Maris spun into a barrier on the exit of the first Mulsanne chicane at the start of the second qualifying session, stopping the session for half an hour.[9]

Aston Martin led the LMGTE Pro category with Darren Turner setting a 3:50.837 lap time, the fastest lap of Le Mans for an LMGTE car. All five manufacturers in LMGTE Pro were within a second of Turner's lap, with the fastest Ferrari in second, Ford fifth, Corvette sixth, and Porsche seventh. Larbre Compétition led LMGTE Am, with Fernando Rees setting a 3:52.843 lap time with the Corvette, four-tenths of a second clear of the No. 98 Aston Martin; the No. 62 Scuderia Corsa Ferrari was third in the class.[10]

Race

Race summary

After pre race problems the LMP1 No. 4 ByKolles Racing Team entry retired after completing 7 laps due to a loss of compression in the engine.[16] Toyota established a healthy lead in the early hours of the race and the No. 2 Porsche took a lengthy stop after three and a half hours to fix its front axle, losing touch with the leaders. Four and a half hours in the No. 8 Toyota also had to make repairs in the pits, dropping them from contention for the win.[17]

Ten hours in, the overall race leader No. 7 Toyota, suffered a clutch failure and could not make it back to the pits under hybrid power, forcing its retirement. This was quickly followed by the No. 9 Toyota colliding with an LMP2 car which caused a puncture. The debris left on the wheel rim caused further damage to the No. 9's gearbox and forced it to retire.[18] This left the No. 1 Porsche with a large lead in the overall standings. However, with four hours to go, it too failed and retired from the race.[19] This left the No. 38 LMP2 car as the overall leader, meaning that for the first time in history the race was led by an LMP2 runner.[20] The eventual winner was the No. 2 Porsche, passing the No. 38 with less than two hours to go and taking victory with 367 laps.[21]

Following the race, the third-place finishing No. 13 Rebellion Oreca was disqualified by race officials after it was found that the team had modified the rear bodywork by cutting a hole to allow them to hit a faulty starter motor. This modification was deemed as an unnecessary modification of a homologated part of the bodywork. The disqualification promoted the second Jackie Chan DC Racing car to third place overall and second in class.[22]

Race result

The minimum number of laps for classification (70% of the overall winning car's race distance) was 257 laps. Class winners in bold.[23]
