The attention of the motor sport world turns to France for the greatest endurance event of the year, the 24 Hours of Le Mans, from 17 – 18 June 2017. Sixty cars will line up on the grid before the French Tricolour flag drops to mark the start of the 85th edition of this prestigious event at Circuit de la Sarthe, and the third round of the 2017 FIA World Endurance Championship. As the Rolex clock begins its 24-hour countdown, the drivers and cars will embark on their quest to conquer one of the ultimate tests of human and technical performance. The 2017 running of Le Mans will be particularly special for Rolex Testimonee and legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans winner, Tom Kristensen, who this year proudly celebrates the twentieth anniversary of his first ever victory at Circuit de la Sarthe. This significant win marked the start of a successful racing career as the Dane went on to win eight more times at Le Mans, a feat unmatched by any other driver in the race’s lengthy history.
