RACER is teaming up with Radio Le Mans to keep you updated all week long on activities from the 80th running of the biggest event in sports car racing.
Radio Le Mans has been a fixture at the French endurance classic since 1987, when it first began its English-language broadcasts via an FM radio station at the track. Over the years it has continually expanded its content to include additional features and on-the-spot interviews, along with Internet streaming.
Now a full-time automotive and motorsport radio service, Radiolemans.com has been further developed by Radio Show Limited to become the foremost portal for coverage of endurance racing, with reporting and analysis from veteran motorsports journalists like Jeremy Shaw – a founding contributor to RACER, who continues to write for the magazine on a regular basis. (That's Jeremy above, interviewing Nissan DeltaWing driver Marino Franchitti after Wednesday's free practice session.)
Now, Radio Le Mans is set to expand again in association with RACER. You'll hear commentary and analysis from key RACER personnel throughout the racing season, as well as interviews and features explaining RACER's new management and revised direction of the magazine. Radio Le Mans' coverage will augment RACER's expansive news, interviews and images from Le Mans this weekend here at RACER.com, as well as on our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Radio Le Mans' 2012 coverage of the 24 Hours, which is presented by Simraceway, has been on site at the French circuit since last Sunday, starting with scrutineering. Live coverage will be provided from every practice and qualifying session. When the cars aren't on the track, the service will feature interviews and features from the paddock.
For the race, there's live commentary throughout, with hourly updates on the half-hour, and podcasts at radiolemans.com. Our Nissan Pit Lane Team will ensure that we hear the stories directly from the drivers and teams.
