Here’s looking at Le Mans

Enjoy 30 specially selected snaps from the motorsport legend that is the Le Mans 24-hour race.

With Modern Traveller on its way to the 2016 running of the 24 Heures du Mans, it seems only fitting to reflect – in photographic form – upon what makes this annual affair so special, for drivers and fans alike.

Below are 30 images captured at the 2013 event, a race which saw drama, tragedy, passion and perseverance – sensations and emotions synonymous with this test of man and machine, and ones which draw motorsport enthusiasts from across the world to witness this historic happening.

Photographs can be oh-so-capitvating, seizing shots of speed and skill – but, truly, there’s no substitute for the sounds, smells and atmosphere of being in attendance, in person, to feel the roar of a pack of race-bred motors ready to take their shot at the 24 Heures crown.
