Managing to stay awake for 24 hours is a constant battle against tiredness. But sometimes it’s at such times of fatigue that the best ideas come to mind. In honour of the 86th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, we have joined together with Stefan Waldherr to organise a special Draw this Race event in parallel to the French endurance classic.
For many years now the 24 Hours of Le Mans has been an event that has attracted a special group of fans, who attempt to capture the race’s atmosphere and pure speed in the form of drawings. Inspired by this creative way to embrace a passion for Le Mans, we will be looking at this weekend’s action from a rather different perspective. As the French tricolore flies on Saturday to signal the start of the race, Stefan will begin on his drawing. If you would like to follow his progress, you can watch his art take shape live via his Twitch channel. The end result will then be published here on WEC-Magazin.
We would like to take our challenge as an opportunity to ask you, Le Mans fans, to put together your own artistic representations of the famous endurance race. Using the hashtag #drawthisrace, you can share your work on Instagram and Twitter. If you have any questions, simply contact us at @wecmagazin or via email.
Make sure you follow our social media channels on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter to keep up to date with all the latest news about the 24 Hours of Le Mans. We will be bringing you all the stories and updates from our team at the circuit, as well as the latest photos from the race.
