Over the years, the maximum number of cars to race at Le Mans has been limited to 56, but that is all set to change. Plans have been confirmed to build an extra four garages in time for 2016.
Four new garages will be built in time for next season’s 24 Hours of Le Mans in June. The President of the ACO, Pierre Fillion said that rather than building one or two garages in time for 2015, the ACO decided to implement a bigger project, and instead build four new garages for 2016. This means the number of entries is set to increase from 56 to 60 for the 84th running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans in June next year.
