Le Mans & Daytona – 24 hour contrasts


A lot of the cars that race here are the same but there are many differences between the Rolex 24 at Daytona and the 24 Hours of  Le Mans.

The race distance is the same, but that is where the similarities stop.

The biggest contrast is the amount of track distance per starter – traffic at Daytona is a much bigger issue because the track is so much shorter.

Much more of the race at Le Mans is also run in the dark. Check out our infographic below which highlights the key differences between the two amazing 24 hour events.
