I just wanted to give my annual shoutout to truly my favorite sporting event of the year, the 24 Hours of Le Mans. This is, by far, the greatest motor race in the world as some of the best drivers and most amazing cars go from day into the night and back into day again.
Here’s some videos from years past to give you an idea of what it’s all about.

Speed Channel will have live coverage on TV for 18 of the 24 hours, and the remaining bit of it on its website, speedtv.com.
Of course, no one (not even me) watches the whole thing, but if you’re going to watch a few minutes of it, aim for dusk or nighttime periods.
