FROM MOTOR TREND Anything that’s been around for 100 years is always worth celebrating, and arguably the greatest race in the history of motorsports—the famed 24 Hours of Le Mans—has reached that lofty milestone. While the race itself hasn’t been run for 100 consecutive years (there were a few interruptions, most notably during WWII), the first running of Le Mans took place way back in 1923.

Besides the anniversary hoopla, the 2023 Le Mans event, which is taking place the weekend of June 10-11, is also notable as it will be the first real competition for the World Endurance Championship series Le Mans Hypercar class, with a total of 16 different cars from seven different manufacturers, including entries from Cadillac, Ferrari, and Porsche. They will do battle with the mighty Toyota GR010 Hybrid, which has dominated the premier Hypercar class since its debut in 2021 and will be gunning for its third straight overall Le Mans victory.

In addition to the Hypercar class, the rest of the 2023 24 Hours of Le Mans field, including LMP2 and LMGTE AM (the class where the Corvette Racing Corvette C8.R will compete against cars from Aston Martin, Porsche, and Ferrari), will also compete for class victories. And this year there’s also a unique “Innovative” class entry by the American Hendrick Motorsports team, with a special Chevy Camaro ZL1 driven by a trio including American racing legend Jimmie Johnson.

This year’s race—and the pageantry that goes along with the Le Mans Centenary—is shaping up to be one of the best in years and motorsports fans by the millions will be watching when the green flag drops and the cars begin roaring around the Circuit de la Sarthe. Once again, MotorTrend+ as well as the MotorTrend TV channel will be the EXCLUSIVE SPOT IN THE U.S. and Canada where fans will be able to stream and watch the full 24 Hours of Le Mans in its entirety, from qualifying to race end.
