A second day of technical and administrative checks for the 2013 24 Hours of Le Mans, the third round of the FIA World Endurance Championship, takes place on Monday, 17th June.
Mon 17.06.13, 3:03PM
They start from 10:30h and go right through the day until the final car passes through at 17:30h.
Of the 34 cars due to be checked by the race’s officials, 18 are from the FIA World Endurance Championship including 24 Hours of Le Mans favourites Audi Sport, Aston Martin Racing, AF Corse, Larbre Competition and the first official Porsche factory GT team for many years.
In the French language, the process which takes place in the Place de la République in the centre of Le Mans is referred to as Le Pesage which means the ‘weigh-in’ although much more is checked on the LMP1, LMP2, LMGTE Pro and Am cars than just the weight.
Ensuring that the cars comply fully to the latest technical regulations, and that the drivers have the correct licenses and equipment necessary to compete, is vital and no car is authorised to take part in the event without first having passed by the three scrutineering stations. For more information about what happens at each of these stations, the ACO has an excellent breakdown here.
The first of the FIA World Endurance Championship cars to go through will be LMGTE Am’s No.57 Krohn Racing Ferrari 458 Italia at 11:10h, and the final two are the No.91 and 92 Porsche AG Team Manthey 911 RSRs. A full list is below.
