The 24 Hours of Le Mans offered us a fabulous spectacle for its centenary edition. It was a sell-out event that took place in front of no fewer than 325,000 spectators and the start was given by one of the biggest stars in the history of sport, basketball player, LeBron James. It has to be said that there was a bumper field on the grid with, in particular, five major manufacturers in the top-tier category, which had not been seen since 1999. Their cars were driven by stars including 13 former winners, 18 former F1 drivers and two victors of the Indianapolis 500.

The Authors :

Thibaut Villemant has been a car buff ever since he was a kid and attended his first 24 Hours of Le Mans aged five! After studying at Nanterre University in the Parisian region, he joined AutoHebdo in 2009. He became a leading reporter and assistant chief editor up until June 2021. During those years Jean-Marc Teissedre took him under his wing and in 2014 asked him to join the team of writers working on the official annual of the Sarthe twice-round-the-clock race. Today, Thibaut works as a consultant for the L’Équipe TV  channel on the WEC races - including the 24 Hours of Le Mans - while collaborating with the benchmark site Endurance-Info.com and hosting a Youtube channel dedicated to car enthusiasts called Once Upon A Car.

Scale-models led the young teacher to discover his true vocation and he became one of the best – if not the best – endurance racing specialists. His new calling coincided – and it was no coincidence – with the launch of AutoHebdo in 1976! Jean-Marc Teissedre remained faithful to the magazine throughout his career and it made him into a major figure in the milieu. However, his day job didn’t prevent him from investing his talent and enthusiasm in all the major books dedicated to his speciality, including this annual since 1978 on which he’s worked with the late Christian Moity, Alain Bienvenue and Thibaut Villemant. In addition to his rigour as a true professional he brings the meticulousness of a model maker, which he’s always been, to his work, as he also created the monthly revue Auto Modelisme and only relinquished the role of its chief editor a short time ago.
