Le Mans 24h is the hardest race to win, you only get one shot at it every year.
The car needs to be fast (F1 technology), reliable (driven at full speed for 24 hours) and quickly rechargeable (running on track more than 75% of the time, stopping in the pits less than 25% of the time).
Competition is fierce with large companies from around the world investing heavily to win. You need both technical and commercial perfection to succeed.
