|It takes something special to drive more than 3,000 miles in a single day as quickly as possible. But since 1923, that's exactly what teams have done at France's annual 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race.|
It's the oldest still-active auto competition of its kind. When it kicks off this weekend, 60 teams of three drivers will cover nearly 3,300 miles.
The race format is simple: Drive a car for 24 hours and complete as many laps as possible.
|The Circuit de la Sarthe is a combination of permanent track connected to public streets. It is 8.5 miles long. The 2015 winners went around it 395 times. The Porsche's average speed was 140 miles per hour.|
