But, before the big event, the official Test Day!
This weekend, in preparation for the final round of the FIA World Endurance Championship Super Season, the 62 entries take to the 13.62km track for the one and only official test day.
But what happens during the test weekend, and who can take part?
As a large part of the Circuit de la Sarthe is made up of public roads, this is a rare opportunity for everyone to test cars, drivers and systems ahead of the main event in two weeks. All 62 entries will be on track, together with the majority of the 186 drivers lined up to compete in the race.
Newcomers to Le Mans in 2019 The test day is obligatory for all entrants, and most particularly for drivers who have never raced before in the 24 Hours of Le Mans or who are not on the official List of Exempted Drivers, such as Stoffel Vandoorne.
These drivers must complete at least 10 laps minimum during Sunday's track sessions. This is in addition to the simulator training they have had to do prior to the test day.
When does it all happen?
The public roads are closed to traffic very early on Sunday morning 2nd June and will re-open around 19h30.
As well as a pit walk for fans, on Saturday at 16h00 the official group photo of all cars in the race will take place on the front straight.
