This year's field at the top of the 24 Hours of Le Mans will feature some big names — Porsche, Audi, Toyota — but keep your eye on Nicolas Perrin. He used to work in F1, and now he's designing an open-source LMP1 car.
There have always been people in motorsports who turned all conventions upside down, breaking new grounds. Sometimes it's in-your-face visible, sometimes it's modestly subtle. Engineer Nicolas Perrin is doing a quiet revolution for all of us.
Earlier I argued how the challenge of the 24 Hours of Le Mans is accessible for everyone. You can team up with other people and race competitively in various video games, or you can just visit the spot and drive around on the actual circuit. Otherwise - if you are just part of the audience - you surely get the most racing available for your money from the most technologically advanced race cars on the planet.
