With the coronavirus pandemic still requiring widespread restrictions across the globe, a difficult decision was taken last month to keep Le Mans closed to fans, meaning the approximate 280,000 fans who normally attend will have to make do this year with watching on from home.
The measures have also impacted on the racing itself, with a more condensed schedule leading up to the main event and a slightly reduced grid as a result of the removal of the reserve list, with teams operating in strict bio-bubble conditions to minimise the spread of Covid-19.
The revamped 2020/21 season sees Le Mans arrive as the penultimate round of the World Endurance Championship, but with double-points on offer, there is plenty to play for in the title battle. The LMP1 fight sees the two Toyotas arrive at Le Mans with just 12 points between them, though with the No 1 Rebellion line-up of Bruno Senna, Gustavo Menezes and Norman Nato 28 points off the leaders, they can put themselves firmly in the championship picture with a victory at Le Mans.
The championship battles across LMP2, GTE Pro and GTE Am are all well and truly alive, with United Autosports leading the way in LMP2 and Aston Martin, Porsche and Ferrari all in the mix in GTE Pro, though the GTE Am battle looks to be between the No 83 AF Corse Ferrari and the No 90 TF Sport Aston Martin.
