Ferrari team holding up trophies at 24 Hours of Le Mans

After more than 50 years, Ferrari has returned to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, and what a way to make history on the event’s 100th anniversary! Not only did Ferrari compete in this grueling and prestigious race, but the team came back victorious with a win led by Alessandro Pier Guidi and his teammates that shared the number 51 car: James Calado and Antonio Giovinazzi.

This race is a symbol of endurance and persistence and the Ferrari Le Mans drivers showed up with all that and more in this exciting competition where drivers and vehicles alike, were tested for 24 hours straight. But that didn’t stop the Ferrari team from putting in their absolute all no matter what the other drivers or the weather threw at them. Even the rain that had showered the track did nothing to deter the fight for the top spot.

24 Hours of Le Mans and Ferrari Coming Together

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is an annual race held in none other than the town of Le Mans and is considered one of the world’s most distinguished and reputable races alongside the Monaco Grand Prix and Indianapolis 500. In this race, drivers are fighting against the clock to cover the most distance in order to earn that #1 title.

Back in 1965, Ferrari had been riding the high with six consecutive wins at the 24 Hours of Le Mans, but that year, the #1 podium win had been bittersweet as it had been the last. Until now. And not only had Ferrari measured up to and surpassed Toyota and their racing team – their long-time rivals – but Ferrari proved their prowess and skill despite the years away. Time didn’t discourage this awe-inspiring team in the least. In fact, it only improved the Ferrari racing mastery and the Ferrari Le Mans hypercar: the 499P.
