384 laps or 5,230km - that's how much the winning car of the 2016 24 Hours of Le Mans drove. To say that the race is demanding is a bit of an understatement. Taking place at the Circuit de la Sarthe, competing cars and their drivers have to race for an entire day at speeds over 300kmph. But not everything is serious at one of the biggest motorsport events of the year. Parades, exhibitions, food - the list goes on. Rather, calling it a motorsport festival sounds more apt. Here's a small collection of the moments we documented at one of the most amazing events one can attend.
