If you want to follow the action at the 24 Hours of Le Mans this weekend–which you should definitely do– there are several options.

Streaming:

There are will be a number of legal and illegal streams available, for US viewers one of the best bets is to start with Fox Sports GO, which will have the race in its entirety.

For international viewers you can either rely on the myriad of pirated streams that will pop up tomorrow morning, or you can stream it directly from the FIA for $11.25 USD. There is also an option to purchase streaming for the remainder of the World Endurance Championship.

You can also follow the Ford GT exclusively, Ford Performance will have live onboard and garage cameras streaming for the duration of the French endurance classic. Be sure to check out our handy Ford GT spotters guide.

Television:

In addition to its online stream, Fox Sports will also broadcast the race on FS1 and FS2:

FS1: 8:30 AM to 2:00 PM Saturday
FS2: 2:00 PM to 4:30 PM Saturday
FS2: 6:00 PM to 6:30 PM Saturday
FS2: 7:00 PM to 7:30 PM Saturday
FS2: 10:30 PM Saturday to 2:30 AM Sunday
FS1: 2:30 AM to 9:30 AM Sunday

Viewers in Europe can tune into Eurosport for the action.

Radio:

You can also go properly old school by listening along with the folks over at Radio Le Mans. Once upon a time RLM was the only way to follow the race through the night, it still remains one of the most insightful sources covering the event.

You can listen either at the Radio Le Mans website or through TuneIn Radio.

Live Timing:

Can’t get to a TV or computer, fine, you can follow live timing either on the FIA WEC website or you can download the official FIA WEC app for free on your smart phone.

It doesn’t matter how you follow the race, but make sure you do. With the Ford GT returning to Le Mans with a triumphant pole position, the BoP snafu in GTE Pro— not to mention the myriad of story lines developing across the other classes–Le Mans 2016 is going to be one for the ages.
