The 87th 24 Hours of Le Mans (French: 87e 24 Heures du Mans) is an automobile endurance event that will take place on 15 and 16 June 2019,[1] at the Circuit de la Sarthe, Le Mans, France. It will be the 87th running of the 24 Hour race organised by the Automobile Club de l'Ouest, and the final round of the 2018–19 FIA World Endurance Championship.

Automatic invitations[edit]

Automatic entry invitations are earned by teams that won their class in the previous running of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, or won championships in the European Le Mans Series, Asian Le Mans Series, and the Michelin GT3 Le Mans Cup. The second-place finisher in the European Le Mans Series LMGTE championship also earns an automatic invitation. Two participants from the WeatherTech SportsCar Championship are chosen by the series to be automatic entries by the ACO regardless of their performance or category. As invitations are granted to teams, they were allowed to change their cars from the previous year to the next, but not allowed to change their category. The LMGTE class invitations from the European and Asian Le Mans Series are allowed to choose between the Pro and Am categories. European Le Mans Series' LMP3 champion is required to field an entry in LMP2 while the Asian Le Mans Series LMP3 champion may choose between LMP2 or LMGTE Am. The Michelin Le Mans Cup GT3 champion is limited to the LMGTE Am category.
