Ferrari has won the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the 36th time. The win was taken by the AF Corse 488 GTE, no. 51, driven by Alessandro Pier Guidi, James Calado and Daniel Serra. The victory is the 27th class win for the Prancing Horse, in addition to nine overall wins, the first one clinched 70 years ago courtesy of Luigi Chinetti and Lord Selsdon in the 166 MM bodied by Touring.
This marks the first victory in the GTE-Pro class for the 488 GTE in Le Mans, as indeed it is for all the three drivers involved. For Alessandro and James this rounds off the Super Season in the best possible manner. The last Ferrari and AF Corse team triumph was in the 2014 season, when it was Toni Vilander, Giancarlo Fisichella and Gianmaria Bruni who took the honours.
Ferrari also took a podium finish in the GTE-Am class thanks to the 488 GTE of JMW Motorsport driven bu Jeff Segal, Wei Lu and Rodrigo Baptista.
