    This year’s running of the French classic is going to be one to savour with the return of Porsche and Mark Webber in their line-up.

    Rivals Audi have now announced their line-up for the race with Lucas di Grassi taking the place of the retired Allan McNish.

    Spa 6 Hours and Le Mans 24 Hours
    Lucas di Grassi/Loïc Duval/Tom Kristensen
    Marcel Fässler/Andre Lotterer/Benoit Treuyer
    Filipe Albuquerque/Marco Bonanomi/Oliver Jarvis*

    All other races of the 2014 FIA World Endurance Championship (WEC)
    Lucas di Grassi/Loïc Duval/Tom Kristensen (BR/F/DK)
    Marcel Fässler/Andre Lotterer/Benoit Treluyer (CH/D/F)

    *subject to confirmation by the Selection Committee of the ACO and the FIA

    I’d like to have seen Lotterer and Kristensen in the same car.

    For anyone going to this, make sure you head over to St Saturnin on the Friday before the race, for the Classic British Welcome car show. This year they’re featuring Porsche as the guest car club, so should be some incredible machinery on show.

    What’s happening with Marc Gene now that he’s not running for Audi at Le Mans?

    Porsche have announced their driver pairings today, and it’s not bad for a number 20 driver:
    Car 14: Romain Dumas/Neel Jani/Marc Lieb
    Car 20: Timo Bernhard/Brendon Hartley/Mark Webber

    14, 20. 20,14. 2014. Maybe. One Porsche (936 in 1976) won Le Mans with number 20.
