The GTE Class of Le Mans this year received great attention with the most competitive 5 manufacturers' entries; Aston Martin, Ferrari, Porsche, Corvette and Ford which came back to Le Mans on the 50th anniversary of their win in 1966.

Aston Martin Racing had two GTE pro entries and two GTE-Am.
The race was conducted under a safety car during the first 1 hour or so due to heavy rain and nobody could guess what would happen.
For 23 hours and 55minutes, this year's race belonged to TOYOTA car #6 until they stopped with a powertrain trouble at the last moment. We all thought we could witness a long-waited Le Mans over all victory of Japanese car, Porsche claimed their championship in the end.
