Motorcycle racing star and TNT Sports pundit Sylvain Guintoli is aiming to become the first person to win the prestigious Le Mans 24-Hour race on both two and four wheels.

The 2021 World Endurance and 2014 World Superbike champion and former BSB star has already claimed victory on a motorcycle, and will now tackle the gruelling race with Steller Motorsport, driving a Duqueine-built LMP3 (Le Mans Prototype) car.

In a post on social media, the 41-year-old French rider (who’s also a test rider for the BMW World Superbike team) said: “I want to be the first driver to win the Le Mans 24-Hours on both bikes and cars. The bike version is already conquered, but the journey with cars starts right now.”

Guintoli will be partnered with former British GT champion Sennan Fielding. The 2024 event takes place at the Le Mans circuit in France on June 12-16.

Sunday-only tickets are already sold out but two-day passes are still available. Visit the Le Mans website for more.
