With under two weeks to go until the Ford GT returns to Le Mans, here’s a quick run down of all the ways you can watch the race:

Which car is which?

Ford has chosen to use the same red, white and blue livery for all 4 cars.  In order to tell the difference while watching the race, each car sports a different brightly colored mirror cap and windshield banner.

#66 in GREEN – Stefan Mücke, Olivier Pla, Billy Johnson

#67 in BLUE – Marino Franchitti, Andy Priaulx, Harry Tincknell

#68 in RED – Sébastien Bourdais, Joey Hand, Dirk Müller

#69 in YELLOW – Ryan Briscoe, Scott Dixon, Richard Westbrook

Additional Ways to Follow the Race

I highly recommend the official FIA WEC app.  It’s got a wide variety of in-car cams, live timing and scoring, and the race broadcast.  Works very well on a tablet.  It’s been reliable and useful so far in 2016.

Here’s a list of good social media, both official and unofficial:
