Pista – IRON LYNX HIGHLIGHTS ‘DAY AND NIGHT’ FOR SPECIAL LE MANS 24 HOURS

 Lynx will run its #60 Lamborghini Huracán LMGT3 Evo 2 with a special one-off livery for this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours, taking place on June 15-16 to conclude what will be the team’s biggest week of the year. The theme for the new scheme surrounds the concept of ‘Day and Night’, which encapsulates one of the key features of long-distance endurance racing

The biggest week of the year
Across several days of track activity, beginning from June 9, the majority of Iron Lynx’s drivers will be in action. At the iconic Circuit de la Sarthe in France, crews from the FIA World Endurance Championship, IMSA Sportscar Championship, European Le Mans Series, Michelin Le Mans Cup, Ligier European Series and Lamborghini Super Trofeo Europe will all be taking to the roads. Elsewhere in the country, Iron Lynx and Iron Dames will be looking to build on their momentum in the French Rally Championship’s Vosges Rally.

On the other side of the world, the team’s Lamborghini Super Trofeo Asia racers will take to The Bend in Australia, a long circuit with a wide variety of corners. Additionally, the Iron Dames will also be in action in Formula Regional European Championship by Alpine at Zandvoort, while the youngest members of the project will be karting at Cremona and MotorLand Aragón.

It is a huge undertaking by the team to prepare all of these racing programmes for this week, especially with the Le Mans 24 Hours being the biggest event and with 15 drivers across five cars in action through the day and night cycle and a further 13 drivers in seven cars for the supporting races. 13 more drivers will be racing elsewhere globally under either the Iron Lynx or Iron Dames banner across the two weekends.

To put this mammoth campaign together, over 200 members of staff from the team have been hard at work. From management to engineering, mechanics, right through to media, marketing and hospitality, hundreds of hours of work have been spent in the run-up to the event and many more will be required throughout to achieve the best possible results on and off the track. Dozens more team members will also be at the forefront of the activities around the rest of the world, highlighting the depth, size and strength of the organisation globally.

Day and Night
As part of this year’s special Le Mans 24 Hours entry, the team will be highlighting ‘Day and Night’. The #60 entry will run with a one-off paint scheme for this race, which will include darker elements to the traditional bright yellow which has become synonymous with the entry over the past couple of years.

This highlights the test of endurance and the pressure put on every element of the team and the machinery throughout the entire event, from start to finish.

The team began its Le Mans story in the now-defunct LMGTE-Am category back in 2020, achieving a top-10 result in its first attempt. The following year, Iron Lynx took to the podium in the great race with third place, before a trickier race in 2022 followed. Last year, the Iron Dames #85 came so close to a podium after leading for much of the race. This year, the five entries will be the most Iron Lynx has operated at Le Mans, and it branches beyond a single category for the first time. Across the new LMGT3 category, LMP2 and Hypercar classes, the team will be vying for the top spots across the board.
