The build-up to Le Mans 24 Hours continued on Tuesday (2nd June) with nine teams getting the chance for additional practice sessions, this time on the Le Mans Bugatti circuit layout.

The two sessions were not recorded and none of the teams suffered any incidents, with the day used purely as a fine-tuning exercise.

The big four LMP1 teams took to the Le Mans Grand Prix track; three Audi R18 e-tron quattros, two Toyota TS040 Hybrids, three Porsche 919 Hybrids and the number 22 Nissan GT-R LM NISMO. Two Rebellion R-One-AERs LMP1 cars were also present at the test.

In the LMP2 category OAK Racing ran its two Ligier JS P2-HPD machines and they were joined by Signatech Alpine, Russian outfit SMP Racing and KCMG's Oreca 05-Nissan.

None of the LM GTE-Pro or LM GTE-Am teams were involved in the extra test.

Ralf Juttner, Audi Sport Joest team manager, says they used the day to carry out typical checks after taking apart and rebuilding its LMP1 machines since the official Le Mans test day last Sunday.

"We were just verifying that everything's okay," Juttner explained. "It wasn't a test day, just a fettling-in exercise to check all the on-board systems in the car."

All the Le Mans teams will now prepare for scrutineering next Sunday (7th June) ahead of the prestigious endurance race scheduled for the 13-14 June.
