Le Mans 24 Hours - Starting grid

The starting grid for the 81st running of the Le Mans 24 Hours race, including a number of penalties handed down to teams since qualifying.
The Le Mans 24 Hours race will get underway in tricky conditions, with light rain and drizzle timing its arrival for just 15 minutes before the world's premier endurance racing event was due to get underway.

There had been some early revisions to the starting grid order, with 15 cars receiving demotions because of not completing all the required number of laps within the 110 per cent time during the week. The biggest casualty in the LMP1 class is the #21 Strakka HPD ARX 03c (Leventis/Watts/Kane) which loses its eighth place on the grid and has been sent back to 36th.

Penalised in the LMP2 class are the #46 Thiriet Oreca 03 (demoted from 19th to 37th), #31 Lotus T128 (down from 24th to 38th) and the #28 Gulf Racing Lola B12/80 (losing 12 positions from 27th to 39th). Other LMP2 cars affected are the #39 DKR Lola B11/40 (moved from 36th to 41st) and the #40 Boutsen Oreca 03 (losing five spots from 37th for 42nd.) That will put them right in the middle of slower GTE-Pro traffic at the start.

The #98 AMR Vantage V8 was the only GTE-Pro car affected (down from 33rd to 40th) while eight GTE-Am cars were penalised but mostly only by a couple of positions.
