02nd July 2024

What an incredible month June was! The 92nd edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans will forever go down in history! The sight and sound of a record grid of Hypercars accompanied by LMP2 and GT3 charging off into the 24 hours was spinetingling!

Ferrari sealed back-to-back victories at Circuit de la Sarthe – this time with the #50 car claiming a popular win as the clock struck 16:00 local time. Porsche retuned to GT dominance with the win in the GT3 category while United Autosports reigned supreme in the LMP2 class. Meanwhile in the Fan Village over 3,000 race fans set a lap of the track themselves, with young and old enjoying the free Simulator Experience presented by Thrustmaster.

In the game, the June update dropped during Le Mans week and not only featured a new Race Start system, Radar, Replays, Driver Labels and a whole host of fixes and updates – it also provided the first look at the 2024 season content – which has been a topic high on the community wishlist for Le Mans Ultimate fans.

The first piece of the 2024 season jigsaw was put in place, when the BMW M Hybrid V8 was released as the first new car coming to Le Mans Ultimate. The first new Hypercar is free to download via Steam. Make sure you do so if you haven’t already!

Joining the German Hypercar was an array of new liveries for all the 2024 Hypercars currently in the game – these are also free to all players as part of the June update and includes the menacing black Toyota GR010, eye-catching yellow AF Corse Ferrari 499P and retro themed Porsche 963 from Proton Competition to name but a few.

What comes next?

Following the arrival of the free 2024 liveries for existing Hypercars and new BMW Hypercar DLC, the first of the 2024 paid DLC packs will go on sale later this month. We will give you one clue, it will include Imola (Autodromo Internazionale Enzo e Dino Ferrari di Imola) and the remainder of the first DLC pack will be announced very shortly.

The 2024 content will be spilt across four individual packs, including the July drop, and will also be offered as a 2024 Season Pass bundling all paid content at a discounted rate. In total, it will include a further four Hypercars, four new circuits and seven GT3 cars.

Wondering why only seven GT3 cars when there are nine currently on the FIA WEC grid? We will be gifting two free GT3 cars to all Early Access players, so everyone can experience the latest category in the championship. We’ll also be updating the LMP2 cars with the liveries from the 2024 24 Hours of Le Mans – however, both the GT3 cars and the liveries are not expected to be available until right at the end of the year as before then we’ll be completing the mouth-watering Hypercar grid with the new manufacturers.

Regardless of whether or not you purchase any 2024 packs, you’ll be able to race against the 2024 grid in Le Mans Ultimate. Further information on pricing, content and the discounted Season Pass will be made available ahead of the first release very soon.
