Latest Guide: AERO Sustainable Paint Technology 2020 Le Mans Spotter Guide
Latest update: V2.0 – Wednesday 16th September (1945 CET)
No good having an inaccurate guide….
The arrival of the official guide and the increasing challenges of obtaining a sponsor has made the guides a challenging and unenjoyable project in recent years.
The #LM24 guides have been an amazing success with upwards of 170,000 downloads at its peak. A huge thank you to YOU once again for your support, downloads and additonal exposure. I also wanted to say a huge thank you to the other sponsors who have been partners over that time including AERO, Dunlop and Nissan.
Also, a big shout out to all the media sites who have promoted the guide over the years. A long list, but Dailysportscar, Radio Le Mans, Marshall Pruett and Sportscar365 have always assisted and more recently r/WEC have been banging the drum massively.
IMSA guides WILL continue and looking to expand into other series in 2022 as we hopefully get back to some normaility. The support in the IMSA paddock for the guides is awesome. EVERY team helps and assists, realizing getting their partners and livery in the hands of hundreds of thousands of fans actually helps their exposure.
Many thanks for your support, past, present and future
The original Le Mans Spotter Guide returns for a 14th year ready for an unusual weekend of racing in France thanks to the support of long term Andy Blackmore Design client AERO Sustainable Paint Technology. Obtaining sponsorship during these times isn’t easy, so special thanks to AERO.
The two page guide features all 59 cars are shown in the guide in detail, thanks to the help of the majority of teams. A couple (Graff, Porsche, AF Corse, Duqueline, Panis to be 100% confirmed). The guide will be updated as required. With extensive COVID testing, driver line-ups may have to change. Change list will be displayed at the bottom of the page.
Version 2 of the guide was updated on Friday morning with the addition of Patrick Pilet in the #17 IDEC Oreca. Prior to that, the guide had new livery updated following Scrutineering and the Grid Photo. Main change is #3 Rebellion, which is now identical to its sister car with an asymetric White (left) and Black (right) livery. Aside from any driver changes (all will be on site and have passed COVID tests), this should be now final .
As with previous years, the guide will feature all the information you need. From Chassis details to driver grading and social media addresses for each team, everything is covered making this the one resource to have at your fingertips.
NOTE: PLEASE FEEL FREE TO LINK TO THIS PAGE, not the PDF as the filename will change (and its also harder to capture download numbers).
I am often asked how people can assist with support of the Spotter Guides. Best thing for me is to follow AERO on social media here:-
In addition, after many requests, I now have a Ko-fi button on the right hand side, where you can buy me a virtual coffee!
Thanks you to all the media who continue to support and promote the guides. Additional thanks to Shea Adam and Paul Marquardt for proof reading the guides.
