Eighteen participations, nine wins, five other podium finishes and only four retirements: with such an extraordinary track record, who better to serve as ambassador for the 24 Hours of Le Mans centenary than Tom Kristensen? Such wrote the ACO, the organizer of the 24 Hours of Le Mans, as they announced TK as the Grand Marshall of the Centenary Race.
In this role, Tom will attend all events related to the 100th anniversary celebration, such as the presentation at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance last August of the one-of-a-kind bronze trophy destined for the winning team at Le Mans 2023. Tom will also start the centenary race by waiving the flag. In anticipation of the upcoming festivities, let’s leave the last word to the legend, Tom Kristensen: “25 years on…I was not prepared for all of this, but I had a great team around me and this is what you need here. People respect Le Mans and the centenary, it is a valuable milestone of an amazing heritage.”
