24 Hours of Le Mans odds: Porsche leading the Hypercar charge

The wait is almost over for the 92nd 24 Hours of Le Mans, with all the action getting underway at 15:00 on Saturday.

One of the three races that form the Triple Crown of Motorsport, all eyes will be on the famous Circuit de la Sarthe this weekend.

Last year's 24 Hours of Le Mans was won by the trio of James Calado (GBR), Antonio Giovinazzi (ITA) and Alessandro Pier Guidi (ITA) for Ferrari-AF Corse, but, having failed to win a race in the 2024 World Endurance Championship, they are not the favourites this time around to retain their title.

Here’s a closer look at the contenders in the Hypercar race to claim one of the biggest prizes in motorsport at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2024.

Porsche Penske Motorsport No.06 - 7/2

Porsche Penske Motorsport have been impressive throughout the World Endurance Championship this year.

Managing to earn pole position and going on to claim the win at 1812km in Qatar, Porsche look like the car to beat this season.

The No.06 car has not finished any lower than second place all season and is why the trio of Kevin Estre (FRA), Andre Lotterer (DEU) and Laurens Vanthoor (BEL) are the 7/2 favourites to claim the victory at Le Mans this weekend.

Toyota Gazoo Racing No.07 - 4/1

Hoping to challenge the Porsches at Le Mans this year are Toyota Gazoo Racing, with their No.07 car driven by Jose Maria Lopez (ARG), Kamui Kobayashi (JPN) and Nyck de Vries (NLD).

Despite a win for the team at Imola, it has been an otherwise disappointing start to the season for an outfit who were so dominant in the competition.

Toyota Gazoo Racing did finish runners-up to Ferrari at Le Mans 2023 and will be hoping they can overcome the final hurdle this time around.

British racer Mike Conway was set to race in the No.07 car, but he suffered fractured ribs and collar bone in a recent cycling accident and will be playing no part in the event this year.

Conway’s seat has been taken by the Argentinian Lopez.

Porsche Penske Motorsport No.05 - 9/2

Driving in the No.05 car this year will be Matt Campbell (AUS), Michael Christensen (DNK) and Frederic Makowiecki (FRA).

The trio have been lightning quick this year and should certainly be in the mix when it comes to the top Porsche teams at the business end of the race on Sunday afternoon.

Toyota Gazoo Racing No.08 - 5/1

When it came to testing, the Toyota Gazoo Racing No.08 was the only non-Porsche to finish in the top four.

That will give drivers Sebastien Buemi (CHE), Brendon Hartley (NZL) and Ryo Hirakawa (JPN) hope of causing an upset against the more-fancied Porsches at Le Mans.

Porsche Penske Motorsport No.04 - 7/1

Porsche were the ones who really set the tone in testing with the No.06 setting the fastest time of 3:26.907.

That was closely filled by their sister No.04 car, which is also expected to be a contender.

With the trio of Mathieu Jaminet (FRA), Felipe Nasr (BRA) and Nick Tany (GBR) behind the wheel, Porsche No.04 will be hoping to get one over on their rivals and fellow team-mates to claim the victory on Sunday.

Ferrari AF Corse No.50 - 7/1

Antonio Fuoco (ITA), Miguel Molina (ESP) and Nicklas Nielsen (DNK) form the trio in the No.50 car, who are shorter odds than last year’s winners to claim the victory this weekend.

Ferrari finished in fifth in testing and will need to improve in the race if they are to challenge the more-fancied teams.

Ferrari AF Corse No.51 - 8/1

Last year’s winning car returns with Pier Guidi, Calado and Giovinazzi again teaming up in the No.51.

After the high of coming out on top last season, Ferrari have fallen behind as their rivals at Porsche and Toyota have made significant improvements.

The trio in the No.51 will have to do something special to cause a shock and retain their title at Le Mans this time around.
