Alpine F1 drivers Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso will be joining the party this Saturday ahead of the 89th running of the Le Mans 24 Hours.

The pair will take part in a parade with the double F1 World Champion taking the wheel of the marque’s Formula 1 car for a lap around the fabled venue.

Spain’s most famous race driver, a two-time Le Mans winner with Toyota Gazoo Racing, will head a parade dedicated to the French marque in the build-up to the race start, on Saturday.

Recent Hungarian Grand Prix winner Ocon will be alongside Alonso in an Alpine A110 GT4. They will be joined by other models, including the A110 Rally in the hands of works driver Manu Guigou and an A110S with Alpine CEO Laurent Rossi at the wheel.

Friday sees the running of the Hyperpole, where the top six qualifiers in each class will battle for top spot on the grid. More information here>>>
