In case you somehow haven't heard, the 24 Hours of Le Mans is happening this weekend. The first qualifying session for the race just kicked off, and it seems every team wants to get as much track time as possible—even if it means causing a pit lane traffic jam.
Sanctioning bodies such as IMSA usually for each class participating in the race. This allows get adequate space between cars to set a qualifying time, without having to navigate through different-class competitors.
The organizers behind Le Mans don't subscribe to that method, as you'll see below. For the first qualifying session, cars from every class drove up to the pit exit hoping to be among the first out, causing a high-horsepower state of gridlock at the Circuit de la Sarthe. Not the best scenario for those touchy race clutches.
Eventually, the cars get on track, and the line thins out. If the race is as chaotic as this qualifying session, there's a lot to look forward to.
