A race like no other
A race around the clock
Shrouded in myth
Shrouded in legacy

Three to drive
But a team beyond
Sun goes up
Lights go out

Ferrari, Toyota
Ford and Porsche
Aston, Nissan
Oreca and more

Dunlop, Mulsanne, esses and straights
Foot to the floor forevermore
Pit stops and fixes
Crashes and fires

The sun goes down
Full beams go on
The race continues
All night long

The sun comes up
The mist clears off
Who’s left now?
Many are not

Sun beams down
Changes a plenty
More drama still yet to come
Lap by lap with all our might

The clock ticks down
And across the line
The checkered flag waves
Another winner crowned


Race suit on
Gloves pulled up
Helmet snug
Fire up

Visor down
Right foot too
Slowly round
To the grid we go

Line up right
Watch the light
Not a stare just a look
For the flicker of a change

Off we go
Left or right
Which way to move
Squeeze in nicely, just enough room

Up the inside
A jink of steering, a dab of brake
Slide through smoothly
That’s how it’s done

Hold the line
Don’t let them pass
Lap after lap
Wait for the flag

The chequers wave
We punch the air
On the top step we stand
Trophy held up, we’re very proud
