Le Mans 2016. Close-up of spare Dunlop wet tyres in a team's garage during the 2016 Le Mans 24 hrs race. The 24 Hours of Le Mans (or simply Le Mans) is the world's oldest active endurance sports car race. It has been held annually since 1923 near the town of Le Mans, France. Wet tyres have grooves to disperse water and reduce the chance of aquaplaning, improving grip in wet/rainy conditions. Photographed on 18th June 2016.
