Thank you to everyone who supported and downloaded the Nissan 24 Heures du Mans Spotter Guide during the past couple of weeks.
Despite an attempt of a competitor to produce a rival guide (which ultimately failed to be released!) we broke all records on SpotterGuides.com for total number of downloads in a single day, before AND then during the race, beating our total 2012 downloads before the race and increasing our downloads by 20% at time of publication.
The biggest, most detailed Spotter Guide produced, the 2013 edition of the 24 Heures du Mans, sponsored by Nissan, is now online to download. Version 1 of the guide is available for those travelling to the event for Scrutineering. The guide will then be updated early next week, so pop back them if you don’t leave for a few days.
The Nissan 24 Heures du Mans Spotter Guide is bigger than ever with an extra resource page with circuit map, current WEC points, timetable and useful links. On the main guide pages, we have the usual car and team info, including Tyres, Fuel, Class and Engine. New for 2013 are FIA/ACO Driver Grading icons and Le Mans garage numbers.
