Construction has begun on new pit garages at Le Mans that will see an eventual expansion to a 60-car field in the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

Announced in June, an additional four garages are being built at pit out, at the former location of Parc Ferme.

Next year’s race will see a 58-car starting field, with 60 cars permitted to take part in the French endurance classic beginning in 2017.

Despite the additional entries, the ACO’s “Garage 56” concept will keep its name, with Frederic Sausset and a biogas-powered WR already confirmed as the experimental entries for the next two years.

Additional track work, meanwhile, is also being done at the Porsche Curves, as well as construction of a new public road that will bypass Indianapolis Corner to Arnage, which had previously been public road.
