We've told you all there is to know about this year's most influential Le Mans competitors and all we have to do now is prepare the popcorn and let our better halves enjoy their weekend shopping as we get ready for a long motorsport-infused weekend.

But there's no point in knowing a lot of stuff about the LMP1 prototypes embarking on the famous endurance race if you can't spot them on the race track, where it matters most. Consider the issue resolved by this comprehensive Le Mans Spotter's Guide featuring info on all 56 cars, drivers, teams and engine details.

Also, you have access to each driver's FIA grading, Twitter accounts and hashtags, tires and even the pit garage where each car is stored and tended for.

The guide's creators even took their time to insert interesting info on the Le Mans competition, in general, something you could use to dominate your pals in a Le Mans-focused trivia contest.

For example, the race takes place on Circuit de la Sarthe, an 8.5-mile (13.6 km) track with 38 corners. In case you knew that, here's another one for you. The current race lap record (3.19.074) was set in 2010 by Loïc Duval, in a Peugeot 908HDi FAP, after two years earlier, Stéphan Sarrazin set the qualifying record of 3.18.513, also in a Peugeot 908HDi FAP.
