Based on the legendary "24 Hours of Le Mans" endurance race, Test Drive: Le Mans lets you compete in the day-long event in its entirety, as well as giving you the option to compete in shorter versions of the race. Authentic cars and several other tracks round out the experience.
The PC and Playstation versions were released in March 2000 and developed by Eutechnyx. The Dreamcast game, though still published by Infogrames, was developed from scratch by Melbourne House and released in November 2000. The Dreamcast version has two fewer tracks, lacking the Road Atlanta and Road Atlanta National courses.
In 2001, Melbourne House developed a port of the Dreamcast game for the PS2. This version was also ported to the PC in 2002, under the name "Le Mans 24 Hours", by Torus. This name had been used for all markets outside North America for the previous games.
