This weekend is the 24 Hours of Le Mans, where Nissan is set to write history by becoming the first team to complete a lap of a sanctioned motorsport event on electric power alone, using its ZEOD RC plug-in hybrid race car. But that’s not all Nissan has up its sleeve for this weekend’s race.

The Japanese automaker will also be broadcasting live from Le Mans’ Circuit de la Sarthe—throughout the race. The broadcast will be shown on the YouTube channel of Nissan’s performance arm NISMO, accessible at NISMO.TV, and will feature a six-presenter lineup.

The broadcast will also show feeds from two race car-mounted cameras (one on the ZEOD RC and another on a Nissan-powered LMP2), a live studio and a live roaming camera taking viewers in the pits, garages and fan areas.

The Motor Authority team is also at Le Mans and will be bringing you full coverage throughout the weekend (you can stay up to date by visiting our Le Mans dedicated hub). The race starts at 3 p.m. local time (9 a.m. Eastern) on Saturday, June 14.
