The 24 Hours of Le Mans live streams started with drama in the warm-ups today. Franck Mailleux's #709 Glickenhaus 007 LMH hit a halt before its first lap was in the books, off of a reportedly faulty traction control sensor. 

24 Hours of Le Mans live streams: TV schedule, dates

The 24 Hours of Le Mans is slated for today (Saturday, June 11), starting at 10 a.m. ET / 7 a.m. PT / 3 p.m. BST.
► U.S. — MotorTrend via Sling TV (opens in new tab)
► U.K. — Discovery Plus (opens in new tab)
► Watch anywhere — Try ExpressVPN 100% risk free (opens in new tab)

Soon thereafter, Nick Tandy's #64 Corvette C8.R had a driveline issue that was fixed in the pit, Nico Muller's #10 Vector Sport LMP2 Oreca 07 was on the gravel and Alexandre Cougnaud hit an off. Unsurprisingly, it beame with a full-course almost yellow period. 

Toyota, which stands tall after four straight victories, has Alpine and Glickenhaus Hypercars on its tail, looking to stop a fifth straight W.

And then there's next year to worry about, as increased competition is expected for the Circuit de la Sarthe in 2023. But that's a problem for another day. This year, we look at the 24 Hours of Le Mans 2022 as a return to form, as a full audience will attend this year with no restrictions.

Oh, and about Toyota. They've locked out the front row of the grid here, with Brendan Hartley leading Kamui Kobayashi in the 1-2. Alpine are third, with Glickenhaus in fourth and fifth on the grid.

Considered the "swing" point of the WEC championship because it has 50 points on the line, the 24 Hours of Le Mans is as important as it is prestigious.

You'll find the full schedule for all the events below. Read on and we'll show you how to watch the 24 Hours of Le Mans live streams from wherever you are.

How to watch the 24 Hours of Le Mans anywhere on Earth

It's natural that you might want to watch the 24 Hours of Le Mans live streams from your home country, but what if you're not there when it's on?

Look no further than a VPN, or virtual private network. A VPN makes it look as if you're surfing the web from your home country, rather than the one you're in. That means you can access the streaming services you already pay for, from anywhere on Earth. Or anywhere that has an internet connection, at least.

They're totally legal, inexpensive and easy to use. We've tested lots of the best VPN services and our favorite right now is ExpressVPN (opens in new tab). It's fast, works on loads of devices and even offers a 30-day money-back guarantee. 

Safety, speed and simplicity combine to make ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) our favorite VPN service. It's also compatible with loads of devices and there's a 30-day money-back guarantee if you want to try it out.

Using a VPN is incredibly simple.

1. Install the VPN of your choice. As we've said, ExpressVPN (opens in new tab) is our favorite.

2. Choose the location you wish to connect to in the VPN app. For instance if you're in the U.S. and want to view an Australian service, you'd select Australia from the list.

3. Sit back and enjoy the action. Head to 9Now or another website and watch the tennis.

This is a problem. Both Eurosport and Discovery Plus aren't available in Australia, and it doesn't look like the 24 Hours of Le Mans live streams will be streaming down under. We're trying to find if there's any other option, and will update this story if we get one.
