The 1995 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 63rd Grand Prix of Endurance, and took place on 17 and 18 June 1995.

Race

The 1995 race was won by a McLaren F1 GTR entered in the GT1 category. The car was already well known for dominating the BPR Global GT Series with customer teams, but the car that won was actually the initial GTR prototype that was on loan to Kokusai Kaihatsu Racing. Mario Andretti's Courage finished second, having been the sentimental favourite of many in the run-up to the race. However the reliability of the production-based McLaren helped it defeat the much faster Le Mans prototypes.

The top three spots in GT2 were taken by Honda NS X, Chevrolet Corvette, and Chevrolet Corvette. The class was showing competitive diversity unlike equivalent classes dominated by the Porsche 911 platform since the middle 1970s.
