The 1961 24 Hours of Le Mans was the 29th Grand Prix of Endurance and took place on 10 and 11 June 1961. It was also the 4th round of the 1961 World SportsCar Championship. Ferrari and Maserati were the main title contenders, with Porsche an outside chance for the Championship.
Ferrari's competition soon wilted in the race – the Maseratis were fast but fragile. The Aston Martins, though reliable, couldn't match the Italian cars’ pace. In the end, it was a race between the two works team cars and the NART entry, And when the Rodriguez brothers’ engine blew with just two hours to go, it was a clear 1–2 victory for the Ferrari works team. A privateer Ferrari GT was third with an American-run Maserati fighting it way back up to fourth, a full 22 laps behind the winner.
Phil Hill and Olivier Gendebien, the 1958 winners, won again finishing three laps (37.86 km (23.53 mi)) ahead of their teammates, driving a Ferrari 250 TRI/61.
