Le Mans 24 Hours (ル・マン トゥエンティフォー アワーズ), known in North America as Test Drive Le Mans is a racing game for the Sega Dreamcast published by Infogrames and developed by their Melbourne House studio, based upon the yearly 24 Hours of Le Mans race. It is not to be confused with Le Mans 24, a similar but unrelated game for Sega Model 3 arcade hardware, although coincidentally this game's Japanese release was handled by Sega.

The game was later brought to the PlayStation 2 in 2001, this time having the Le Mans 24 Hours name on all regions. A year later it was brought to Japanese audiences, once again by Sega.
