Poll: Is the Le Mans 24 Hours the biggest race in motorsport?

The third leg of motorsport's unofficial triple crown takes place this weekend with the twice around the clock French enduro, but is it the biggest race?

In the space of a couple of weeks, three of the most iconic races in motorsport will have been held, with the Le Mans 24 Hours rounding out the so-called 'triple crown.'

The Monaco Grand Prix, Indianapolis 500 and Le Mans are regarded as the jewels in motorsport's crown, with the first two often held on the same Sunday at the end of May, with the 24 Hours following two weeks later.

To date, only one driver has won all three races outright, with Graham Hill scooping five Monaco wins, the 1966 success at the Brickyard before completing the treble in 1972 in France.

Many have come close, with the likes of Fernando Alonso and Juan Pablo Montoya needing a win at Indy and outright Le Mans victory on their respective CVs. 

But which of the three events is the biggest - or maybe, you believe another race takes that accolade - perhaps the Daytona 500, Bathurst 12 Hours or the Dakar Rally?

Let us know what you think by voting in the poll below and also in the comments!

How much damage can Ferrari and McLaren inflict with Red Bull fighting with one hand tied behind its back, did the Milton Keynes-based team re-sign Perez too soon? After a thoroughly entertaining Canadian GP, host Nick Golding is joined by Ian Parkes and Samuel Coop to analyse all things.
