And Lucas Luhr found himself visiting a Georgia county slammer for an evening.

But I think if we count that, there might be a VERY long list.

And I'm guessing the 70s and 80s have a long list of drivers/felons

I forgot Christophe Dechavanne (Venturi 500 LM 1993 with Laffite and Maisonneuve), a well known TV showman in France.

NSX_LeMans should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
When was the last time that the winning car at Le Mans hasn't neither tested or raced at Sebring?

I know that the Audis, Peugeot and the 919 did it, Bentley and BMW raced there too.
I don't know much about the development of 90's sportscars, so I don't really have the asnwer for this...

The current version of the 919 (2015-now) hasn't tested at Sebring. I would suggest that Porsche and Toyota rectify that next year, because of how much it helped Audi and Peugeot over the years.

Earl Bamber has raced twice at Le Mans and won both times. Is there anyone else with the same stats?

Bamber has raced three times, 2 in LMP1 and 1 in GTE.

Woolf Barnato has a good record on this, 3 races, 3 wins in a row.

TK first 3 races: 1 win 2 DNF
TK first 9 races: 7 victories 2 DNF

Makes the words " to finish first, first you have to finish" come to mind.
To finish first every time you finish is what made the legend.
