Le Mans Classic

Nowhere is there such a large gathering of classic cars and enthusiasts than at the biennial Le Mans Classic.

The Le Mans Classic started in 2002, held in the grounds of Le Mans 24 hour race. Following on from the postponement of the event in 2020 and 2021, the 2022 Le Mans Classic will be the 10th edition.

Individuals and car clubs from all over Europe are invited to take part in the 2022 Le Mans Classic by forming, on the infield, a huge display of classic machinery all on view to the admiring public.

Practice for the Le Mans Classic 2022 begins on Friday afternoon when each grid is on track for a daytime and a night time session, going on until the early hours. Saturday morning is given over to car clubs doing track laps and demonstrations before the serious business of the Le Mans Classic begins at the traditional time of 1600 hours. The first race for each grid begins ears of corn style, which is a wonderful sight. Each grid will race three times during the 24 hours, on the full Le Mans circuit and a driver change during each stint is obligatory.

Around the Le Mans track there's also plenty going on, with ample food and drink available, stalls galore for browsing through the automobilia, exhibitions and car club displays. The paddocks are open to visit between racing and under the warm July sky the atmosphere is incredible.
