Overview

Individuals and car clubs from all over Europe are invited to take part in the 2018 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 2018 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. There is ample food and drink available, stalls galore for browsing through the automobilia, exhibitions, car club displays and you can even get your hair cut! The paddocks are open to visit between racing and under the warm July sky the atmosphere is incredible.

All our Le Mans Classic 2018 prices include weekend admission to the track, a grandstand seat (unnumbered seating) and entry to the paddocks giving you unlimited access to all public areas of the Le Mans circuit.

 

An outstanding le Mans Classic event this year, with record crowds, great vintage racing and sunny weather!  The ninth edition of the Le Mans Classic returns in 2018!
