Le Mans Classic 2025

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

The Le Mans Classic started in 2002, held on the grounds of the Le Mans 24-hour race using the full 24-hour Circuit de la Sarthe. Following on from the welcome return of the event in 2022 after a disrupted 2020 and 2021, the 2023 Le Mans Classic was the 11th edition and celebrated the 100th anniversary of the ‘Great Race’.

Individuals and car clubs from all over Europe are invited to take part in the 2025 Le Mans Classic by forming, on the infield, a huge display of classic machinery all on view to the admiring public. 2025 will be the year to be there to join in the planned celebrations of this landmark year.

The event starts on Thursday with the practice for the Le Mans Classic 2025 beginning on Friday afternoon when each grid is on track for a daytime and a nighttime 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 Summer sky the atmosphere is incredible.
