LE MANS CLASSIC 2018 TIMETABLE

The 9th staging of Le Mans Classic has many surprises in store for visitors including an action-packed programme from 6th to 9th July comprising no fewer than 21 races and spectacular parades!

After Group C Racing in 2016, it’s Global Endurance Legends’ turn to make its debut in the Sarthe. This grid made up of GTs and prototypes, which raced in the Le Mans 24 Hours between 1990 and 2000, will give demonstration runs on Friday evening and Saturday morning enabling spectators to see cars like the McLaren F1 GTR, Audi R8, Peugeot 908, etc.

Another novelty: this year is the 70th anniversary of Porsche and Porsche France in collaboration with Peter Auto has assembled an exceptional field of 70 historic cars dating from 1952 to 1973. And Jaguar Classic Challenge is back again this year. Who’s going to follow in the footsteps of Andy Wallace victorious in 2016 in the D-Type that won the 1955 Le Mans 24 Hours driven by Hawthorn-Bueb?
