LITTLE BIG MANS

Value has nothing to do with you age, passion neither. For one hundred or so kids, from 7 to 12 years old, the dream has come true.

With a "Le Mans style" start just in front of the grandstands, the budding drivers from all over the world leap into their racing cars encouraged by a standing ovation from the public! These hundred or so mini replicas of the racing cars entered in the Little Big Mans are displayed in their own paddock specially dedicated to the kids, activities included.

The cars, produced in limited numbers or as one-offs, are powered by an internal combustion or electric engine and, for the most part, are faithful replicas of cars that have raced in the Le Mans 24 Hours. Among them are several Ferrari 330/P2s, Ford GT 40s, Chevrolet Corvettes, BMW 328s, Type 35 Bugattis, Porsche 550s, D-Type Jaguars, etc.

On Saturday 7th July in the early afternoon, the young drivers will set off for a lap of the Bugatti circuit after a Le Mans-type start. On Sunday, they will get back behind the wheel to do a tour of the Le Mans Classic village. This event, which is great fun for young and old alike, will end with a prize giving ceremony in the village.
