PHARRELL WILLIAMS

On 9th July at 16:00 American star, Pharrell Williams, singer, song writer, composer and producer of many successful hits (including his famous Happy, the international Song of the Year at the 2014 NRJ Music Awards) will gave the start of the 8th Le Mans Classic.

Pharrell Williams is well-known for being a lover of beautiful cars and he owns a few with a preference for Supercars. The singer is also a great motor racing fan, and he attended the 2015 Monaco Formula 1 Grand Prix where he had concluded an agreement with the Lotus team. His name, as well as his label I am OTHER, was on both cars.

This coming Saturday, the international star, friend of the Richard Mille watch brand (main partner of le Mans Classic), will have all the time in the world to discover the history of the Le Mans 24 Hours at the 8th Le Mans Classic. This benchmark event in the universe of historic races, whose name had acquired international renown, will give more than 550 cars telling the story of this incredible event, the opportunity to race on the big Le Mans 24-Hours circuit. Two years ago at the 7th Le Mans Classic the 110 000-spectator barrier was broken. They all came to enjoy this retrospective which is unique in the world; they also liked the vintage ambience of the village, the large amount of entertainment, the car exhibition put on by the clubs which, this weekend, will bring some 8500 vehicles to the Sarthe.

At 16:00 Pharrell Williams will wave the French flag to unleash drivers and cars who will tackle the exceptionally long 13,629-km circuit split up by corners whose names are redolent of so many battlefields. Maybe the star, who is also keen on art, design and fashion, may discover a new passion for collector cars. Only time will tell!
