On Thursday November 20th, the evening of the International Historic Motoring Awards 2014, London’s St. Pancras Renaissance Hotel received the international historic cars’ ‘Who’s Who’ with its panel of familiar faces and household names who bring the legend to life. Le Mans Classic was awarded.

These awards are to motor racing what Oscars and Césars are to the cinema -the highest possible form of recognition for the year’s most remarkable people and events, awarded by their peers.

Patrick Peter: “What motivates us most when we organize these events is bringing satisfaction to the public, the participants and the partners who support us.
