Le Mans Classic returns for an exceptional edition from June 29th to July 2nd 2023, to celebrate the centenary of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. Driving a racing car is the dream of many men and women. Le Mans Classic offers drivers, both professionals and amateurs, the opportunity to drive along the 24 Hours circuit and to take on the most famous straight line in the world, the Mulsanne straight. It is possible to register on the grids 1 to 6 corresponding to a period but also to the 4 support races. Finally, budding drivers will also be entitled to drive on the Bugatti circuit. The Little Big Mans registration is also open!
Grids 1 to 6
To offer spectators and competitors a homogeneous grid in terms of performance and historical relevance, 750 competition cars are divided into six grids, each corresponding to a period. The models selected are those that took part in the Le Mans 24 Hours between 1923 and 1981. Priority is given to the cars which themselves raced in the event at the time.
Further information on the grids via the links below:
Grid 1: 1923 – 1939
Grid 2: 1949 – 1956
Grid 3: 1957 – 1961
Grid 4: 1962 – 1965
Grid 6: 1972 – 1981
Since 2002, Le Mans Classic has been extended from two days to three and a half. This has made it possible to invite support races for cars, some of which have not necessarily raced on the Sarthe circuit, but which are selected for the quality of the cars on track. These cars will have the privilege to race on the great 24 Hours circuit and will give the public the privilege to admire them. The support races of this year 2023 will be revealed soon.
Little Big Mans
Little Big Mans is one of the highlights of Le Mans Classic. The “Le Mans-style” start of our future little champions always takes place under a standing ovation. This parade is open to children from 7 to 12 years old at the wheel of internal combustion or electric cars, miniature replicas of the models that made the great hours of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. But beware, our miniature drivers will have to wait to find out who is the best among them: there will be no ranking since this is not a race…
