Scheduled on 8-9-10 July, the 8th edition of Le Mans Classic will once again be the opportunity to escape in another motor sport era: 500 racing cars on track, more than 8,000 vintage club cars, numerous animations, an auction… without forgetting Little Big Mans, the grid with mini racing cars driven by children from 6 to 10! For the first time in 2016, The Group C prototypes will offer a serious and spectacular curtain raiser to the event on the circuit that welcomed and celebrated them in the ‘80s.
Since 2002, Le Mans Classic has become the necessary complement of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. And somehow the showcase of all high-technologies which were born and fine-tuned there, year after year. The drivers who risk their lives behind the wheels of cars belonging to the glorious past (which are often older than they are) realize that mastering these machines each time is far from an easy affair. The essentials of the sport were no doubt the same; speed, grip, competition, passing or being left behind. However, the driving technique differs every time from the high rides of the Twenties, which were already fast, to the powerful beasts of the Seventies. Le Mans Classic will see to it that the skills needed to drive these cars will never be lost. Having fun is a serious business.
