Classic Day, Le Mans
5th – 8th July 2019
In 2018 the Classic Days event celebrated their 10th edition at Magny-Cours, their original home. Join us in 2019 at the first ever Classic Days to take place at Le Mans on the Bugatti Circuit. We enjoyed the event many times at Magny-Cours, so we were really happy to learn they were coming to our favourite place – Le Mans.
So, what is Classic Days all about? The event attracts over 1200 classic car owners, most of whom come to the event for the chance to drive their car on track. The weekend comprises of three parade lap sessions, on which you will share the track with around 60 other cars.
The paddocks are divided up by marque, so you will be surrounded by like minded enthusiasts to enjoy the weekend with. This event is open to all vehicles manufactured before 1980. Some exceptions to this rule are admissible, so please speak to us about this. Similarly, if you just wish to come and spectate there is a package available to you too. There are plenty of other animations that take place during the weekend, including a rally and also the grand parade, where all participating cars are invited on to the circuit for one lap, this is likely to fill the whole track!
We stay just a short distance from the track which is accessible by the Le Mans tram system. This is a great event that is easily accessible for a fun weekend away.
Friday 5th July
Choose from a P&O Dover to Calais sailing or Folkestone to Calais on the Eurotunnel (alternative channel routes available for a small supplement) and make way to Le Mans. We have selected a three star hotel on the South East outskirts of Le Mans, making access to the circuit very easy. The hotel has a restaurant or you can easily hop on the tram line to go and explore central Le Mans.
Saturday 6th July
After breakfast at the hotel, you will head in to the circuit nice and early to take up your position in the paddock. You have time to ready yourself for your parade lap session (helmets are mandatory) or to admire the 100’s of cars lining the paddocks. There will be many exhibitor displays and the rally to take part in. you also have the Le Mans museum, which is well worth a visit.
Sunday 7th July
Return to the circuit for more track action including the grand parade. Expect to see air displays over the weekend too. Not to mention the chance to rub shoulders with star drivers from the bygone era, special displays by featured marques (For 2019 this is set to be Bentley). On track expect to see historic F1 cars, past Le Mans cars and more.
Monday 8th July
Enjoy one last French breakfast before heading back to the ports to return home.
