The Le Mans Classic Returns

The next Le Mans Classic will take place from the 3rd – 5th July 2020, it has been announced. At the 2019 Salon Retromobile exhibition, Patrick Peter confirmed the Le Mans Classic news along with details about the other Peter Auto events taking place in 2019.

Le Mans ClassicThe Le Mans Classic has always focused on the cars that raced at Le Mans from 1923 through to 1979, however the perceived success of the introduction of both the Group C cars (1982 – 1993) and the Endurance Racing Legends (1994 – 2010) at the 2018 event, will no doubt see the extension of the Le Mans Classic reach in to the current century.

We can’t wait to see him go up against some experienced racers including Rob Huff, Chris Ward, Nick Padmore and more. Expect to see Porsche 962’s, Peugeot 905 and many more, in what is likely to be a competitive battle up at the sharp end of the grid. Group C joined the programme at the 2016 racing during the morning ahead of the six existing grids. Due to the popularity it’s returning this year again to race in the morning alongside the two other support grids ‘Porsche Classic Race Le Mans’ & ‘Jaguar Classic Challenge’.  Another spectacle set to wow the crowds is the Global Endurance Legends demonstrations. They will run twice for 40 minutes during the weekend, with McLaren F1 GTR’s, Ferrari 360 and F40’s there are some fabulous cars set to take part.
