Le Mans Classic

Presentation

Le Mans Classic is a retrospective of competition cars taking place on the Le Mans 24 Hours circuit which takes place every two years. Created in 2002, this event takes place over 3 days, the 1st weekend of even years alternating since 2017 with the Chantilly Arts & Elegance Richard Mille competition. It was in 2002 that Patrick Peter, director of the Peter Auto organisation, joined forces with watchmaker Richard Mille and the Automobile Club de l'Ouest to offer the 24 Hours of Le Mans a retrospective of classic racing cars. At Le Mans Classic the vehicles compete in platters bringing together all the vehicles or models of the same type, having competed in the 24 Hours of Le Mans between 1923 and 1993. The race brings together an average of 500 vehicles spread over six stages.
The 24 Hours of Le Mans has existed for almost 100 years: the first edition took place in 1923.
