Le Mans Classic

The bi-annual Le Mans Classic event complements the main 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance event by reliving some of the magic the Le Mans 24HR has provided over the years.

Visitors to the event get to witness the very best in motorsport and classic cars, as well as getting to soak up a very special atmosphere. In 2018, Le Mans Classic took place on the 6th, 7th and 8th of July - just three weeks after the 24 Hours of Le Mans.


Day and Night

The French town of Le Mans as you would expect has a certain aura about it, and during either the 24 Hours of Le Mans or Le Mans Classic, the town becomes a mecca for petrolheads and motorsport fans. Even if you are neither of these, you will be by the time you leave.

This year saw over 600 legendary racing cars ranging from as early as the 1920s, all the way up to the late 1970s, racing at the famous Circuit de la Sarthe. These were joined  as well as a few more modern cars on display too, from major manufacturers.

The thing is, being 24 hours, racing took part in familiar daylight, but was complemented by night racing - where the excitement builds and the lights add to the incredible driving and drama.

Priceless Cars

Cars such as the legendary Le Mans winning Porsche 917 - along with many versions of the Porsche 911 rolled back the years on track, along with the iconic Ford GT40 - a car that put an end to Ferrari's dominance in the '60s.

Other big names in motorsport such as McLaren were also showcasing their latest road creations, such as the incredible McLaren Senna. Named after arguably the most famous F1 driver ever, you just know it's going to be amazing on road and on track.

Five-Star Treatment

It is fair to say that these sorts of events can sometimes be a bit full on. Not knowing what to see first and sorting transport both to and from the track - especially with accommodation being almost impossible to secure anywhere near the action, due to the sheer popularity of the event.

Luckily with Stratstone, you don't need to worry about the tiresome stuff like that, as it is all taken care of thanks to brand-new SUV shuttles. This year these were Land Rover Discovery models, with striking Stratstone Club Le Mans Classic Experience livery. And then there is the hospitality…
