Le Mans Classic

The Le Mans 24-Hours race writes history and Le Mans Classic tells the story! In 2018 Le Mans Classic will be staged for the ninth time as it is held on a biennial basis.

Six grid, 24 hours of on-track action

As the aim is to offer spectators and entrants equally-matched fields in terms of performance and historic pertinence, the 500 racing cars are divided up into six grids, each of which corresponds to a particular period. The cars selected are those that have taken part in the Le Mans 24 Hours between 1923 and 1981. Priority is given to cars that have actually raced in the event in their particular era.

  • Grid 1 (1923-1939)
  • Grid 2 (1949-1956)
  • Grid 3 (1957-1961)
  • Grid 4 (1962-1965)
  • Grid 5 (1966-1971)
  • Grid 6 (1972-1981)
