The CCCUK has received the following announcment on the 2022 LE MANS CLASSIC
Le Mans Classic 2022 will be held from June 30th to July 3rd. Eagerly expected for four years, the event will open its doors on Thursday afternoon and do it big.
Created in 2002 by Peter Auto, in association with the Automobile Club de l'Ouest, Le Mans Classic offers a formidable retrospective of the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The event, acclaimed from its very first edition, has continued to grow and attracted over 195,000 spectators in 2018. It is the largest gathering of classic cars with 600 racing cars on the track and 8,500 classic cars displayed in the specially designed enclosure.
Organized every two years, Le Mans Classic was originally scheduled to celebrate its 10th running in July 2020. The health crisis has decided otherwise, so the 10th edition will also mark the 20th anniversary of the event creation (2002). For the occasion, new features will punctuate the weekend, starting with the opening of the circuit being brought forward to Thursday afternoon, allowing the public to attend the Checks and Scrutineering. As well as the Endurance Racing Legends grid which will compete in races.
Clubs and collectors, who have already booked their tickets before the two successive postponements (2020, 2021), can of course enjoy the show. Your registrations are still well registered. A dedicated e-mail will be sent to you with the summary of your order, which it will of course be possible to adjust until the event.
Those of you who have already experienced Le Mans Classic know the very special atmosphere in and around Le Mans during that week. Clubs and collectors are key players in this great celebration. So we are counting on you to highlight the heritage and the automotive passion in the most beautiful way.
