Le Mans Classic Postponed to 2022, but a Le Mans Classic "Centenary" Edition in 2023
Due to the more than capricious changes in the constraints applied to large-scale events, Peter Auto and the Automobile Club de l'Ouest were forced to postpone once again the tenth edition of Le Mans Classic to the first or second weekend of July 2022 (the date will be confirmed in September). Indeed, it is totally impossible to organize a miniature of the event which normally welcomes 200,000 spectators who, moreover, will have to participate seated: no more clubs, no more villages, no more activities… In summary, a Le Mans Classic which would not be anymore the celebration of the automobile it has become in twenty years and ten editions of existence. Unthinkable!
But being deprived for two editions of the retrospective of the biggest race in the world deserves an exceptional catch-up session. The centenary celebrations of the 24 Hours of Le Mans will therefore be an opportunity for Le Mans Classic to also take place in July 2023.
