A fan favourite

Le Mans Classic has a real festival feel

As motorsport gatherings go, Le Mans Classic is one of the biggest and best established.

Over 190,000 fans descended on the French town for this sport-chic festival in 2022, including classic drivers and other celebrities.

Away from the circuit, fans can explore the paddock where they can get up close to these iconic machines. But it’s not just car fanatics that will enjoy the Le Mans Classic. The festival vibes continue in the off-track activities too, with live entertainment, music, dancing, and exceptional cuisine – after all, we are in France.

2023 bucks the trend

Usually held once every two years, the Le Mans Classic is back for an unprecedented third straight year in 2023. Good news for the fans, the change is a consequence of Covid-related cancellations.

The Classic naturally follows on from the 24 hours of Le Mans race, the jewel in the crown of the World Endurance Championship calendar. The race, which for the last three years has seen Hollywood movie star Michael Fassbender compete, also takes place at the Circuit de la Sarthe a couple of weeks before the Classic.

With Endurance Racing Legends, Porsche Classics and grids of cars as far as the eye can see, the sounds and smells of Classic cars will electrify the senses for all the family

Which tickets are right for you?

Motorsport Tickets is the ideal place to fine-tune your entry to the world’s greatest motor events and races.

At the Le Mans Classic, you can watch the racing action from several locations across the track with a General Enclosure ticket. However, Grandstand tickets are often preferred, as these include a reserved seat in one of Le Mans’ many grandstands for the entire weekend, providing an unobstructed view of the mythical Circuit de la Sarthe track.
