Le Mans Classic cancelled for 2021
Le Mans Classic has been postponed until 2022.
Ticket holders unable to make the new date can contact their ticket vendors for a refund or hold the tickets over to next year.
Patrick Peter, Peter Auto : “The maximum figures of people imposed by the government do not allow us to maintain this event on the initial dates (July 1 to 4, 2021). Moreover, even if it has been considered, a closed session would not do justice to this. event and would considerably reduce the beautiful tribute to the great history of endurance. Le Mans Classic without public, without exhibitors and without clubs it is not Le Mans Classic. We will nevertheless meet again in August during the 24 Hours Le Mans with the presence of Endurance Racing Legends cars as the support race. Enthusiasts will have two successive years of Le Mans Classic since we will do another edition in 2023 which will be an opportunity to reinforce the tribute to the centenary of creation of the 24 Hours of Le Mans race.“
Pierre Fillon, President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest : “Organizing Le Mans Classic behind closed doors would not make any sense. This event is made for the public, and the lack of visibility on the current situation generates this logical decision. This event loved by all enthusiasts will be held in 2022, before a return in 2023 for a centenary edition of the 24 Hours of Le Mans which promises to be exceptional. The Endurance Racing Legends, support race for the 24 Hours of Le Mans this year, will allow the automobile to be celebrated as it should be.”
