Le Mans Classic 2004 - Preview

This time next week the second running of the Le Mans Classic will be well under way. Last held in 2002, the biennial event looks like being even better with more cars, an extra grid, greater daylight running, a world-class auction from Christie’s and more to see and do inside the circuit. There’s also manufacturer-involvement from Aston Martin, Alfa Romeo, Ford and Ferrari.

By extending the period of qualification up to 1978, the organisers have allowed in such cars as Porsche’s 935 and 936 (to be driven by none other than ex-factory driver Jürgen Barth), as well as classic Le Mans privateer sports-prototypes like the de Cadenet, and 2-litre Lolas and Chevrons. Racing driver-turned-commentator Alain de Cadenet is actually competing in the event, driving his 1931 low-chassis Invicta with rock guitarist Mark Knopfler in ‘Plateau 1’ - the pre-war class.

The annual 24 Hours race at the circuit has spawned some of the greatest (and most valuable) cars from Ferrari, Porsche, Jaguar, Mercedes, Alfa Romeo, Bentley and Aston Martin. This year’s Classic meeting has gathered examples of most of them, such as the 1926 Bentley 3 Litre Speed Model of Classic Driver contributor Tony Dron and Duncan Wiltshire, through the actual 1959 race-winning DBR1 of Dr Ulrich Bez (CEO of Aston Martin) and Peter Hardman, to Juan Barazi’s 1970 ‘psychedelic’ Porsche 917 and the 1976 Inaltera driven by contemporary Le Mans driver Jean-Claude Andruet.

All the cars that have now passed into motor-racing legend will be there. Aston Martin Ulster, Alfa 8c, Ferrari 250GT SWB, Jaguar D-type, Lotus XI, Maserati Tipo 61 ‘Birdcage’, AC Cobra, Ford GT40, Lola T70, Ferrari 512M and ’73 Porsche 911 Carrera. The GT40 has the honour of being in two separate grids, one for pre- and one for post-1965 cars. No less than 15 examples will be racing, and the Blue Oval itself will be represented at the meeting with its new ‘GT’ displayed within Paddock 5, as well as appearing on-track with its older siblings on the Friday - the first European appearance of the car in action.

Ford is just one of the big manufacturers at Le Mans to use the event to publicise their modern cars. As last time the paddocks are separated by race-grid, and Ferrari will have an example of their latest GT racer, the 575GTC, in Paddock 4 (1962/1965), while Alfa Romeo (proud of having at least one of their cars - uniquely - in each of the six grids) will be showing the new "Crosswagon" in Paddock 1 (1923/1939),and Porsche have the latest type-997 911 in Paddock 6 (1972/1978). Aston Martin will have the DB9 displayed in Paddock 3 (1957 - 1961).

Taking a leaf out of Goodwood’s book, the organisers are politely asking spectators to wear “Smart Casual" - with no jeans - for access to the paddocks, and while that might not mean actual period-dress, it will lend the event an air of civilisation sadly lacking at modern race meetings. In 2002, Saturday afternoon was very ‘smart Paris-set’ with blazers, loafers and Hermès belts much in abundance.

In addition to the racing, owners clubs have been actively encouraged to put on displays - the meeting is supported by the FFVE and the FIVA federations - and a much larger range of trade stands than last time will be present. The infield of the Bugatti Circuit will be the area to go to for club and marque displays.

Friday 23rd will see scrutineering for the cars in the town and at the circuit from 08.30, while practice will start at 19.45 (finishing at 01.15, Saturday morning), and the auction starts at 16.00. On Saturday, official qualifying will be from 08.30 - 11.00, track parades from 11.45 - 14.45 with racing commencing (when else?) at 16.00 - for 24 hours. Prizegiving on Sunday will be from 16.30 - 18.30.

A major event at this year's race will be Christie's Auction of Exceptional Motor Cars, held on Friday 23rd July, at 16.00 hrs. The sale include no fewer than 6 former Le Mans competitors, full details of which can be found HERE. In addition, all lots in the Christie's auction are viewable on the Classic Driver car database.

Classic Driver will be at the event from Thursday and are delighted to announce a unique 'Classic Inside' from Le Mans next Friday. This will include some very special interviews, as well as a feature on one of the cars in the race.

The 2004 Le Mans Classic will be held at the regular 24 Hours circuit from 23 - 25 July.

Further information can be obtained from – www.lemansclassic.com.
