Le Mans Legend 2005 - Star Entries

Entries have been pouring in for the 2005 Le Mans Legend, the Historic race run a few hours before the start of the Le Mans 24 Hours. This year’s race is for cars which ran at Le Mans between 1935 and 1955, or sister cars of the same specification, and entries already include such highlights as:
  • Three-times Le Mans winner and 1961 F1 World Champion Phil Hill in an Alfa Romeo 3000CM - the actual car which Fangio drove at Le Mans in 1953.
  • Sir Stirling Moss in Nigel Webb’s Jaguar C-type: the very first production C-type (the first three were works racers) and the earliest surviving example of this evocative purpose-built sports-racer.
  • Other well-known names from the world of motorsport, including F1 pilot and Le Mans-winning driver Johnny Herbert, and rally star Rauno Aaltonen.
  • A great number of cars with actual Le Mans history including an MG K3 (Le Mans 1935); Aston Martin Ulster (Le Mans 1935); Aston Martin ‘Red Dragon’ (Le Mans 1937 and 1949); HRG Le Mans (Le Mans 1949); and Jaguar XK120 (Le Mans 1950).
  • And that’s just the start. On Saturday 18th June 2005, the Le Mans Legend will be a one-hour, two-driver race on the full 8.5-mile circuit with a grid of 61 cars from the 1935-1955 era. It promises an outstanding spectacle for Historic racing enthusiasts.
