Le Mans Classic 2022
June 30 - July 4 2022 COMPLETED
The International 7 Network has put together a supporting program together with the travel agency Scenic Car Tours.
Join us at Le Mans Classic 2022 from June 30th to July 3rd. Always an eagerly event expected it starts on June 30th through to July 3rd with a special package for International 7 Network member clubs.
Created in 2002 by Peter Auto, in association with the Automobile Club de l’Ouest , from its inception it has continued to grow and attracted over 195,000 spectators in 2018. It is the largest gathering of classic cars with 600 racing cars on the track and 8,500 classic cars displayed in the specially designed enclosures.
Organized every other year, Le Mans Classic was originally scheduled to celebrate its 10th anniversary in July 2020. The worldwide pandemic means that 2022 will also mark the 20th anniversary of the event. For this occasion, new features will feature throughout the weekend, starting with the opening of the circuit being brought forward to Thursday afternoon, allowing the public to attend the Checks and Scrutineering. Another première, the Endurance Racing Legends series, which brings together the GTs and prototypes of the years 1990-2000, will be run as a competition and no longer as a parade. Last, but not least, the 40th anniversary of the Group C creation will be celebrated as it should be. And there will be more ………
Le Mans Classic has an exceptional atmosphere, and unlike the 24hr gives you the opportunity to mix with the cars, teams and drivers in the Paddock, alongside the vintage atmosphere of the event.
Racing takes place over 24 hours, with each decade of Le Mans cars racing in three grids, with at least one grid of each decade being at night. There are multiple “Le Mans” starts to be witnessed from your grandstand seat directly above the pits. It is certainly an experience not to be missed and we hope you will enjoy joining and making new Seven friends with the International 7 Network.
Hotel du Parc Samur is situated in the town of Samur on the river Loire, and is 85 Km / 53 miles (approx. 1hr 10mins) drive to the circuit via very pleasant D-roads passing through a number of market towns.
With the hotel situated in the Loire valley there are plenty of interesting places to visit should you wish to have a break from the racing.
