Peter Auto and the ACO have confirmed today that even should the world-wide cessation of sporting activities end this year, there will be no Le Mans Classic, which is now provisionally scheduled for the first weekend of July 2021. With the event having previoulsy taken place in even numbered years, it is not yet clear if it will then continue every other year from 2012, or if there will a le Mans Classic in 2022.
“Le Mans Classic is an international showcase that attracts almost 200,000 fans to a single venue,” explained Patrick Peter, President of Peter Auto, “As you can imagine, maintaining the original dates for the event in the current context was out of the question. We have therefore decided, together with our partners and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, to postpone Le Mans Classic until 2021 when everyone will be able to fully enjoy this marvellous retrospective of the finest hours of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.”
Any tickets already purchased for the 2020 event will give admission in 2012.
