Peter Auto and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest have decided to postpone the tenth edition of Le Mans Classic to July 1-2-3-4, 2021, amid the COVID-19 situation.
After having carefully studied different scenarios and possible dates, both parties finally decided that postponing Le Mans Classic to 2021 was the best solution for this event in order to ensure that the event runs during the summer and with a strong crowd.
“Le Mans Classic is an international event that brings together close to 200,000 spectators in one place,” said Patrick Peter, the head of Peter Auto.
“As you can imagine, keeping this event at the original dates in the current context was therefore not an option. We have, in line with our partners and the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, decided to postpone Le Mans Classic to 2021 where everyone can take full advantage of this magnificent retrospective of the best hours of the 24 Hours of Le Mans.”
Pierre Fillon, the President of the Automobile Club de l’Ouest added: “Le Mans Classic is a monument in the vintage auto world. Safety and quality are therefore key to the organisation of such a prominent event.
“We are momentarily unable to guarantee these essential requirements and postponement is our only option. We can now focus on 2021 and look forward to welcoming you all then. In the meantime, take care of yourselves and your loved ones.”
