The 2016 Le Mans Classic was held 8-10 July at the famous 38-turn, 8.469-mile Circuit de la Sarthe in Le Mans, France. The eighth edition of this biennial event hosted hundreds of vintage race cars at the venue of the legendary 24 Hours of Le Mans endurance race.
With exceptional weather, the 2016 edition of Le Mans Classic was a wonderful display of reuniting many historic race cars with the track that made them famous. One of the top vintage car racing events worldwide, this year’s event hosted 550 historic cars and more than 1,000 drivers.
In addition to our main report and ‘night’ gallery, Senior Photographer Julien Mahiels also offers the following spectacular ‘Behind the Scene’ images from the event that retraces the history of the greatest endurance race in the world. To see more from Julien, visit julienmahiels.net.
