Le Mans & Dijon Prenois Double Header | 16-18 August 2020

Le Mans – Bugatti – Over 2.5 miles of undulating track with a variety of challenging corners and wide run offs. Using the main arena for arguably the World’s greatest race the Le Mans 24hr and it’s modern facilities.

For the first time in 4 years we return to an Open Pit Lane format at Le Mans, rather than running in sessions. Unfortunately this means we can’t accept Caterham’s or similar types of car. If you have an Elise S1 please contact Paul first. To be clear all Elise S2, Elise S3, Exiges, Evoras, VX220’s, Boxsters, Caymens and most other non Lotus types of car that we accept will be ok. Maximum weight is 1800kgs. In 2018 we only had 4 cars on the day that wouldn’t be permitted in 2020, the lightweight session was short by 15+ cars so it’s a case of run the day OPL and exclude the lighter cars or don’t run the day as OPL is much more popular.

During lunch we’ll put all the cars on the legendary grid and then do a slow – photo lap with everyone who wants.

Dijon Prenois – Arguably one of Europes top 5 circuits with a history to match the circuit. Home to half a dozen Grand Prixs including the Swiss GP as well as the French. Probably most famous for one of the best races in F1s history when in 1979 the late Gilles Villeneuve and René Arnoux locked horns.

Car Type: Strictly 2 seater road legal sports cars only. For further infomation please view our FAQ here.
