The Watch Quote™ - July 4th, 2016
This 8th edition of the Le Mans Classic will take place July 8th through 10th on the renowned Bugatti circuit under the colours of Maison Richard Mille, principal partner and official timekeeper for the competition.
The Le Mans Classic brings to life over 80 years of automobile racing history, welcoming the cars and drivers responsible for the legendary standing of the world’s most famous race. The 2016 edition will begin straight away on Friday, with the opening act: Group C Racing, a tremendous first for this competition.
This retrospective of past Le Mans 24 Hours, which attracted over 110,000 people for the 2014 edition, is also an opportunity to attend one of the world’s largest gatherings of exceptional vehicles, bringing together 60 carmakers represented by 160 automobile clubs for a total of 8,000 cars. These will all convene around the circuit, and a few will take advantage of the occasion to go for a spin around the track for the amazing parade, accompanied by cheers from the public.
A partner of the event since its inception in 2002, Richard Mille celebrates the Le Mans Classic by creating a new watch for each edition of the race.
