Le Mans Classic
With the 100th anniversary of the very first Le Mans 24h in real life, we want to honour that during our “Le Mans Month”. On Friday, 9 June (the night before the start of the real life event), we will host two 1h20 races with full day-night cycle and in different eras of the greatest race on earth!
RACE 1: 1960s – Ford v Ferrari
The first race will take place in the era on which the Christian Bale/Matt Damon blockbuster “Ford v Ferrari” was based. Taking the track and grid from 1967, courtesy of woochoo, you get a chance to experience the rockets that these and other manufacturers designed around a track that truly makes you feel like you’ve taken the DeLorean to travel back to Le Mans in the 60s. Whose side are you on? Ford or Ferrari?
- Track: Le Grand Circuit 1967 (Steam Workshop)
- Cars: 1967 Endurance (Steam Workshop)
RACE 2: 1980s – Group C
The second race revolves around what many agree was the best class that raced at Le Mans to date: Group C. We’re going back to 1984, but with a modern twist as we’ll be racing on the current layout of the track. You’ll have access to about two-third of the cars that raced in 1984, among which are the mighty Porsche 956, the Jaguar XJR-5 and the Mazda 727C. Can you keep Porsche from taking the win again? Or will you contribute to yet another dominant Porsche performance in the Group C era?
