ST SATURNIN - CLASSIC BRITISH WELCOME
FRIDAY 10TH JUNE 2022 - 9:00 TO 17:00
The Saint-Saturnin Classic British Welcome originated from a passion for Le Mans and the 24 hour race. It’s a fun, colourful car show to welcome visitors to Le Mans, held every year, on the Friday before the 24 hour race. Over a thousand classic cars of all shapes and sizes, from all around the world, gather in Saint-Saturnin, on the northern outskirts of Le Mans.
Bring your classic car and show it off in the exhibition car park and grounds with around 1000 sports and classic cars. Wander around the stands, watch a film, admire the cars, have a bite to eat and then see off the Saint-Saturnin Cavalcade of prestigious cars as they make their way into town for the Parade des Pilotes. This not-to-be-missed event is free for both visitors and exhibitors. On Friday 10th June 2022, the Classic British Welcome in Saint-Saturnin is the place to be.
20 YEAR CELEBRATION
It’s hard to believe, but Classic British Welcome is now 20 years old! Over the past two decades, it has grown in size and stature to become the premiere support event to the world famous Le Mans 24 hour race. Now, as then, it is totally free to the public, something only made possible by a hard-working band of volunteers who give up hours and indeed, days of their time throughout the preceding year to make sure that everything works perfectly on the day.
Every year since 2003, there has been a theme marques including; Alpine, Aston Martin, Austin Healey, BMW, Corvette, Ferrari, Jaguar, Lotus, Marcos, MG, Morgan, Porsche and Triumph. All have competed in the world’s most famous race, a true test of drivers and machines, a race which is often cruel, sometimes gruelling but always exciting!
Finally, it was also confirmed that this year’s special guest would be Dr Wolfgang Ullrich, the former director of Audi Sport. Under his leadership, Audi won 13 times at the Le Mans 24H.
