CBW Logo APR2022

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 9th June 2023, the Classic British Welcome in Saint-Saturnin is the place to be.

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.

This years theme marque is Ferrari, a fitting tribute with the 499P Hypercar marking 50 years since the Italian manufacturer fielded a factory-backed sports prototype that contested for the overall win at the 24 Hours of Le Mans. As a tribute to this anniversary one of the 499Ps will proudly race with the number 50.

Our VIP guest for 2023 will be Gérard Larrousse, a legendary name in the world of motorsport who started his career rallying in 1961. Between 1967 and 1974 he participated 8 times at the 24 Hours of Le Man, winning the great race in 1973 and 1974 at the wheel of Malta-Simca MS670s, partnered by Henri Pescarolo. Following his second victory he became director of Renault Sport and in that capacity secured his third win at the event for Renault-Alpine in 1978. He turned his hand to F1 later on as director of Renault Sport F1 and Liger F1, before creating his own F1 team between 1987 and 1994. Gérard is still president of the ‘Club Des Pilotes Des 24h’.
