Le Mans Legend 2007 - 1956-1968 Cars
The support race for the 75th Le Mans 24 Hours will feature Le Mans cars from a classic period – 1956-1968.

A grid of 61 Le Mans cars from this era will take to the famous circuit for a one-hour, two-driver support race, on Saturday morning, June 16.

“The period we have chosen for the 2007 Le Mans Legend race covers the great Ferrari era at Le Mans,” says Motor Racing Legends Chairman, Duncan Wiltshire, “and leads to the emergence of the Ford GT40 and Ford’s eventual domination of the 24 Hours.

“To many, the Ford vs. Ferrari battles of the 1960s encapsulate the very essence of Le Mans history. But by taking the eligible years back to 1956, we will also cover the two Ecurie Ecosse wins in Jaguar D-types, followed by Ferrari’s incredible string of victories from 1958 to 1965, broken only by Aston Martin’s win in 1959 with its fabulous DBR1.”

The Le Mans Legend race is run by Motor Racing Legends in partnership with the Automobile Club de l’Ouest, and is for actual cars which ran at Le Mans, plus genuine sister cars of the same specification.
