Classic Days 2022, Jacky Ickx, Jean Rédélé and the Porsche 956 in the lead

Automobile and history enthusiasts will meet this weekend on the Bugatti circuit for the 15th edition of the Classic Days, the second to be organized on Sarthe land. This friendly, relaxed gathering that promotes eclecticism will be unique in more ways than one. Once again, this event will forge a link with the 24 Hours of Le Mans, for the pleasure of exhibiting owners and spectators alike.

The Classic Days 2022 will be an opportunity to celebrate one of the drivers who marked the greatest pages of the 24 Hours of Le Mans by winning the event six times: Jacky Ickx. Many signing sessions, photos and meetings will be organized for the public. For the occasion, several models associated with the immense career of the Belgian driver will be present on the Bugatti circuit: the 1967 Matra MS 5 F2 with which he won the German Formula 1 Grand Prix in 1967, the Porsche 935 “Moby Dick” or even the Porsche 956 with which he won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 1982, 40 years ago.

The Classic Days will also celebrate the centenary of Jean Rédélé, founder of the Alpine brand, through the exhibition of all the prototypes that took part in the 24 Hours of Le Mans, including the Renault-Alpine A442B, winner in 1978. Former Alpine drivers such as that Bernard Darniche, Christian Ethuin, Jean-Pierre Jarier, Jacques Laffite, Michel Leclère, Yves Legal, Jean-Pierre Limondin, Jean Ragnotti or Alain Serpaggi will also be reunited.

The Renault 5 will also be one of the stars of this gathering. The 50th anniversary of this small city car which was able to seduce a very wide audience, and thus sell more than 4 million copies, will be celebrated with dignity. Renault Classic will exhibit its most collector’s models with, icing on the cake, the presence of the Renault 5 Turbo (1980) of Alain Serpaggi, French Rally Champion in 1985.
