Meet the drivers of the Le Mans Classic 2016
Racing at Le Mans is one of the great privileges for a driver, be it an amateur taking the plunge for the first time or a former winner keen to relive the seminal experience. We met several during last weekend’s Le Mans Classic, who were all revelling in the chance to tackle the hallowed circuit...
Historic Porsche dealer Lee Maxted-Page was quietly confident when we spoke to him last week ahead of the Le Mans Classic, where he shared a beautifully prepared 1974 Porsche 911 3.0 RSR with Mark Sumpter, the founder of Paragon Porsche. His outfit was, as you’d expect, brilliantly turned out – we particularly liked his period-correct monkey bike, for shuttling personnel around the paddock. It seems his confidence was warranted – the duo finished an impressive 21st in Plateau 6, behind only three 911s, open prototypes and later Group 5 silhouette racers.
