We have finally arrived in the week of Le Mans Classic 2018, where Tuthill Porsche is supporting five 911s in the 2.0L Cup race as part of the Porsche 70th anniversary celebrations. We look forward to seeing all of the British and European Porsche enthusiasts who make it to La Sarthe. For those who cannot make it in person, the organisers have just announced details of unprecedented online coverage of this remarkable motorsport event.
On July 7th and 8th, Le Mans Classic will receive its biggest ever live and free internet coverage: sixteen cameras will broadcast for 16 hours, covering twelve races which may be followed live and in full at www.lemansclassic.com. The cameras cover the entire 13.6km circuit and are provided by B-Side, Peter Auto’s video partner since 2014, and AMP Visual TV that has been creating the images of the Le Mans 24 Hours since 2006.
The live coverage of Classic Le Mans 2016 attracted more than 300,000 online spectators worldwide, and this should be easily eclipsed by 2018. Bruce Jones, Jim Roller and our friend, Martin Haven, will provide the English commentary, while French speakers will be entertained by Marc Minari and Gilles Della Posta. We you enjoy watching the racing online: don’t forget to cheer on our progress!
