The weekend programme features more than 600 historic racers take to the circuit to battle it out in front of the crowds. Cars such as the Ford GT40, Jaguar E-Type, AC Cobra, Chevron B8 and Lola T70 will all be racing, recreating the images of Fangio, Ascari, Hill, Brabham and Clark in their prime.

The highlight of the race weekend takes place on Saturday afternoon with the titular six hours endurance race that sees 100 cars start in the light of day and finish in the dark of night. The racing is tight and atmosphere is electric.
