Morgan people at the Le Mans Classic in 2004

For cars that either raced at Le Mans or are of a type that raced at Le Mans, racing on the full 24 hour circuit (only open two other times in the year - as it costs around 800,000 Euros to close the public roads, etc).

A fantastic weekend with an amazing amount of classic cars all in one place
