After our visit to the Classic British Welcome today we headed into Le Mans town centre, ready for the Drivers’ Parade. We were lucky enough to find a great spot in the main square, from where to watch the racing drivers as they came round in a selection of historic cars.
Frustratingly the parade, which was supposed to last two hours, went on for closer to four hours, so we didn’t stay until the end – we were defeated by many hours standing in the hot sunshine. However, we still had plenty of time to soak up the festival atmosphere and it got us in the mood for the racing tomorrow!
