The great debate – classic or 24 hours?

Tackling the hottest topics from planet Porsche. This month we ask you...

If you’re heading to the Circuit de la Sarthe in 2020, which Le Mans gets your vote?


Martin: We are going to the Classic with R5, together with the 991 and 992 Registers, to the Village on the Curves. And we can’t wait!
Ben: I’ve done around 13 trips to the 24 Hours of Le Mans, so it’s the Classic for me for a change. And I may upgrade to Airbnb instead of a tent too.
Matthew: My wife and I will be going to the Classic, though I’m not too sure if we’ll go in the 944 or the M3. The 944 is the favourite to make the cut at the moment.
Paul: We’ll be going to the Classic for the incredible atmosphere.
Terry: I’m going to the Classic… and then to the 24 Hours in 2021 for the hypercars.
Rob: The Classic – it will be my fifth consecutive event.
Stephen: I’ll be going to both. But I’ll be celebrating my 50th birthday at the Classic!

Andy: We’ve been going for 15 years. The only thing with the Classic is that it’s almost exactly the same each time, so we’re giving it a miss this time and going for the 24 Hours.
Martyn: It’s the 24 Hours for me. I’ve gone every year since 1991 – first with a Mazda and then Porsche all the way.
Mike: I’m finally going to the 24 Hours of Le Mans for the first time.
Lee: The 24 Hours is now a pilgrimage.
Ben S: The 24 Hours, where we’ll be staying with Village on the Curves for the fifth year.
James: I’m going to the 24 Hours with the boys (and the Classic with the ladies). Good times!
Jenna: It’s the 24 Hours every time.
Jon: C’est Le Mans 24 Heures 2020 pour moi!
60% / 40% split in favour of the Classic

What’s the verdict?
Many of you will be eating your cake and having it by heading to both the 24 Hours and the Classic, with the latter a shade more popular. Whichever version you favour, excitement is building for what are firm fixtures in many members’ diaries.
