Further preview highlights include the famed 1958 Lister-Jaguar ‘Knobbly’ and an original 1931 ‘Blower’ Bentley that also attended the Le Mans Classic race last weekend. Among the other cars confirmed to attend there are two significant former Le Mans competitors: the ex-Works 1997 Porsche GT1 Evo and 1998 Mercedes-Benz CLK LM.
