GCCheddaris should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
The Le Mans Classic was cancelled in 2021 owing to travel restrictions across Europe at that time due to COVID, which was why the Le Mans Classic was held in 2022 and 2023. I believe the next scheduled Classic will be held in 2025, as the event has been held in odd years in recent times.

Other ones have been late July, having it in June seems a recent development.

I wouldn't be surprised if the increased popularity (for good or ill) will see it become an annual event.

Think we had tickets for 2020 rolled over until 2022. 2020 was cancelled due to Covid and 2021 event could have gone ahead but with a much lower capacity crowd.

It is very similar so every year would be a bit much for the competitors. They are also padding out the schedule in recent years with more empty track periods (especially away from main start/finish straight) - should stick a group C night race in. Not much point staying up til 1am or do for Plateau 1.

it has always been on even years in the early years but the success of it has almost certainly made it annual from now on, the cars racing are also racing at countless other events in uk and europe which are annual so see n o problem of enough cars to fill the grids each year
