Classic British Welcome Photos (Le Mans Carshow)

The Classic British Welcome is a long standing tradition during the Le Mans week. On the friday, at a small village north of the city (St. Saturnin) around 1000 cars take over a village hall site, making it one of the biggest car shows on during the week. I headed over early friday morning and stayed till around 1, before heading back to get into town in time for the driver parade. Look out for some (lots) of pictures from me from Le Mans either later today or tomorrow, but for now, heres a selection of what was on offer at the Classic British Welcome:

P.S. High res versions are all on my Flickr: RWSMotorsport
