Sommet Des Légendes: A Lovely Canadian Vintage Race Event
Photography by: Charles Audet
Located about two hours away from Montreal, Circuit Mont-Tremblant is a track that was built in the mid-’60s and has seen a number of notable championships and drivers circulate around its 15 beautiful corners. Notable for hosting Formula 1, Trans-Am, and the Can-Am series in period, in recent years, a big refresh has left the far safer circuit an attractive place to hold a vintage racing event.
And Sommet des Légendes was exactly that.
Held in mid-July, this 11th running of the event featured Can-Am, IMSA, LMP, Formula Libre, and “classic monoposto” cars as some of the classes. Montreal-based photographer Charles Audet was on hand to capture the action and atmosphere from beautiful Quebec.
Enjoy the photos from this year’s event, and be sure to put the 2016 edition on your calendar: watching vintage race cars in a very relaxed setting is becoming more and more difficult to experience.
