Classic Le Mans up next for Rob Huff, as he races the Spice SE89P

Rob Huff gets back into classic racing for the summer

Rob Huff will be behind the wheel of Paul Newman's classic Spice SE89P this weekend, racing the car in the Group C class of the Classic Le Mans event at the Circuit de la Sarthe.

The invitation to race the famous sports car, which was raced by movie star Paul Newman and developed for the IMSA GT Championship, came from friend Richard Meins, who himself is racing a Jaguar XJR-8 in the Classic Le Mans Group C class this weekend.

Huff jumped at the opportunity to race the classic Spice Engineering developed car, which runs with an Oldsmobile V8 engine and competes in its original all-blue livery.

Live coverage is available throughout the weekend with sports car commentary experts Bruce Jones, Jim Roller and Martin Haven.

The Group C race is scheduled for 10:20am BST on Saturday.
