2009 24 Hours of LeMans Driver Parade - Click above for a high-res image gallery

The Driver Parade at the 24 Hours of Le Mans combines the world's finest cars and top driving talent. It's a veritable wonderland for motorsports geeks, and with tens of thousands of people packed into the city's central square (think McQueen's entrance at the opening of Le Mans), next to the race itself, it's the biggest highlight of the weekend.

The parade kicked off with some varied exotic hotness, including appearances by a Caparo T1, Zenvo ST1, Tramontana R and the GTbyCitroen concept, the latter creating a glorious noise as it drove past the grandstand. Sprinkled in with the teams, drivers, awards and marching bands were a number of oddities and classics, including an appearance by the GT40 owner's club, the European Corvette club and, surprisingly, a crew of about 40 Harley-Davidsons – and that was just in the first 20 minutes of the two-hour event. Check out the massive, 100+ image gallery below to get a feel for the festivities.
