40th Oldtimer Grand Prix Nurburgring - Part 1 10-12 August 2012

Written by
The conditions for the 40th Anniversary of the Oldtimer-GP couldn’t be better, three days of sunshine ! So 50,000 visitors enjoyed themselves around the Grand Prix track and the old original Nordschleife circuit. During the previous years the 4-hour race was held on the combined Nordschleife and Grand-Prix circuit but this year the organisation decided to run the 4-hour race using only the old track.

ADAC Eifelrace um den Jan-Wellem-Pokal Nürburgring 8-10 June 2012

Written by
About 18,000 visitors enjoyed three days of historic motor sport at the Nürburgring Grand Prix track and the 22 kilometres Nordschleife. Whether on two, three or four wheels, the 26th edition of this event offered an entertaining program about a century of automotive fascination. One of the highlights was the largest ever meeting of the Veritas sportscars and their owners in the renovated old pits square.

Spa Six Hours 2011

Written by
After a damp Goodwood Revival weekend before the Six Hours meeting and the memories of a very wet Six Hours weekend in 2010, I was relieved that everyone driving off to Spa-Francorchamps was treated to a totally sunny autumn weekend. It’s still hard to understand why one of the most important classic race events on the European mainland doesn’t attract more visitors. Compared to the number of people visiting Goodwood it must be a bit frustrating for the organisers as the fields of all the races are filled with an impressive number of highly interesting and well prepared cars.
