27th Spa Six Hours - Francorchamps 27-29 September 2019

Written by
Located at the heart of the Belgian Ardennes forest lies one of the most beautiful circuits in the world, the circuit of Spa Francorchamps. Similar to the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the Spa circuit was built into a hilly landscape in the 1920s. Although it has been adapted to modern requirements over the past decades, it has lost nothing of its appeal. For motorsport with classic vehicles, Spa-Francorchamps is also an ideal venue. The most interesting European event for nostalgic petrol heads is the Spa Six Hours weekend. This year the 27th Spa Six Hours weekend, organised by the Road Book Organisation, took place from the 25th to the 29th of September 2019. More than 650 historic racing cars are competing again in various race classes. The absolute highlight of the weekend is the long distance race - the Spa Six Hours.

AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix 9-11 August 2019

Written by
The 47th AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix, attracted more than 53,000 spectators. Approximately 500 historic racing cars were present at the Nürburgring, showing their muscles on the tarmac with an immense roar of the well tuned engines. The weather conditions were constantly changing with a heavy shower during Friday’s qualifying sessions in the afternoon. The weather during the races on Saturday increasingly took a turn towards the sunny side, so adding some more spice to the competition because on the wet track in qualifying the lighter and more agile classic cars frequently had an advantage, while during racing under dry conditions the more powerful vehicles were able to leverage their strengths. Hence the spectators saw gripping races with many position battles.
