Event Details

Spa-Classic : a unique ambience on this legendary circuit!

More than 400 exceptional racing cars from the 50s to the 90s are expected to turn up for a mind-boggling spectacle on the outstanding Spa-Francorchamps circuit.

Classic Endurance Racing 1 and 2, 2.0L Cup, Sixties’ Endurance, The Greatest’s Trophy, Heritage Touring Cup, Group C Racing, Endurance Racing Legends & 2.0L Cup will follow one another on the track in spectacular races that relive the rich history of motor sport.

Concerning the clubs, the presence of more than 1500 historic sports cars and oldtimers will provide a unique, nostalgic, temporary exhibition.

The Spa-Classic paddocks are open to everybody and they will plunge you into another era of the motor car.

Difficult to believe that it’s already the tenth running of Spa-Classic! The drivers really look forward to this event and it is also the most popular of the season with spectators who flock to the Belgian circuit in large numbers every year (over 20 000 in 2019).

The 24 Hours of Le Mans race has Le Mans Classic and the 24 Hours of Spa, Spa-Classic, but because of different philosophical approaches there has been very little similarity between the two events for many years. The former gives pride of place to sport prototypes and the latter is for touring cars alone. The two Heritage Touring Cup races, one run in daytime and the other at night, pay homage to this Belgian singularity. On track are saloons and coupes that raced in the event between 1966 and 1984: Alfa Romeo 1750 GTAMs, BMW 3.0 CSLs, Chevrolet Camaros, Ford Capris, Jaguar XJSs, etc.

While production cars have a special place in the Ardennes, the sports prototypes and GTs are not forgotten either. Ferrari 250 GTs, Porsche 917s, Ford GT40s and Jaguar XJR-9s, all former participants in the 1 000 km or 6 Hours of Spa are all back at the circuit in their respective grids.

Spa-Francorchamps has often been described as the most beautiful circuit in the world and it could also be qualified as a photographers’ paradise. There are few race courses in the world where spectators can do a full lap on foot without ever losing sight of the track. The la Source hairpin, Eau Rouge the Raidillon , the Combes Esses, the Malmédy corner, the Pouhon double left-hander and the curve at Blanchimont all provide spectacular viewing points. And to finish off your walk visit the exhibitions, activities and boutiques installed in the paddock.
