Spa Classic, May 18-19, 2019

Nestling in the magnificent forests of the Ardennes, Spa-Francorchamps is one of the truly great circuits. The combination of tight bends, sweeping curves and the rises and falls as it winds its way through the countryside is simply awesome. It's fast, challenging and exhilarating. Drivers love it and fear it and for spectators it is an amazing spectacle. And it is even better when you drive it in your own classic car!

The 9th Spa Classic event will give you the opportunity to watch from a variety of grandstands, to explore the paddocks and even, if you wish, to make your way through the woods to the far reaches of the track to enjoy the racing from the high banks at Pouhon, Blanchimont or Fagnes.

Throughout the weekend the paddocks are open to the public and car club collections create an inspiring museum of motoring history on the infield of the track. On track there's an impressive line up of cars and grids to suit all tastes.

As with the Le Mans Classic, track laps are available thoughout the weekend.

Following the great success of the 2018 event from the organisers of Le Mans Classic, 2019 sees the 9th running of the Spa Classic. Located at the fantastic Spa Francorchamps circuit in the beautiful Ardennes region, the event will feature a wide variety of historic grids including the following:
