A weekend spent at Spa in Belgium is not an usual one, but when it comes to the Classic event, it is truly another story.
This is a race weekend that sees some delicious cars take to the track. But they aren’t here for a parade; they are here to race. There was plenty of diversity too, from a Group C Mercedes-Benz C11 to the Alfa Romeo TZ2.
These classic events don’t get the media coverage they deserve. Seeing these old race cars hurtling through the forest at 140mph after Raidillon is so addictive. Also, seeing which cars was about to be the bravest of late-brakers as they entered the La Source hairpin was utterly impressive.
There are only a few race tracks around the world that have such an amazing forest backdrop. You can stay here for hours. These are true classic events. Even some 40 years later they still have a special atmosphere in the paddock. Be sure we will be present for the 2017 edition...
