Overview

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.

The Spa Classic 2017 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 will 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. There is expected to be over 1500 cars on display at this years event with clubs from all over Europe in attendance. 

Our three night Spa Classic 2017 itinerary gives you the flexibility to come and go as you please between your hotel and the track with the certainty that your circuit parking and event tickets are all included in the price.

Circuit & Tickets

General admission, paddock access and grandstands are included in your Spa Classic tour price.  Here is a preview of what to expect on the grid during the weekend: 

Classic Endurance Racing 1 & 2
Classic Endurance echoes a period from 1966 to 1979 when endurance racing ruled over motorsport. A glorious period for the Fords GT40, Porsches 910, Ferraris 512… and their drivers: Jacky Ickx, Henri Pescarolo, Gérard Larrousse… Their playground was not limited to the extraordinary 24 Hours of Le Mans, but spread over the greatest European circuits in the scope of the World Sports Car Championship.

Group C
At the end of 1982, the FIA launched a closed prototype category. The car manufacturers’ answer was instantaneous. 25 cars participated in the Endurance World Championship between 1983 and 1991.

Porsches 956, Jaguars XJ R12, Sauber-Mercedes engage in historic jousting contests. The prize list  of this glorious era ended  with the French hat trick with the Peugeot 905 at the 24H du Mans in 1992.

Heritage Touring Cup
The Heritage Touring Cup echoes the glorious times (1966-1984) of the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC). The manufacturers battling for glory with BMW and their 3.0 CSL or 635CSI, Ford with the Escort and Capri as well as Jaguar with the XJ12C Broad speed followed by the XJ-S to name but a few. The Heritage Touring Cup, an era and a style, promising some great track action.

Sixties Endurance
The Sixties’ Endurance, dedicated to the pre-63 Sports and pre-66 GTs, offers a wonderful opportunity to admire on track all the icons of the World Championship from that time. Special endurance highlights, these two-hour races bring together a wide range of cars for both the period, 1950 to 1965, and the capacity, with the 250 GT Berlinettas, AC Cobras or Jaguar E-Types.

Trofeo Nastro Rosso
Born in 2010 the Trofeo Nastro Rosso, is dedicated to Italian sports cars and GTs from the late fifties to 1965. Laying emphasis on the quality of its cars and fair play on the track, the Trofeo offers a unique occasion to see again the golden age icons of the great transalpine cars.
