Variety, quality and quantity for Spa Summer Classic!
The traditional first Roadbook 'competition' meeting at the beginning of the summer, Spa Summer Classic, will welcome fans of cars from the past, but also from the present, on Thursday 6, Friday 7, Saturday 8 and Sunday 9 July at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps. The first day will be reserved for free practice, followed by a series of qualifying sessions and races on Friday and throughout the rest of the weekend.
The 15th edition of Spa Summer Classic will once again be eclectic with a race programme featuring cars from the '60s, '70s, '80s, '90s and even the early 2000s. This means that all generations of spectators will have their landmarks.
The traditional headliner of the Spa Summer Classic, the Spa 3 Hours, will pit touring cars against grand touring cars until 1976, with a late day event ending at nightfall! Considered as the 'little sister' of the Spa Six Hours Endurance, the Spa 3 Hours event welcomes ever more prestigious crews, so that the hunt for the succession of Christophe Van Riet and Fred Bouvy, winners in 2021 and 2022 at the wheel of a Shelby Cobra, is more open than ever!
Amongst the novelties of this year, the SuperSixties, known until last year as the NK HTGT, is highlighted. The programme includes touring cars and GT cars up to 1965. The Dunlop Gentle Drivers' 65 (GT, touring and sports cars up to 1965) and the Dunlop Historic Endurance Cup (GT and touring cars up to 1981), which originated in Germany, are also new to this meeting, as is the Bimmer Race Car Challenge, which will pit all types of racing BMWs against each other!
Once again, Spa Summer Classic will be one of the highlights of the increasingly popular Belcar Historic Cup. The NK GT&TC, the Triumph Competition and the British HTGT, the impressive Can-Am and Sportcars of the CanAm & Sportcars series, the Colmore - Youngtimers Touring Car Challenge and the Motor Classic Open Formula, which with its F3, F4 and Formula Renault cars will bring a single-seater touch to the event.
In short, a more than solid cocktail, which the public will be able to attend free of charge, with access to the whole circuit, including the new stands of the Raidillon and the Endurance zone.
So, are you ready for a new dive in time, Spa, Cars & Sun style?
