A Great 4 Day Break to the 2017 Spa Classic The Ardennes track is now established in classic motor racing and the Spa Classic Event is now the No.1 Classic Car Event in Belgium. Situated in the beautiful Ardennes region the Spa-Francorchamps track was originally designed in 1920 by Jules de Their and Henri Langlois Van Ophem. In those days public roads were used between the Belgian towns of Spa, Malmedy and Stavelot. Due to several fatalities, in 1978 it was decided that racing here would no longer be held here in its original form. The 2017 Spa Classic will feature sports cars, single-seaters, GTs and touring cars filling the grids over the weekend. Besides the two Classic Endurance Racing grids, Group C Racing, Sixties’ Endurance, the Trofeo Nastro Rossa and Historic Formula 2. Besides all the racing action over the weekend another highlight will be the auction, run by Bonhams at the track on Saturday.
