First Time to Spa-Francorchamps.....Spa Classic 2014

With my trip to Luxembourg, I was able to make the 1 hour drive up to Circuit Spa-Francorchamps for the 2014 Spa-Classic historic races. There was a really nice mix of cars there highlighted to Group C prototypes, F2 formula cars, and the Sports Racers and GT cars of the Classic Endurance Racing classes.

My favorite cars of the weekend were the Group C. This was my favorite:

Here is onboad video from one of the car owners....pretty spectacular noise:

Here are some photos from the weekend:

  1. So weird to see a car of that caliber running today with a traditional H-pattern gearbox. One of the coolest in-car vids I've seen. What a business trip you had!
