The European historic motorsport calendar features many highlights. We’ve just returned from the 2019 Spa Classic, which was a record breaking event, and are already preparing to head to another highlight – the 2019 Nürburgring Classic.

The iconic historic race meeting will be held over the weekend of 24th, 25th and 26th of May and make use of both the grand prix race track and the legendary Nordschleife.

The 2019 event has no less than 12 races and regularity tests scheduled, including the Tourenwagen Classics featuring former DTM and STW touring cars. This is a successful racing series, which is sure to put on a good show as it gives machines of the Golden DTM Era of the 80s and 90s the chance to make a heroic appearance and bring the personalities and cars of the era back to mind.

Furthermore the CanAm & Interserie, Youngtimer Trophy, Dunlop Endurance Cup, 100 Miles Trophy and the tiny cars from the Battle of the Dwarfs will be present. A vintage meeting will be held in the historic paddock of the Nürburgring, and a meeting for historic race transporters is a particularly fun addition.

The Nürburging Classic features historic touring cars, GTs, sportscars and almost anything between. We’ll be heading to the legendary circuit this weekend over the 24th, 25th and 26th of May to cover the action and put together a mega gallery right here. Stay tuned!
