The AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix at the Nürburgring is one of the oldtimer community’s outstanding meeting places, and a season highlight for lovers of classic racing sport. On the second August weekend (from 9th – 11th Aug) in the Eifel, visitors can expect more than 20 races and regularity tests at the 47th edition of this great event.

For this year, organizers attracted the following series and championships, including three FIA Historic Championships:

  • FIA Masters Sports Car Championship
  • FIA Masters Formula One Championship
  • FIA Lurani Trophy for Formel Junior cars
  • Revival German Racing Championship / 100 Meilen Trophy
  • Two-seater race cars and GT cars until 1960/61
  • Historic Grand Prix Cars
  • Tourenwagen Classics
  • Formula 3 from 1964 until 1984
  • Touring Cars and GTs
  • Masters Endurance Legends
  • FCD RacingSeries
  • Vintage Sports Car Trophy
  • A Gentle Drivers Trophy
  • Gentlemen Drivers – GT up to 1965

Around 500 historic racing cars will be on display at the Nürburgring – and in many, the most famous stars of yesteryear will be at the wheel. One of the crowd pullers will be the former DTM and STW touring cars, gathered in the Touring Car Classics.

Even in the “regular” races of the Touring Car Classics, many well known pilots climb into legendary vehicles, such as Klaus Ludwig. But the Nürburgring Oldtimer Grand Prix is characterized by a particularly active participation, in which many famous pilots from the past feature. Former German heroes such as Harald Grohs, Prince Leopold von Bayern, Otto Rensing, Olaf Manthey, Armin Hahne, Klaus Niedzwiedz, Roland Asch and Kris Nissen from Denmark are present.

The 2019 AVD Oldtimer Grand Prix will be held at the Nürburgring over the 9th to 11th of August. More information and tickets can be found at the official event website here.
