Spa-Francorchamps is presently counting down to the 30th edition of the renowned Spa Six Hours, one of Europe’s biggest historic motorsport events, traditionally held two weeks after the Goodwood Revival. The 30th edition will take place from September 30th until Sunday October 2nd, and no less than 10 series will fill the grid over the weekend.

The highlight of the event is without a doubt the unique six-hour endurance race on Saturday afternoon, which will see twenty Ford GT40s join a  100-car strong field.

Besides the Spa Six Hours, Masters Historic Racing is present with an impressive line up including the Racing Legends, Sports Car Legends, Gentlemen Drivers, Endurance Legends and Pre-66 Touring Cars. Also present are the Historic Grand Prix Car Association, Pre-War Sports Cars and Motor Racing Legends from the UK who will present  the Woodcote Trophy & Stirling Moss Trophy. The program is completed with Historic Formula Junior and the Belgian Historic Up.

Masters Racing Legends is open to 3-litre Formula One cars from 1966 through to 1985, while Masters Sports Car Legends features Le Mans-style sports cars and Group 4 period cars from 1962 up to 1974. A mini-endurance race is contested by the Masters Gentlemen Drivers with pre-1966 GT cars.

Endurance cars from a more modern era are gathered into the Masters Endurance Legends, featuring prototypes and GTs from 1995-2016. Fans of historic saloon cars are treated with production saloons prior to 1966 in the Masters Pre-66 Touring Cars.

Tickets for this unique and not to be missed event can be bought online here.
