Just a few days before the start of the 2019 Spa Six Hours edition. Beginning from next Wednesday, the Francorchamps Circuit will already be in full swing with the first cars on the track. On the organization's website, all the various lists of participants are already available online and promises a new must-attend event.
Over 100 starters for the six hours endurance
The flagship race of the event scheduled for Saturday 28 September between4 pm and 10 pm, the endurance race reserved for the most magnificent cars of the 1960s will once again bring together some very beautiful people.
Starting with the duo of Graf von Oeynhausen and Nico Verdonck, who will be back in action with one of the many GT40s expected. Against the latter, the Jaguar E-Type and the various Shelbys will certainly be the most formidable. However, if the weather gets in the way as some people are already predicting, there is no doubt that the Lotus Elan in its various versions will also be looking to do well. For the many enthusiasts expected, it will also be a real pleasure to find models each more unique than the other with Aston Martin DB4, Bizzarrini 5300 GT, TVR Griffith or Elva GT160 to name a few. Not to mention the eclecticism of the Marcos 1800 GT, Morgan +4 Supersport, Triumph TR4, Gilbern GT or even the small Mini Countryman (list of course not exhaustive).
With F1, Pre-War, 24h prototypes and many others
A total of eleven rounds will also be included, some of which will be in the race from Friday. This will be the case of the famous pre-war Pre-War Sports Cars before several touring cars that will be part of the Historic Motor Racing News U2TC & Historic Touring Car Challenge with Tony Dron series. To finish off beautifully and at night, the Masters Endurance Legends will give pride of place to the Aston Martins.
The next morning, the Jaguars will be the first to return to the track in qualifying with the Jaguar Classic Challenge. The F1 of the FIA Masters Historic will continue with the much anticipated first race of the day. To wait very pleasantly until the start of the Six Hours, we will also find the sports cars and GTs before 1961 of the Woodcote Trophy & Stirling Moss Trophy before the Historic Sports Car Club of the 70s or the Grand Prix cars of the '20s to '50s of the Historic Grand Prix Association.
On Sunday, we will still discover the pre-66 Masters Pre-66 Touring Cars cars before the famous Group 4 and former queens of the 24h Le Mans of the FIA Masters Historic Sports Car. Gracefully, the event will end with the Gentlemen Drivers of the Pre-66 GT Cars where the pre-66 GTs that competed in the World Endurance Championship will compete against each other. Famous program!

Non-stop activities for 5 days !
Starting on Wednesday, September 25, track sessions without noise limits will allow the first drivers to take the track before the free practice time on Thursday. Entirely free, these first two days will also allow the FBVA to start these numerous activities as it will offer the owners of Pre-War the chance, on Wednesday, to ride on the track before the expected Warm-Up for all the other veterans on Thursday from 4 to 6 pm.
From the following day, the Maison de la FBVA will be waiting for its members and the general public with many activities including the famous Panini poster which will allow enthusiasts of all ages to exchange their vignettes of the cars of the event. In the paddock too, Vintage Village will, of course, provide a unique atmosphere. Among the most anticipated events of the weekend, the Ford GT40 - Le Mans 69 Revival scheduled for Sunday will restore one of the brand's most incredible victories on the track, as well as those in the history of motorsport.
Certainly, an event like the Spa Six Hours would not be possible without faithful partners such as Graf von Faber-Castell or the Lions Club Liège Hauts Sarts. With 6 to Six and Lounge Bar packages, there are also many ways you can invite your friends, family, and other partners to this historic event.
