The AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix is considered to be one of the most traditional motorsport festivals for classic cars in Europe and thus marks the highlight of the historic motorsport season in Germany. With about 500 historic race cars from the end of the twentieth until the beginning of the eightieth, the event will provide a virtual time travel through the history of international motorsports.

The Oldtimer is the premier festival of historic motorsport in Germany. Hundreds of historic racing cars compete in numerous starting fields at the Nürburgring. Pre-war sports cars can be seen as well as formula cars from practically all epochs, including the FIA Championship for Historic Formula 1 cars.

A great emphasis is also placed on sports cars and GTs – here the range even extends to the present day, because recently the Masters Endurance Legends (cars from the Endurance World Championship and Le Mans up to 2006) are on board, and the Porsche Carrera Cup builds a bridge to current motorsport.

AvD Oldtimer Grand Prix Events

More than 20 races and regularity tests are planned, in addition all the practice sessions for the various race classes and demonstration runs.

  • Formula 1 Legends of the 70s-90s
  • 1961 Grand Prix revival – the birth of 1.5-litre Formula 1
  • AvD Historic Marathon for Touring Cars and GT on the Nordschleife
  • FIA Lurani Trophy for Formula Junior Cars
  • Evening race for two-seater racing cars and GT up to 1960/61
  • Revival German Racing Championship / 100-Miles Trophy
  • A Gentle Drivers Trophy

Iberian Historic Endurance

The fascination with racing in historic cars goes far beyond the competition scope. Each weekend of racing is a journey through time for the drivers and their companions – a journey to an era when the racing atmosphere was a lot more relaxed and fun. The goal of the Historic Endurance is to provide all the participants with a special experience of conviviality, emotion, and nostalgia. This competition gives meaning and sense to the acquisition and possession of a historic racing car, regardless of class or power.

Adrenaline and emotion are sure things when visiting the most exciting and challenging circuits in Southern Europe, where the pleasant weather provides excellent conditions for driving, and the transport of vehicles and equipment is easy and affordable. Some events happen within the context of major classic cars festivals, where the atmosphere becomes even more special.

The Iberian Historic Endurance is an organization of gentlemen drivers for gentleman drivers.  The also driver Diogo Ferrão is in charge of this set-up, bringing into this Iberian competition his expertise and vast experience, which includes several appearances in various events, such as the Goodwood Revival, Le Mans Classic and Old-timer Grand Prix in Nordschleife.

The Iberian Historic Endurance is not intended for drivers looking purely to win races. We are a constantly growing group of friends, a gathering of the participants’ families and the teams, going far beyond a 50-minute race.

If you have an interest in participating or in learning more what this competition is really about, please send us an email (diogo.ferrao@historicendurance.com). We love getting to know all drivers and teams individually and helping out with whatever we can.

Carrera Los 80’s

The late 1970’s and 80’s were the golden years of the Tourism races, with several Tourism Championships flourishing across Europe, notably the European Tourism Championship endurance races. These races were very popular with the public with big flame spitting Touring cars led by Roberto Ravaglia, Steve Soper or Tom Walkinshaw between others.

The idea is to offer a new championship for more “modern” tourism racing cars, but always in the spirit of the Iberian Historic Endurance, which stands for respect for opponents, a Gentlemen Driver attitude and the already famous 3 C’s (No Crashing, No Cheating and No Complaining), in all the events that will take place in Spain.

Historic but familiar, Group D has prototypes and GT cars from the mid-1990’s all the way through the early 2000s.

GROUP E 2000-2018

The fastest and most contemporary class, Group E features prototypes and GT machines that raced at Daytona as recently as a decade ago.

GROUP F – 2000-2018

Due to the popularity of the current prototypes and GT machines we have expanded Group E.  Group F will encompass the older generation of the Prototypes and GT machines.

GROUP G HSR CARS

Home to the HSR classes that are not represented in the other six groups, Group G lets competitors with race cars that were never eligible to race at Daytona a chance to establish some new history.

 

Complementing the Classic 24 Hour will be HSR’s signature Sprint Races & Endurance Series.

This year’s Historic Sandown meeting will once again provide a feast of top motor racing action. There’s plenty to see on all three days from November 6 – 8, 2020.

The very best sports, racing and touring cars from yesteryear will battle it out for line honours (and bragging rights) in an atmosphere of fun, fury and the fabulous. Widely regarded as one of Australia’s most important historic race meetings, Historic Sandown attracts competitors from all corners of Australia as well as enthusiasts from overseas. Forty events, 400 historic race cars and many of Australia’s greatest motor racing personalities will be on hand.

There will be plenty of off-track entertainment, as well including static displays of over 500 vehicles, and you’ll be made especially welcome if you and your friends arrive in your classic or collectible car – (or even on your old motorcycle). It all adds to the excitement!

Everything is conveniently located at Sandown Park, and there’s free access to the pits and the grandstand where excellent viewing of the trackside action can be enjoyed. A fine array of trade stands are added features, so come and grab a bargain or a piece of motoring history as well as a beverage and bite to eat from a range of food outlets.

Jarama Classic @ Circuito del Jarama
Nov 6 – Nov 8 all-day

Historic racing at the Jarama Classic

The Jarama Classic is always one of Iberian Historic Endurance’s most popular events, thanks to its very fluid layout with short straights and multiple fast turns, making it perfect for the classic-contemporary models of the era when the circuit was designed. This edition will feature Historic Endurance as the headliner, with other classic competitions at the same time.

Jarama is an old-fashioned circuit, perfect for our classic cars and a driver’s favorite. Opened in 1967 as a permanent circuit, its layout has never been changed, being exactly the same where, among other names, Hill, Clark, Stewart, Fittipaldi, Andretti and Villeneuve triumphed.

The Jarama Classic is a weekend exclusively for classic cars, with Iberian Historic Endurance as the headliner.

Estoril Racing Festival @ Circuito do Estoril

Historic racing features at the Estorill Racing Festival

The Estoril Racing Festival is a Luso-British event that closes the season on a high note. Having started the current format of the race in 2012, the event has been growing in popularity and registrations.

The Estoril round is particularly special in that it offers endurance competition with a symbolic Le Mans style start, driving shared between two to four drivers and includes refueling. To further enhance the experience, the last hour of the race is held at nightfall, with lights on, and in the style of a 24-hour race as at Le Mans and Spa.

Estoril Racing Festival Events

Full programme of the Estoril 250km to be announced but racing will include a Grand Finale Endurance spirit with 4 stints and refuelling.

This is the season ending finale with a big party, fireworks and the New Year’s Eve gala at the end!
