Classical racing cars and classical racing at one of the best racing circuits worldwide: the AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix will once again be without doubt, one of the season's highlights in 2010. From the 13th til 15th August, the Nürburgring will once again transform itself into a rolling open-air museum. The event itself became a classic long ago, or even in fact a „Brand“ which is synonymous for the best in historical motor sport. The AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix with respectively well over 600 participants in the past years, is one of the largest oldtimer racing events in Europe, by which at the traditional Eifel racing circuit – the north loop as well as the modern Grand-Prix circuit - sport, touring and racing cars from at least eight different decades can be seen in plenty of very exciting races. The spectrum ranges from pre-war racing cars through to models from the 80's.
Formula-1 champions and latin lovers
A programme highlight of the 38th AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix will be the appearance of Formula-1 racing cars from the 60's and 70's which will go on start for the Grand Prix Masters. Once again, an International Automobile Federation championship race will take place – the FIA Lurani Trophy for Formula Junior Racing Cars. The formula school of the late 50's has thus once again been revived back to life. Sports car fans will surely get their money's worth many times over. At the World Sportscar Masters, sport prototypes can be seen as were driven at the 24 Hours of Le Mans from the middle of the 60's until the 70's. From the sports car era before that, you'll be attracted by the invitation race for two-seater racing cars and GTs for the years til 1961.
A southern delicacy awaits spectators in the form of the Italian Historic Car Cup, which recalls the great times of the sports cars, sport prototypes and GTs of Italian fabrication. It's a revival of the classics Abarth, Alfa Romeo, Ferrari, Lancia, Maserati and OSCA. Neither the touring cars nor GT-Sport will leave you still wanting more. The well loved races of the GT cars up til 1965 as well as the Revival German Racing Sport Championship – with its spectacular DRM cars til 1981 – are again in 2010, part of the AvD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix programme.
