Mercedes 300SL “Gullwing”

Last year I visited Techno Classica for the first time, I was quite amazed at the size and quality of this classic cars fair. So I decided to go back this year. Spent an hour stuck in a traffic jam to get to the parking in Essen but it was worth it. I saw some very nice and exclusive cars, for the first time I saw a Ferrari 250SWB California Spyder. Lamborghini were well represented, Countach’s seem to be very hot at the moment. Mercedes was celibrating the 60 year anniversary of the SL and had brought some of the prototypes from their museum.

Spa 6 hours 2011

Ferrari 330 GTO

I’ve spent 3 days at Spa Francorchamps enjoying some fabulous historic racing. A very wide range of classic cars were racing, everything from a Mini Cooper to a more recent McLaren F1 GTR longtail. This is my favourite event of the year, historic racing is so much more fun to watch then modern racing. The way these classic cars slide through the corners is a real joy to see. The weather was perfect with sun all weekend long, that must have helped to bring some more spectators to this event. While last year most of the grandstands were near empty this year a decent crowd turned up. And for good reason :) A small selection of the photos I made can be seen in 3 galleries:
