Had an awesome day yesterday at the Historic Grand Prix Racing, at Zandvoort circuit.
Epic races between 22 pre-'80s Formula 1 cars, besides many, MANY other classes, all vintage.
'61-'65 Historic Grand Prix for example, and the Dutch National Historic GT championship with Arie Luyendyk!
Got home late with ears still humming from the great sound of V8, V10, and V12 engines screaming at around 270Kmh.
A few photo's from Parc Ferme.
















I'll stop now Smile

I LOVE classic/vintage cars. Goodwood festival of speed is on my bucket list. Don't stop- more pics please.
You need to have balls of steel ( or crazy ) to race with skinny tyres & drum brakes

Did someone mention Classic Cars??

Some photos from my family day out at a recent VW show which took place at Tatton Park/UK on the 4th August.

My Dad managed to pick one of those up along with a set of EMPI wheels. Neither have been fitted to his bug yet scratch

Some beauties there Stefan, specifically the 2nd from the left, there's something about that roofstyle i like, the leaning to the front and the low suspension.

Those Fiats look like the front half of a Mini,
and the back half of a Beetle welded together.Very Happy
