How does one properly celebrate the most punishing yet most loved racetrack in Europe — and maybe even the world? Cars, cars, and more cars. The organisers of the Nürburgring Classic have jammed as many exciting racing events as possible into just three days, including a Historic Formula 2 Sports Car Club race, a Battle of the Dwarves race, a Gentle Drivers Trophy, and the highlight, the ADAC Eifel race, which will be contested by sports cars for the first time since 2004. And if you want to participate on track, don’t worry — the races listed as Legends on Track are open to public registration, just as long as they adhere to the class regulations, such as Bike Heroes from 1927 to 1950, Historic Grand Prix & Formula Junior Cars, or Sportscars & GTs from 1950 to 1974. With so many events to choose from, all honouring the great cars and men who’ve tackled the circuit over the past 90 years, this weekend is definitely going to be an affair to remember.
