Psyching up for six hours of pure adrenalin at Spa-Francorchamps

If you go down to the Belgian woods this weekend, you’re sure of a high-octane, ear-bleeding surprise. Hundreds of historic racing drivers will descend on the legendary Spa-Francorchamps circuit for the famous Six Hours. And Classic Driver will be there in force…

One of the hidden gems on the historic racing calendar, the season-closing Spa Six Hours attracts the world’s finest historic racing drivers and cars yet manages to retain its non-commercial charm and plucky spirit. The endurance race is also one of historic racing’s most challenging feats, especially when you factor in the circuit’s microclimate, which all but guarantees torrential downpours at some point during the weekend. 

For the 2018 edition, we’re joining the event’s new title sponsor Graf von Faber-Castell. We’ll be driving from its stunning headquarters in Stein, Germany, to Spa with Count von Faber-Castell himself in the new Bentley Continental GT, before revelling in the racing atmosphere throughout the weekend. So keep your eyes peeled on both the Magazine and our Instagram channel for all the latest action from deep in the Ardennes forest.
