Karin Kölzer and Stefan Eckhardt, organisers of the German-based Youngtimer Trophy for cars from homologation years 1966-1991, have presented an eight-event calendar for 2021 that spans three countries for its 29th season. Races include a three-hour support race on the world’s most demanding racetrack, the Nürburgring Nordschleife, where the Youngtimers will be on the racecard of the ADAC 24h race.

For 2021 most races are of an hour’s duration, but the visit to the Nürburgring GP track will be run in two 30-minute heats with combined results. Such is the demand for places on the grid, cars will run in two race groups. From the small displacement cars such as NSU TT, VW Polo and Audi 50; to the stars of the 1970s like Opel Kadett C Coupe or Ford Escort; to the most recent vehicles, such as BMW M3 or Mercedes 190E, models that were successful in the DTM; or Group 5 Porsches that are regularly seen on the podium, the Youngtimer Trophy hosts a huge variety of machinery.
