First run tentatively for 100 minutes in 2015, then as a full three-hour race in 2016, the Spa 3 Hours has become a popular tradition at the Spa Summer Classic race meeting in the long, languid days of June, this year on 26-27. A collaboration between Summer Classic and Spa Six Hours organiser, Vincent Collard, Diogo Ferrao of Iberian Endurance, and the Classic Sports Car Club, it has grown in popularity and now fields full grids, which means over 75 on the big Spa circuit. For Appendix K touring and GT/GTS cars up to 1976, there is also a class for pre-‘66 under-two-litre prototypes. If you want to enter, don’t wait too long.
The Spa Summer Classic is also a race meeting for many of the clubs, not only from Belgium, but also from the UK and Europe that usually only run nationally, but look forward to a once-a-year outing to the fabulous Francorchamps circuit. Amongst these will be the Classic Sports Car Club from the UK, the Colmore YTCC from the Netherlands, joining the Belgian Belcar Historic & Youngtimer Cup. A full programme of races and entry forms will be published soon at spasummerclassic.com.
