A prestigious line-up of races is planned for the Spa Six Hours race meeting on the last weekend of September.  Highlight, as always, will be the Spa Six Hours race itself, which will run for the 31st time this year.  A new timetable, debuted last year, has free practice on Wednesday instead of Thursday, with qualifying and racing on Friday and Saturday, culminating in the Six Hour race in its traditional Saturday evening slot and ending the sporting part of the meeting.  Sunday is given over to a track day for classic cars.

The Masters are bringing all of their grids, from their Gentlemen Drivers pre-’66 GT and Touring cars, pre-‘76 sportscars (Sports Car Legends), F1 cars (Racing Legends), Endurance Legends cars up to 2016, all the way up to the GT Trophy for Cup cars up to 2018.

From Motor Racing Legends will come the Pre-War Sports Cars and the Royal Automobile Club Woodcote and Stirling Moss Trophies in a combined race.  

Historic Formula Junior is back this year with a two-race programme, as is the Historic Grand Prix Cars Association, that will be running cars up to 1966.  

The two new HSCC/HVM Interseries for F2 and F3 cars are on the timetable after a long absence from the event.

Finally, usually seen at the Spa Summer Classic, this year the Classic Sports Car Club will be joining the Six Hour Meeting with their Classic K series, for pre-‘66 Appendix K GT and Touring cars, as well as the Swinging Sixties series for all sports, saloons and GT cars produced in the 1950s and 1960s, with cars up to the end of 1977 running on carburettors.

The meeting will be a true pageant of racing history with cars from pre-war to almost the present day.  Contact individual race organisers for entries.
