The Sun Sets on a Classic Motoring Event

The sun has now truly set on the Velodrom Millenáris, if the rumors are true. Some say the track will be demolished soon to make way for a modern sport arena and this would imply the end of this event. But we simply can’t afford to lose our small scale Goodwood Revival, as there is no other event in our country where anyone can get a taste of rare historical machines in an appropiate background.

Last year, as I walked back to my car following the Pebble Beach Concours, having lost count of all the amazing cars I'd passed in the mulch-covered parking lots alone, it occurred to me that someone could easily spend the entirety of Monterey Car Week without attending a single event and still get their fill of an incredible range of cars.

Blasting Around the Moscow Classic Grand Prix

It's hard to spot a classic car on Moscow's streets for many reasons, one of which is the weather being too unstable and destructive to old metal. Fortunately, classic car owners start clubs and do go racing. This year a three-stage championship for classic cars, called the Moscow Classic Grand Prix, took place on Moscow Raceway–a racetrack on which a stage of DTM is also held...

Many are present including Porsche 911SCs, Opel Asconas, even vaunted Lancias such as the Stratos, 037, and the insane Lancia Delta S4 Group B have gathered. But at this early stage, it’s just a pleasant stroll to loosen up the pistons and gears before the weekend’s Special Stage.

This Is Why the Le Mans Classic Is a Premier Vintage Race

Really, it's a pretty simple formula: take a group of exciting, historic race cars add a classic, barely-quieted track, and 100,000 rabid fans and you have magic. The traditional Le Mans standing start is included for older groups too. What's that? Before 1970, the drivers and cars were inconveniently placed across the track from one another forcing racers to run across the track to their cars to start.

Access to this amazing machinery is not restricted, however, as the open-paddock format allows visitors to get close, providing a rare glimpse and the chance to hear the wonderful, old (and more modern) racers. Often without any kind of noise restrictions and with the teams' goal fixed on absolute power, you can feel the sound energy hit you in the chest as the burbling V8s and raspy V12s fire up.

The race runs clockwise around the 2.9 km perimeter of Bergamo's walls just as in 1935 when racing legend Tazio Nuvolari won the race in his Alfa Romeo P3. The Piazza della Cittadella served as the paddock and it was here where the action was centered the morning of June 15. People strolled around, having a look at all the wonderful cars, and pausing for an espresso at one of the cafes.

With every hour that ticked by, the excitement and anticipation grew, until the carrier arrived to transport the car to Cernobbio. After it was loaded and the truck's large tailgate closed, at that moment, every worker who spent so much time and attention on the car watched it leave, just hoping it would impress the jury, and win a prize.

Everything was as it should be: engines singing and sometimes the needles were buried well above redlines. The summits were, of course, still white with snow that wouldn't let go. Our car cut through dense fog and into sunshine on arrival. However, we were there to drive, not explore nature, so we pushed on. The pace was again swift...
