Track-pre­pared Jaguar E-types, Ford Capris and BMW 6-se­ries are among the stars of a mo­tor­sport­themed flag­ship dis­play at Bel­gium’s big­gest clas­sic show this week­end.

All the cars on the Bel­gian Rac­ing Vic­to­ries stand are linked to vic­to­ries on the coun­try’s race cir­cuit.

‘This is go­ing to be a spec­tac­u­lar ad­di­tion to this year’s show,’ a spokesper­son says. ‘Many of the cars that took part in the leg­endary du­els on the cir­cuits of Zolder and Fran­cor­champs will be on the stand, so it’s one you won’t want to miss.’

It’s part of a re­vamped fourth hall at An­twerp’s Expo ex­hi­bi­tion cen­tre, which will al­low more clubs to take part this year.

More than 350 ex­hibitors from 14 dif­fer­ent coun­tries are tak­ing part this year, with up­wards of 400 clas­sics from across the Benelux coun­tries – and from Bri­tish, French and Ger­man deal­ers – for sale.

There’s also a big club pres­ence at An­twerp. Among this year’s at­ten­dees are Bel­gium’s Golf GTI club, who’ll be mark­ing the model’s 40th an­niver­sary by dis­play­ing one of the very first MkIs, as well as the Hadi-Mazda Club, which will be com­ing across the bor­der from the Nether­lands to show off their mem­bers’ Ja­panese clas­sics.­s_uk.php
