RAC­ING EVENTS

What­ever your favourite flavour of mo­tor sport, there’s some­thing to look for­ward to in 2016

Octane - - // // BUYING SELLING OWNING -

Less crowded than the Fes­ti­val or Re­vival, this event re­vis­its the best-ever tin-top rac­ing pe­riod. New fea­tures for 2016 in­clude races for Ed­war­dian cars and two-stroke GP bikes, plus demos from Group 5 sports cars, Ground Ef­fect F1 cars and Su­per Tour­ers. Or­gan­ised by the folks who run Tour Auto, and held on the leg­endary Cir­cuit de Spa-Fran­cor­champs in the Bel­gian Ar­dennes. Classes in­clude Clas­sic En­durance Rac­ing, Group C, 1960s En­durance, Tro­feo Nas­tro Rosso and the Heritage Tour­ing Cup. The pin­na­cle of his­toric rac­ing, with fierce com­pe­ti­tion on a cir­cuit un­changed in lay­out since 1970. This year Good­wood hon­ours the late Sir Jack Brab­ham, and there’s an Austin A35-only race to en­joy in ad­di­tion to the grids packed with priceless race­cars and beau­ti­ful GTs. Fur­ther at­trac­tions, in­clud­ing a vin­tage fun­fair and WW2 air­cra% in ac­tion, are too many to list.
