Spa Classic - May 13-15 2016 (Belgium)

Post by Jeroen »

And glad this one's coming up soon again, one of my absolute favorites: a wonderful track and surroundings, a fun packed program and it's not the other side of the world either. If you want to can making it a wonderful weekend out and go to Spa on Sat (best day traditionally) and the Ring on Sun which is only 1 hour from Spa! Anyway, Spa Classic always means many wonderful classes including Group C, and of course loads of BMW action!

Just ploughed through the provisional entry lists, clearly not complete yet but still, already see nice things. Bobby Rahal is going to participate in a 911 RSR apparently, Charles Veillard is keeping his word by being back with the E21 320 Group 5 car, and more BMW candy too! Several E24's, M1's and the CSL's include several original Luigi examples. In less than a month we'll be having a fabulous time again!

Like the e12!
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car. Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
