Vintage Meeting

Next weekend, almost 90 vehicles from the early days of the Eifel race track will come together in the Historic Paddock at the Nürburgring for the big "Vintage Meeting". In the pit quad from 1927 - characteristic with its old corrugated iron fronts - legendary racing cars of legendary brands will then meet.



Racing cars from the years 1920 to 1940

The Nürburgring Classic is the setting for what is now the 12th Vintage Meeting, a gathering of pre-war racing cars... all from the years 1920 to 1940. In addition, Veritas racing cars from 1950 are also at the start. This is the brand that was also built at the Nürburgring at the time and was very successful in the sports car races of the early 1950s.


List of the participants


The Vintage Meeting is a meeting place for collectors and owners of old racing cars, such as those that made the first major prizes and racing events so attractive from the inaugural race in 1927 until before the Second World War, when a good 200,000 - 300,000 visitors made the pilgrimage to the most difficult and legendary race track in the world.


87 teams come to the historic paddock with their vehicles 

Old names such as Caracciola, Nuvolari or Birkin; Chiron, Varzi or von Brauchitsch come to life - brands such as Bugatti, Bentley, Maserati, Delahaye, Riley, Alfa Romeo and Aston Martin take on meaning again through the unique racing car exhibits, all of which are in driving action.


Tickets for the Race Event


Five Alfa Romeos, eight Bentleys, eight BMWs and also eight Bugattis are at the start alone. 87 teams come with vehicles and transform the old paddock at the Ring into a real time travel place. Hectic activity prevails during the preparations for the start, calmness between the races. Late in the morning on Saturday, the show-down of the pre-war races takes place on the Grand Prix circuit.



The Le Mans start is reminiscent of old races

Sent into the race with a Le Mans start, the drivers take off for the "Elephant Race", which commemorates the old 24h races in LeMans in the years 1923 - 1934. Suddenly Monaco, Le Mans and Nürburgring are one - because it's all about sportsmanship, records from back then, friendships among the drivers and a lot of gentlemanly attitude. It's something you shouldn't miss.

Visitors to the Nürburgring Classic are presented with an incomparable sight when so many pre-war cars come together for the meeting at the Nürburgring as rarely before.
