2018 series calendar: from Catalonia to Emilia-Romagna
Next year Peter Auto will put on a programme of five meetings for entrants in its series on circuits in the above regions as well as in the Belgian Ardennes, Burgundy and Provence.
The 2017 season organised by Peter Auto has just finished and the 2018 calendar of events that will play host to the seven series by Peter Auto, Classic Endurance Racing 1 & 2, Heritage Touring Cup, Sixties’ Endurance, Trofeo Nastro Rosso, Group C Racing and Euro F2 Classic, is already available!
Next year the French organiser’s classics will again be part of the programme as well as a newcomer, l’Espiritu de Montjuïc 2018, plus a return to a circuit that the drivers really love, Imola.
Spa-Classic (18-20 May): created in 2011 on the drivers’ favourite circuit, the Belgian meeting has gradually expanded and today it is among the major European rendezvous for historic races.
Grand Prix de l’Age d’Or (8-10 June): Peter Auto starting organising this event again in 2014, and this blue-riband meeting in the world of historic racing has now recaptured its past glory. The drivers love its circuit that has been totally revamped; and the “art de vivre bourguignon” makes it a choice rendezvous.
The Dix Mille Tours (31st August-2nd September): the 9th staging of the Dix Mille Tours du Castellet is being held earlier than usual, and it will take full advantage of the summer weather reigning in Provence on a track that hosted the French Formula 1 Grand Prix a few weeks earlier.
Imola-Classic (26-28 October): next year marks a return for the drivers to the very popular Italian circuit that they already visited in 2012, 2013 and 2016. This meeting at the end of October will bring down the curtain on the season of the series by Peter Auto with a warm Italian flourish.
Espiritu de Montjuïc 2018 (6-8 April): the rendezvous at the beginning of April prepared by Peter Auto will kick off the season of the series by Peter Auto on Catalonian soil. What’s more it takes place on a track that was often the theatre of Formula 1 events, and our entrants were champing at the bit to have their first taste of it at the wheel of their historic racing cars.
The full 2018 Peter Auto calandar, including the other events organised by the Paris-based company, will be published in the coming weeks.
