The Nürburgring Classic 2023 was an inspiring event at the tradition-steeped race track in the Eifel. In glorious sunshine, more than 800 participants took part in eight different race series and numerous special races!



A race event for the whole family

The weekend's 20,000 or so visitors were able to experience eight different racing series and many special runs up close.

An impressive number of 115 pre-war cars found their home in the historic 1927 paddock as part of the event. It is rare to see such a variety of historic cars. The cars were out for photo shoots on partly historic terrain such as the Südschleife, as well as for runs on the Grand Prix circuit and the famous Nordschleife.


Historic Formula 1 and Touring Car Golden Era 

This year, too, there was the opportunity to experience the Formula One flair of the 70s to 90s up close in the Gridwalk. The Formula One starters - The FORCE F1 Legends - provided goose bumps in the Eifel with their infernal sound.

Regardless of whether they were chasing the best times in competition or evenly paced in lovingly constructed classic cars during the regularity tests, the Nürburgring Classic has become a fixed date for the participants.

The well-known Genesis and Phil Collins tribute band "Still Collins" heated up parallel to the atmospheric 2h race until nightfall on Saturday evening, before a fireworks display on Saturday evening made the paddock appear in a special light.

The individual races were fought to the last second, and in some cases the finish line was crossed only fractions of a second apart! This was the case with the touring cars and GTs of the Historic Endurance Cup, the vehicles of the "Golden Era" touring cars or the full starting fields of the Youngtimer Trophy and the battle of the midgets.



The teams impressed with great motorsport in front of the numerous fans

However, the event continues to thrive on the brand clubs of Mercedes, Audi or Ford Capri who used the event at the weekend to present their vehicles or take the opportunity to participate in the regularity tests on the Grand Prix circuit and Nordschleife.

Head of organisation Henning Meyersrenken was extremely satisfied with this year's edition of the Nürburgring Classic: We were once again able to experience an outstanding event. With the best weather, we think we succeeded quite well in creating a special atmosphere again and offering the numerous spectators motorsport to touch.
