Vorkriegstreffen Elefanten-Rennen

Vintage Meeting | May 26. - 28. | Casual get-together of pre-war drivers | Time Travel 1927

Once again, the pre-war cars are coming back to the Ring in 2023. In the historic paddock, the original location of the race track from 1927 and the oldest part of the race track still standing, the paddock of the Prewars can be found from 26 to 28 May 2023. This is where the big Mercedes, the nimble Bugattis and MGs, the racing cars of the period from 1920 to before the Second World War, were parked in the early years of the Eifel circuit. This is where the diverse pre-war marques and historic racing cars will return in the Nürburgring Classic 2023.

Meeting in the historic paddock

Allowed are the years of construction 1910 to 1940 - and also the years of construction 1941 - 1953 (here the Healey Silverstones, the Veritas and Allards as well as early Jaguars) are also welcome. For other car types and younger years of construction, please contact the organisation of the pre-war meeting directly This email address is being protected from spambots.

As many of the old paddock garages as possible in today's Nürburgring operations will be used. Here in the old pit area, the atmosphere from the opening race on 18 June 1927 can be felt directly, when Rudolf Caracciola in his Mercedes 680S was the first winner to cross the finish line on what was then a course consisting of the South Curve, Nordschleife and Grand Prix circuit.

The Vintage Meeting takes place parallel to the Nürburgring Classic. However, participation with a pre-war car at the Vintage Meeting is officially considered independent of the supporting programme and the event parts of the Nürburgring Classic (mainly in the Grand Prix paddock) in terms of bookings.


Rides on the race tracks and a hunting trip

Rides for pre-war drivers at the meeting are traditionally scheduled on the Nordschleife, the Grand Prix circuit, some picturesque parts of the Südschleife (for photo shoots) and with a "hunting trip" through the Eifel. The big "get-together" of the car owners, the meeting with friends, joint petrol talks and finally familiar conviviality again create a special community.
