Spa and Le Mans Classics - Spa Classic dates added

With the 2022 classic racing scene heading towards the season’s finish line, it is time to look forward and plan our 2023 adventures.

Back in 2021, the Tours team asked members what they wanted to do with their Caterham and two events kept being mentioned: NC500 and Classic Le Mans. We have already organised the first (or very close), so it is time for us to get back to Le Mans as well as Spa.

2023 is a ‘big’ year, especially for the Le Mans Classic and we are keen to see a major presence next year from Caterham owners. Many of you might recall that the Club has had a big presence at the full 24 hour race event in the past, and we now want to resurrect this atmosphere, with a large Club stand and a huge number of our cars at the Classic event.

2023 is the 10th anniversary of the Classic, as well as the centenary of the 24-hour race first being run, back in the days when the machines were vastly different, but no less exciting.

The Club Tours team is promoting two major tours to both the Spa Classic and the Le Mans Classic - with the objective being that Club members, their family and close friends can enjoy a relaxed event at the heart of the action.

The Club has partnered again with ‘Fasttracktours’ to provide you with the very best experience. As always the plan is to offer a variety of accommodation, ranging from camping (bring your own and pre-arranged and set up), local hotels and use of rooms in a nearby chateau. Fasttracktours has extensive experience of operating car club events at both Spa and Le Mans Classics, having all the necessary contacts with approved contractors and organisers at the circuits.

Spa Classic

Specific dates in May 2023 and associated pricing are still to be confirmed, however we aim to share further details in September once information is released by the event organisers.

Le Mans Classic

Dates are already announced (June 29 – July 2) and again we expect details of pricing to follow during September.

We do already know that there is unprecedented demand for this event, and our plans reflect this. Club members will have the right to book onto the tour first – as well as their family and friends (only if attending with a club member). We plan some Club exclusive opportunities, such as exclusive C&L7C parking and display area in the official ‘Clubs Enclosures’ at both venues, as well as the opportunity to drive the track.

So don’t delay – express your interest in either /or both events now, indicating the type of accommodation preferred and if a circuit drive is of interest.

Also, if you already have a 2023 diary or wall planner, make sure you ‘reserve’ the slots for what promise to be superb events, that will re-launch the Club’s official presence at these prestigious classic racing spectacles - and make sure you transfer the dates to your Club calendar when it arrives!

Dates now confirmed with a choice of a four or five night Tour: May 10th or 11th to May 15th.

We have already received 25+ expressions of interest, so it looks as though 2023 will be a busy year. Fear not however, there is still time to register for both Spa and Le Mans classics here:
