Spa Classic 2013 – Results and Pictures

The Spa Classic 2013 was held 24-26 May at the famed 4.352 mile, 20-turn Spa-Francorchamps track in Belgium. A crowd of more than 13,000 enthusiasts witnessed the 3rd running of the Spa Classic with its strong grids and competitive vintage racing action.

With the Ardennes region’s predictably unpredictable weather, the three racing days were plagued by chilly and fickle weather that made Eau Rouge and the the rest of Spa that much more challenging. In addition to nine classic car grids, this year the greatest hours of Touring were revived with two grids dedicated to endurance racing. To celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Porsche 911, a complete grid of this model was present and on Sunday, a parade of over 50 cars was organised on the track.

Photographer Julien Mahiels documented the 2013 Spa Classic, offering the following picture gallery that shows the varied field of entrants and the Spa racing circuit. We split up the 350 pictures that Julien captured into two galleries. The first gallery starting below features our favorite 100 images, all displayed in the full-width view of our website. The second gallery, complete with race report and results, can be found on the last page of the article and gives a comprehensive view of all the photographs.

  1. Great images of Spa and the very excellent cars in the race. Love the flame-throwing M1 and 935, the GT40s, the Italians…and you captured them all beautifully.

  2. Tut, tut, tut.

    The name is Jim Pace and he started the last “Jubilee Porsche” race from the pitlane in a 1974 RSR and won by twenty seconds in pouring rain, an outstanding feat, but not even a photo of him or the car in your report.

    Also, CER 1 was won by Jean-Michel Martin and Jurgen Barth. Martin started from the middle of the grid in a Porsche 934/5 and beat all the sports-prototypes, leading by the third lap. Jurgen Barth took over and completed the job. “Twould be nice if your reporters were accurate.

  3. What an outstanding group of photographs, the compositions are great, use of background for design effect and color, camera angles, etc., I’m very impressed and thank you for showing these.
