Jarama Classic 2017
Location: Autovía A-1, km 28, 28700 San Sebastián de los Reyes, Madrid, Spain,
The Jarama Classic returns to the legendary Circuito del Jarama in Madrid, Spain 31 March – 2 April, and is set to be an event worth making the trip for.
The world-famous circuit will be the home for 3 days of fantastic racing, featuring cars ranging from 1939 Grand Prix classics, to sports cars from the 1980s.
A historic home
A whole lot of racing will take place on the Circuito del Jarama over the 3 days, but this circuit is certainly used to it.
The Jarama Circuit was once home to the Spanish Grand Prix, hosting the race 9 times from 1968 to 1981. In 1987, it hosted the Jarama 4 Hours, the second round of the first ever World Touring Car Championship for Group A cars.
With this much history, it’s no surprise that the Jarama Classic is a must see for motorsport fans, and this year’s event won’t be one to miss.
Here’s a quick look at some of the races taking place over the 3 days:
- The Trofeo Nastro Rosso - some of the finest cars of the weekend will grace the circuit during the Trofeo Nastro Rosso. The race is only for pre-1966 Italian sports cars and Grand Tourers. Need we say more?
- Trophée Legende - new for 2017, some of the oldest cars of the weekend can be seen in action. Only Sports and Grand-Prix cars from before 1939 (inclusive) are eligible for this race of legends. Qualifying is taking place on the Friday, with races taking place on both Saturday and Sunday - The races will be short, so make sure to be by the circuit in time.
- Sixties’ Endurance - as the name suggests, you can enjoy a competitive flashback to racing in the ‘60s. Every car taking part is the same model as a car which competed in a major world championship endurance race before 1966. The race closes Saturday’s action, and is the longest race of the weekend, taking place between 17:05 – 19:05.
- Other races include: 2 Classic Endurance races, a Heritage Touring Cup, Group C Racing and the Iberian Historic Endurance race. It’s going to be a busy 3 days.
