24H of Spa | The Race Car Parade


On wednesday afternoon, a stunning trail of GT car royalty rolled down the sweeping hills of the Ardenne countryside this afternoon. The 24 hours of Spa Race Car Parade took over 60 GT3 race cars from the famous Francorchamps circuit to Spa town, nestled 13kms away.

Running behind the official course vehicles, the cars took to the public roads in a spectacular convoy, not normally seen or heard by the locals of any circuit. The sun beamed down as the cars slowed for the crowds and parked up, pride of place in the town centre.

An autograph session by all teams took place just off ‘Rue Royale’ in the centre of town, the crowds gathered in their thousands to catch a glimpse of the men and machine who will compete in the Total 24 Hours of Spa this weekend. Signed hats, flags, posters, T-shirts and more were given out to the adoring fans who numbered over 3,500.
