ZENITH @ Official Timekeeper on The most Beautiful of Circuits


An undulating circuit scored through the heart of the Ardennes massif. Bends where every name calls to mind a hard-won battle. Steeped in history, a path to glory, a saga of epic victories. And then there's the weather, unpredictable and volatile. On the 16th, 17th and 18th of May, Zenith was the official timekeeper of the Spa Classic. Over the course of its first three years, the Spa Classic has become a complete event where motor sports, a love of classic vehicles and entertainment combine in a friendly atmosphere to create an exceptional occasion. Voted by drivers as one of the most beautiful circuits in the world, Spa-Francorchamps offers an undulating route scored through the heart of the Ardennes massif. Set at the crossroads of four countries (Germany, France, Luxembourg and the Netherlands), the Spa Classic is attracting a growing number of spectators from across Europe. This 4th annual event will be a huge festival of classic vehicles with eight grids of vintage cars in competition: Classic Endurance Racing 1 & 2, Sixties’ Endurance, Trofeo Nastro Rosso, Group C, Historic Formula 2 and two grids of touring cars – Heritage Touring Cup and Historic Motor Racing News U2TC, which get to enjoy a night race on Saturday evening, reviving the classic era of the Spa 24 Hours.


Amongst the weekend's unmissable events is an auction held by the world-famous auction house, Bonhams, an exhibition featuring a huge number of club cars assembled for this occasion … not to mention the Exhibitor's Village which brings together the best of Automobilia, artists and other booksellers. Something to delight every kind of enthusiast, across the generations.
