Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix is the flagship of Danish Motorsports. The race takes place in Bellahøj, Copenhagen each year during the first weekend of August. CHGP is action, drama, speed and entertainment for the entire family as we celebrate historic race cars and famous race drivers – both Danish icons and international stars.

CHGP is also a cultural story about the development of the race car from the childhood of motorsports to innovative, electric and hybrid cars.

Besides the race, there are lots of activities in the Inner Circle – Company events, exhibitions, motoring clubs, accessory stalls, restaurants, a book store, food and beverage stalls and a playground.

CHGP is proud to have HRH Prince Joachim as patron and Tom Kristensen as ambassadors.

Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix is for the whole family – children are invited free of charge.

Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix takes place at Bellahøj in Copenhagen during the first weekend of August – 5th and 6th 2017 – and it will be a real family event. There is a myriad of events for both old, young – and the very youngest.

CHGP invites all children under the age of 14 to watch the Grand Prix free of charge when accompanied by a paying adult.

In 2013 we established the family area inside the Inner Circle with activities and fun for all members of the family. Enjoy the market stalls filled with everything a heart could possibly desire of motorsport souvenirs. Try out the many kids’ activities or participate in exciting competitions. There is a café area on the lawn and in addition you will find two lunch restaurants. Furthermore, there are great food and beverage stalls throughout the park, so everyone can have a good day at CHGP.

Living people and “live” vehicles

Experience from previous years has shown that Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix is a real family event. The Grand Prix is an excellent opportunity for parents to give their children an insight into what the cars looked like, when Mom and Dad were young. Unlike museums, CHGP offers the perfect atmosphere of action with live people and “live” cars.

At CHGP you will not only see the exciting classic cars racing the 2,6 km racetrack at Bellahøj. It is also a tradition that legendary race drivers shake off the dust and let themselves loose behind the wheels of race cars from when they, and the car, were still quite young – it is simply pure nostalgia!

Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix is Europe’s most beautiful street race. The extraordinary event attracts a wide range of audiences from all around the World. This charming historic race is arranged annually in cooperation with Historical Motor Sport. Next event will be on August 5th and 6th 2017 at Bellahøj in Copenhagen.
