It’s only a month ago, that the last historical race car drove over the finish line at Bellahøj Park at Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix and completed two days of classic motor festival in Copenhagen.
It was the 16th time CHGP was held in Copenhagen and fourth year Bellahoj Park hosted the special cultural event where historic motorsport is at the center as a moving testimony of the past several decades fascinating car evolution.
Over the 2-day weekend a total of five historic racing series, along with several show classes and the modern DTC-series, visited the area around the former Animal Show ground which was converted into large display areas and family-friendly entertainment programs.
Along with more than 225 race drivers from the participating classes, the largest profiles from home and abroad visited this year’s event. CHGP Ambassador Tom Kristensen had world star André Lotterer as a guest at the race in Copenhagen. The two Audi-stars had the company of the Danish Le Mans-pilot Jan Magnussen, Michael Christensen, Marco Sørensen, Christoffer Nygaard and Nicki Thiim. And throughout the weekend there were high spirits and enthusiastic driving to the delight of guests and spectators.
Also the many exhibitors and partners, who were involved in helping to turn this year’s edition of CHGP into an audience success, are excited about the event. In fact, the satisfaction is so great, that the first exhibition -and sponsorship contracts for next year’s Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix have already been signed.
The continued growing interest in involvement in CHGP excites the organization and shows that efforts to provide a full and interesting racing weekend have worked. The enormous support from all fronts is uplifting, and the whole team behind CHGP is already looking forward to elevate the event further in 2017.
