The racing season now officially kicks off with the 76th Members Meeting at the Goodwood Motor Circuit on March 17-18. Headlined by the previously announced David Coulthard in the Salvadori Cup with the all-new IWC Racing Team, some of the most recognisable names from across the world will be in action, including Goodwood House Captains Jochen Mass, Nicolas Minassian, Emanuele Pirro and Anthony Reid.

The Tour Auto Optic 2000 will follow between 23rd and 28th April in France. Organised by Peter Auto, the 27th staging will bring together more than 230 classic racing cars for five days of discovery along French secondary roads punctuated by races on circuits and timed stages on closed roads.

Italy has more than its share of great regularity rallies and the Gran Premio Terre di Canossa takes place from April19-22 in some of the most attractive parts of the country’s north-west. And there is a fantastic culinary agenda to match.

The Monaco Historique Grand Prix from May 11-13 is another highlight this year and you can add Ayrton senna’s famous McLaren-Ford MP4/8A to your collection , when you place the highest bid at the Bonhams sale „Les Grandes Marques a Monaco“ on Friday 11.

So the season is getting now in full swing and we want to show you some of the best racing cars from our partners and dealerships to get ready for the races.

Gentleman, Start Your Engines!
