AvD Oldtimer GP 2019: Getting Sideways

TrackandTuner.com visited our favorite classic car event. The 2019 AvD Oldtimer GP.


What is more to love, BMW M1 procars, screaming DTM cars, million dollar classic cars, Porsche galore and more sounds and smells you can take in.


We already saw the testing days on Thursday, but officially the event starts on a Friday with the first qualification sessions. However before we go into the action, we first visited the car auction. Three cars stood out, the gorgeous bordeaux AMG GT-R, a very rare and expensive Porsche 993 TurboS convertible and one of my favorite BMW's, the Batmobile. 

Just before the start of the quali, the Nurburgring threw out some showers, making it wet and slippery.


You have to know that most of these cars don't have traction control, abs or all that modern safety equipment keeping you on track. 


Seeing a BMW M1 procar flying by sideways, shooting massive flames, it something I won't forget!


After that I went to the Dunlop curve, for some 180 degrees action. We saw our friends with the Opel Astra V8 DTM and the Mercedes AMG DTM fighting for the pole position.


But they were no match for the Ford Capri by Zakspeed. This car is unbeatable, as you can see in the video down below.


Pole Position: Ford Capri Zakspeed

Second Place: TRUST Mercedes AMG DTM 

Third Place: Opel Astra V8 DTM.


Next up, it is racing time!
