Spa Six Hours
14th to 16th September 2018
Since 1994, the third edition of the Spa Six Hours, no Belgian driver was able to put his name on the list of the famous endurance race reserved for oldtimers. 24 years later, Nico Verdonck managed to defeat the Indian sign. Teammate of the German Markus Graf von Oeynhausen, the Belgian driver has imposed the Ford GT40 #30 on the sprint in front of the #7 droven at the end by Andy Newall. At the ultimate restart after a long neutralization following the crash of a Jaguar E-Type in Blanchimont, Nico Verdonck had 3 seconds to late on Andy Newall. The British would not be able to cope with the ascent of Nico Verdonck, who took orders a lap later, to impose without any discussion. At the crossing of the line, 2"4 separated the two Ford GT40's, to the advantage of the #30.

The final podium was completed by the GT40 #37 of Walker / Griffith / Shedden, while the first six places overall were taken by legendary Ford. It's the remarkable Lotus Elan 26R of Pittard / Balfe / Stirling, 7th, who was the best of the rest.
