The Modena Trackdays 2013 was held July 30-31 at famed Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. The Ferrari-focused event saw a selection of historic cars battle the always-challenging 4.352-mile, 20-turn track in the Ardennes.
Since 1993, Modena Trackdays has been held every other year on the race tracks of Nürburgring and Spa-Francorchamps, coordinated by Modena Motorsport of Germany. The combination of the Scuderia Ferrari F1 in action and the collection of historical cultural assets, enhanced by driving greats such as Jacky Ickx makes the event one to remember. Notable Ferraris at the 2013 running included modern machinery like Scuderia Ferrari F1 and 575 GTC and historical icons such as the 312 PB, 512 M, 166 MM Barchetta, 275 GTB, 250 GT SWB, N.A.R.T. 365 GTB/4 Daytona Competizione, 308 GT/M and 512 BB/LM.
Non-Ferraris were also welcomed at the 2013 Modena Trackdays, as this year’s event included interesting cars such as a Maserati MC12 GT1, McLaren M1B, Ford GT40 Mk II XGT-2, Porsche 962, Shelby Daytona Cobra Coupe, De Tomaso Pantera Group 4, Alfa Romeo 1750 GTAm and the Isdera Imperator 108i.
