The Spa Six Hours 2013 was staged September 20-22 at the 4.352-mile, 20-turn Spa-Francorchamps in Belgium. A strong and competitive field competed in the 21st annual running of the historic car races held on the technical track located in the beautiful setting of the Ardennes countryside.
The headline race at the 2013 Spa Six Hours was the 360-minute historic endurance race for touring and sports cars built before 1965. With entrants like AC Cobra, Aston Martin DB4 and Project 214, Jaguar E-Type, Lotus Elite and Elan, Porsche 911 and the fearsome Ford GT40, this year’s event saw more than 100 vintage race cars battle on the the famed Spa-Francorchamps circuit. Behind the wheel were some great names, including the Swede Kenny Brack, winner of the 1999 Indy 500 M and the Flying Dutchman Jan Lammers.
The team of Leo Voyazides and Simon Hadfield won this year’s Spa Six Hours endurance race, completing 109 laps around Spa in their red Ford GT40. The duo finished ahead of the Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport of Michiel Campagne, Allard Kalff and Jan Lammers and the Ford GT40 of Shaun Lynn and Andrew Haddon. The Ford GT40 of Joe Macari, Gavin Henderson and Rory Henderson and the Lightweight Jaguar E-Type of Alasdair McCaig, Chris Clark and John Clark rounded out the top five finishers. The victory is the second recent historic win for Hadfield, as the British driver famously won the RAC Tourist Trophy race at the Goodwood Revival.
