InterClassics celebrates 75 years of Ferrari at Classic Car Show Brussels
Brussels Expo, 3 March 2022 – From Friday, 18 to Sunday, 20 November 2022, Classic Car Show Brussels will celebrate the 75th anniversary of the world’s most famous sports car manufacturer, Ferrari. In addition to this milestone, the unique relationship between Belgium and the ‘Scuderia’ will also be put in the spotlight during the seventh edition of this event. As early as 1952, the Belgian privateer organisation Ecurie Francorchamps was there at the beginning of the Le Mans and many F1 races with its distinctive yellow Ferraris. In collaboration with Autoworld Brussels, InterClassics will showcase the Italian brand’s prized specimens.
InterClassics is optimistic about the new exhibition season. After two tumultuous years fraught with COVID and restrictions, the possibilities are returning to normal. This is why the organisation is pleased to present the new theme and the poster designed in the typical InterClassics style.
Exhibition manager Erik Panis explains: “After the sixth edition of Classic Car Show Brussels and its ‘Jacky Ickx: Tribute to a Racing Legend’ theme, we have set the bar extra high for future editions. We are seizing this challenge with both hands! We expect to be able to present a very diverse exhibition, particularly with the themes 75 years of Ferrari and Ecurie Francorchamps.”
The Ferrari 250 GT SWB graces the poster of Classic Car Show Brussels and even displays the number 59 in the same style as Ecurie Francorchamps used in 1962. The car boasts an illustrious history, and after a major racing accident in 1962, the car was sold to American actor James Coburn, known from The Great Escape and many other films. Bearing chassis number 2445GT, this Ferrari has since been restored to its former glory and may be seen regularly in action on circuits such as the Le Mans Classic and Goodwood Revival.
