Hockenheim Classics // Classic event with full starting grids

  • Nostalgia and motorsport history from 10 to 12 September 2021 at the Motodrom
  • Around 700 participants registered
  • Tickets in advance or at the box office, 3G rule applies

It’s going to be a great late summer for friends of historic racing motorbikes and carriages as well as classic cars: from 10 to 12 September 2021, the Hockenheim Classics will start at the Motodrom. This event has been bringing nostalgia and motorsport history to the Hockenheimring for 44 years and this year, with its full starting fields, it again impressively proves that it has lost none of its popularity in the classic scene after more than four decades. Around 700 participants offer historic motor sport at a high international level. For this, the Veteran Vehicle Association will be waiting with a select spectrum of two- and four-wheeled oldies.

The DHM, German Historic Motorcycle Championship, brings a wide variety of motorbike teams and rare prototypes to the Baden racetrack. It has the largest number of participants and, next to the IDM, is the highest motorbike sport competition in Germany. Machines built between 1920 and 1993 will compete in 18 solo classes and five team classes.

Also taking part in Hockenheim are the FHRM, Freunde Historischer Rennmotorräder, from Switzerland. They will be competing for the Vintage Swiss Championship and will be entering machines and sidecars built up to 1984.

The IHRO, International Historic Racing Organisation, whose machines reflect the starting fields of the late 1960s and early 1970s, will also be competing again.

The races of the IG King Class represent a special highlight. Since the end of the 500cc class in the German Championship in 1999, the IG Königsklasse has offered these special machines and their riders a platform. In the meantime, the series has been expanded to include the 125 cc and 250 cc displacement classes.

In the field of classic cars, the VFV-GLPpro starts. Within the Veteran Vehicle Association, this racing series specialises in regularity races on the circuit. The cars range from formula racers to touring cars and GT vehicles to sports prototypes – accordingly, cars older than 25 years are permitted.

Tickets start at 8 Euros for a Friday ticket, day tickets for Saturday and Sunday cost 15 Euros each. If you want to experience the entire weekend up close, you can pay 25 euros. Admission is free for children under 14. Tickets are available via the online ticket shop, on the hotline +49(0)6205 950-222 or at the box office. Admission is subject to the 3G (vaccinated-recovered-tested) rule. There will be a small testing station (main stand, staircase B) where visitors can take a Corona quick test for 8 Euros.
