Third edition of the "Grand Prix de Bettembourg" for classic cars
Bettembourg. For years, more and more people in Luxembourg have been enthusiastic about classic cars. On Saturday, 26 June, they will get their money's worth once again in Bettembourg. Then the third edition of the "Grand Prix de Bettembourg" for classic cars, youngtimers and sports cars will take place there. Last year, the GP was moved to autumn because of the Corona pandemic.
The Grand Prix is organised by the Lions Club Luxembourg-Amitié and the Sporting Club Bettembourg. The organisers expect about 100 cars and their owners again this year. Vehicles from three classes are admitted: in addition to sports cars, classic cars (at least 30 years old) and youngtimers (at least 20 years old). Rarities from several decades of automobile history will also be on display.
The participants in the Grand Prix will enter at the Place de l'Eglise from 1.30 pm. One hour later, they will go to the start of a rally through the south of the Grand Duchy, covering some 75 kilometres. The first cars will return to the starting point at around 5.30 pm. There, the cars can be viewed until the final prize-giving ceremony to the best drivers. Owners of classic cars, youngtimers and sports cars can still register to take part. The registration fee is 60 euros. As with the first editions of the event, the registration fees will be donated to charity. Last year, around 3,000 kilos of food for the Banque Alimentaire Luxembourg were financed in this way.
