The thrill of the racetrack can be experienced at the Mercedes-Benz Classic Trackdays. Moreover, professional guidance is included: this is what the name of the former DTM Vice Champion Jörg van Ommen, who organises and implements the Trackdays, stands for. He is supported at the individual racetracks by other former Mercedes-Benz factory drivers.
There are three dates planned for this year: March 30 in Hockenheim (with Kurt Thiim), August 3 in Zolder, Belgium (with Roland Asch), and September 19 in Oschersleben (with Ellen Lohr). The number of vehicles able to participate is limited to 45 in each case. There are also plans for the racing touring car 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II (W 201) used by Mercedes-Benz Classic in motorsport of yesteryear to be at the Trackdays. The car is constructed as an authentic copy of the Group A racing cars of the early 1990s. The 190 E 2.5-16 Evolution II is one of the most famous and successful racing touring cars in DTM history.
The Mercedes-Benz Classic Trackdays offer several programmes: open pitlane (all-day free driving), tracktime (bookable time slots) and club challenge (tube/light barrier driving with the participants’ own classic vehicles).
