The flagship race is definitely the one that gave its name to the event, Spa Six Hours Endurance. The race starts Saturday 1st October between 15.55hrs and finishes at 21.55hrs. Traditionally the race has a crowded startgrid. and that’s the least you can say about this year’s entry-list.  The last few years, the Ford GT40 dominated the race. And with the 19 Ford GT40s in the race, we don’t see any reason why that would be different this year.
