Belgian Racing Victories in Touring Cars
Photo and report Willem J. Staat
For the 39th time the Antwerp Classic Salon took place at Antwerp Expo. This year the theme was Belgian Racing Victories mainly in touring cars from that great early eighties era when works teams from TWR, Ford and BMW were officially or semi officially involved in the Belgian Production Car Championship. Former Ford representative Yvette Fontaine stood in the mainlights as she won many races with Ford. And a book about her will appear later in the year. But except for Fontaine other legends like Jean Michel Martin, Eddy Joosen, etc(all Spa 24 Hrs. winners were present at the show as well. Time when tobacco advertising still was being allowed but in retro style it is still allowed as well……… Annually a small but beautiful show.
