The AvD Oldtimer GP is one of the biggest historical racing events in Germany. For me it´s like a Festival of Speed here in Germany. At this event you can see such racers like historical Grand Prix cars, GTs, Touring cars, Prototypes, cars of the golden DRM (Deutsche Rennsport Meisterschaft), DTM, STW and much more. Just being around these amazing cars makes you feel like you've been thrown into the past.

I love this event because you can walk through the pits and talk to the drivers. Here's the Hesketh 308E from 1975.
