Spa Francorchamps in Belgium is one of the greatest race tracks on earth. So it makes sense that when the track hosts a test and tune event, some amazing cars show up.

This event happened at the end of March 2019, right at the beginning of this year's race season. Despite the slightly damp conditions, there was no shortage of incredible track cars present. Most notable was the Bentley Speed 8 that won the 24 Hours of Le Mans in 2003. A Jaguar XJR-8, XJR-9, a Ferrari 275 GTB/C, a Ford GT40, and a handful of different Aston Martin Vantage race cars made appearances too. There's also a few GT3, GT4, and TCR cars.

The only other event we can think of that has so much variety is the Goodwood Festival of Speed, and that only happens once a year. Spa is a magical place, that's for sure.
