TOPIC: CRAA 2016 (Classic Race Aarhus) car show

CRAA 2016 (Classic Race Aarhus) car show 5 years, 7 months ago #1

Platinum Boarder
Some may remember me talking about this huge car show in previous years. Well this year's event took place on may 27th to 29th and once again I was there for all 3 days.


This year's event consisted of regular races in the following classes:


'65 touring cars


'71 touring cars


'76-'81 touring cars


Youngtimer


Legend cars


International Historic Formula


International Youngtimer Challenge


Kampf der Zwerge (small cars like Mini, Lada, NSU TT, Fiat Abarth etc.)


Mascot DTC (Danish Thunder Cars = modern NASCAR types)


 


Also exhibition 'races' by classic Formula 1 cars


 


The cars race on a street circuit and audiences can walk freely in the paddocks without restrictions. Drivers come from all over the world - yes, there was even an Australian this year!


But perhaps the best part of it all is the classic car parks: a chance to view (and take photos of) some really interesting old cars, some of them extremely rare. This year I made sure not to miss ANYTHING at all in the classic car parks, taking photos of every single car. Using the various motor registry sites, I've since looked up each vehicle for details of registration dates, specific car types etc.


Instead of just posting a ton of random photos, I'll make use of the lists and post them here. If you want to see a car from the list, post a comment and I'll put it up.


I also have 1000's of photos from the races and paddocks, of course

That is quite a list Thomas.
You did take phoos of them all I suppose?
I would love to see the Wartburg and he VW GTI mk1 from 1979

Re: CRAA 2016 (Classic Race Aarhus) car show 5 years, 7 months ago #6

Yes, and this is only a fraction... but not done with the rest yet.


I did take photos of them all, but a few had their fronts up against fences so could only get them from the rear.


Oh, and I forgot to mention the perhaps the most interesting part of them all: there was a big car auction, held by UK-based Silverstone Auctions over two days. I bought the catalog and took photos of all the cars. The auction attracted buyers from all over the world. Some REALLY spectacular ones among them... including a 1973 Beetle, 100% original including motor oil and tires, only driven 90 km since new!


The Wartburg was a real surprise, we used to have quite a few of them in Denmark in the late 70s and 80s, but a 1968-model, that surprised me.

So much space for so little money, that Wartburg is a very funny car. Good to see that they are still around.
The VW reminds me of my first car.
Thanks

The Wartburg as scale model from Ixo/IST (#IST038)


The design was 'modernized' every now and then, but in very tiny steps. Even the much later version 353 W (where the 'w' stood for 'Weiterentwicklung') basically looked the same, just with a different grille. The Ixo/IST model is the 1972 version.

I remember working with someone in the 80s who had a pale blue Wartburg and the smoke as it drove up the road ( also the reason that they stopped importing them into the UK the 2 stroke engine ).

It is a large venue with over a 100 cars? That is great. I bet you have a lot of filing to do with all your photographs.
Do you use the numberplate as a file number or do you have the make and model as the number?

I'm keeping an MS Access database with all the sightings. This includes license plates, car model, first date of registration, VIN, date and location spotted and previous history (license plates, import)


Normally the records are sorted by car models in the database.



Yes, there are way over 100 cars - the main classic car park alone holds appr. 220-230 cars, I think, with a 60% or more difference between saturday and sunday. The other location, Mindeparken (a park at the 'inner circle' of the circuit) holds... hmmm, I'd say 125-175 cars. Then there's the Silverstone auction site with over 100 cars as well and finally, of course, there are all the race cars, old and new. Even with 3 days I always find myself running our of time... may have something to do with also trying to watch the races, of course.


To me the real stars are not the supercars, but the old street cars that I grew up with like Renault 16, Vauxhall Viva & Victor, Opel Rekord, Ford Taunus, NSU Prinz, Triumph Herald and so on. Cars that used to be everywhere, but now are so rare that some of them I haven't seen for decades. It brings back so many memories to suddenly see them again and I treasure those photos very much.

The forum-engine just cropped out the part of my previous message where I tried to explain my file-naming format for the photos, but basically they have the car-name first, followed by year, registration number, location and date.

Thanks Thomas,
I am the process of setting up a system myself. I am familiar with Excel, so that is the best way for me I think

Yeah, I use Excel for diecasts, Access for 1:1 scale. Excel allows color-coding of individual cells and getting sums of cells simply by selecting them. This gives quite a lot of useful functions like: being able to quickly spot the cheapest and most expensive purchases/best profits on sales, money spent in any selected period or total/money earned from sales etc.
