The most modern cars competing in circuit events organised by Peter Auto can be found in this series.

It brings together machines that young spectators go wild about: GTs and prototypes from the 1990s and 2000s.

The rise of Endurance Racing Legends represents a real nod to Peter Auto, the organizer having largely contributed to the history of these cars on the circuits, both in the 1990s with the BPR (Barth-Peter-Ratel) than in the 2000s with the Le Mans Series.

The Heritage Touring Cup quickly became successful among the owners and drivers of these saloons, which provided excitement in the halcyon era of the European Touring Car Championship (ETCC) between 1966 and 1984.

The pinnacle of the season was the Spa-Francorchamps 24 Hours which became the favourite playing field of the best-known manufacturers and drivers’ majority.

The Sixties’ Endurance, for pre-63 Sports and pre-66 GTs, offers a wonderful occasion to admire all icons of the world championship at the time.

Strong endurance highlight, these two-hour races put together a wide range of cars for both the period 1950 to 1965, and the capacity.

One of Peter Auto characteristic features is, in addition to the traditional classification, a weighted classification which favours the smaller cubes and older cars in front of their powerful and younger challengers such as the AC Cobras, undoubtedly more efficient.
