Europe's most renowned classic car event is expanding and taking place from 6. to 10. October 2021 in Bruges, Ostend and Knokke-Heist. What began in 2010 as a classic car rally among friends who shared a love for beautiful historic cars has now developed into one of the most renowned classic car events in Europe. After last year's “Behind Closed Doors” edition, the organization is returning to the successful public format and shifting up a gear with a new program and two additional cities, Bruges and Ostend. It promises to be a well-filled and, above all, varied program that will also appeal to non-car enthusiasts, with a lot of attention to art and the finer things in life. Make a note of the dates for the ZOUTE GRAND PRIX CAR WEEK® 2021 (zoutegrandprix.be): from Wednesday 6th to Sunday 10th October.

In this “golden triangle”, from Wednesday 6th to Sunday 10th October, various events will be organized in the most imaginative places open to the public. From this year onwards, attention will not only be given to “art on wheels”. Other forms of art will also play a prominent role at the event, with top works by artists from Belgium and beyond.

This is also the starting point for the walk for BRUGES CONCOURS D'ELEGANCE®, a competition based on unique historical carriages that will stand in the most beautiful squares and parks of Bruges. Each car is unique and, like the buildings around it, has a unique story. The highlight of the week is certainly the passage of the ZOUTE RALLY® by stow, which will take place in Bruges on Friday, October 8th between 11am and 14pm.
