The car programmes
In creating the Circuit des Ardennes, Baron de Crawhez chose this region and these roads as he knew them well : sufficiently wide, not too steep, with bends but also good straight sections.
Also these roads were relatively free of traffic.
For later editions the route was considerably modified, with the start moved to Arlon and covering different localities.
We have adopted the same principles for the Commemorations, thus offering varied itineraries and roads well suited to every type of vehicle.
In particular we are thinking of single-cylinder and bi-cylinder cars and motorcycles from the beginnings of the motorcar, which demand the organisers' special attention.
The route for 2020 will reflect these considerations.
