Classic Grand Touring, a British company that specializes on driving tours to classic motoring events, has announced its 2016 schedule, which focuses on some of Europe’s most important vintage racing events.

The company is led by Thomas Brimblecombe, whose father, Nick, launched the Grand Touring Club and was considered a pioneer in the field of organizing classic car driving tours.

“We have planned a series of tours to sensational new locations and events as well as the old favorites,” Thomas Brimblecombe said in a news release.

As has become tradition, tours will be offered to the Monaco Historic and Le Mans Classic races as well to Retromobile, the Grand Prix de Pau Historique, the Mille Miglia and the Circuit des Remparts at Angoulême.

New tours will head to the Vernasca Silver Flag in Italy and the Chantilly Arts et Elegance Concours in France.

Participants can drive their own classic vehicles on the tours, or Classic Grand Touring can arrange classic vehicle rentals.
