FIA - 30th Historic Grand Prix

19-20 june 2004

Claus Larsen co-drove one of the transporters of the danish team Lindberg Eyewear to the Belgian Zolder circuit near Brussels.

Two DeTomaso Panteras, three Lotus Elans and a Renault-Alpine was entered for the 30th FIA Historic European Grand Prix, and the Panteras even managed to qualify 2nd and 3rd, but had to stand down when it was concidered too dangerous to race in the wet with slicks.
