The Swiss Classic is a term used to describe the most important motorsport event in Switzerland. The Swiss Classic doesn’t refer to a single race, but to an entire series of events that take place across various parts of the country. These races are part of the national championship and they all culminate at the first race of the series. The national championship is held every year and it features different categories; some of these categories include sports cars, production sedans, touring cars and so on.
The main racing circuit in Switzerland is called Hochstrasse Circuit, which is located in Affoltern am Albis, a town close to Zurich. The Hochstrasse Circuit was built in 1958 by motor racing enthusiast Fritz Pfeiffer who wanted to create a permanent venue for motor racing events in Switzerland. This track was also known as Alberskreuz because it runs along Alber hill; hence the name “Hochstrasse” meaning “High Street” (Swiss classic). The original version of this track ran for 2.6km before being shortened by about 1km about 20 years ago after new safety measures had been introduced. Today, only one full length running sector remains from its original length.
