In 2015, Eddy Merckx and Jacky Ickx both celebrate their 70th birthday, as well as their long friendship. So it’s high time for the first major exhibition about this pair of Belgian sporting legends.

Authentic race cars that made ‘Mister Le Mans’ great, original racing bikes on which ‘The Cannibal’ broke the One Hour world record or won the climb to the Col du Tourmalet, never-before-seen photos and films, and highlights and memorabilia from national and international collections, are all brought together for the first time at the Heysel in Brussels in a dazzling display covering no less than 2000 square metres. Eddy Merckx and Jacky Ickx have also given us some of their personal souvenirs to put on show. Add to this the interactive exhibition route  and you have a complete and fascinating picture of what made these two extraordinary sporting heroes great.
