Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix is a vintage motor sports car race held annually on the grounds of Fælledparken in Copenhagen, Denmark. It has been arranged since 2001 and takes place in the first weekend of August. HRH Prince Joachim of Denmark is a regular participator along with numerous Danish and International professional racing drivers.

Cars compete separately in various classes, including a large number of vehicles in the pre-WW II class. Around 200 vintage cars participate, such as Bentley's from the 20s, Bugatti's from the 30s, Jaguar's and Porsche's from the 50s and Lotus Cortina's, Alfa Romeo's and Jaguar E's from the 60s.

The Royal Pro-Am Class is the class where Prince Joachim and other amateurs share their cars with professional drivers. In 2008, 25 Le Mans drivers attended the race, including the eight time Le Mans winner Tom Kristensen.[1]

Apart from the multiple races, various other demonstrations, presentations and car shows take place as well as the marking of historic car models.
