The title says “race” but honestly i didn’t really get what the event was about yet. The homepage lacks a lot of information and there were some showlaps in the morning and some “race” laps in the afternoon but i have no clue if it really was a race or more timed showlaps. Nevertheless we had a few fun hours at the GP Diessenhofen today.
I heard the first time about the event last year and since it’s only 40minutes drive from my place we decided to have a look. It’s a very small track through the historic city Center of Diessenhofen directly at the river Rhein and then surrounding the city bit.
At the show laps in the morning you had possibilities to get taxi-rides in the cars for 20 bucks only so this sounded like fun. We ended up checking out the exotic machinery before the showlaps, then looking at the showlaps and then heading home during lunch-time before the rain came in. The cars were divded in four groups, the first one beeing supercars of modern and older generations:
And then there was an array of cars which reminded me very much about the hillclim cars i see every year. Allthough i have to say i wasn’t really sure where the cars were usually used because some of them i was very unfamiliar with. Which didn’t mean they were less spectacular 🙂
After all it was a fun few hours to spend a sunday morning. Still i’m not really sure what the event was about but it was interresting to see some exotic and rare cars and there really was a cool mix of cars and brands 🙂
