EVENT: The “Rendevouz am kleinen Klausen” classic car hillclimb & Rallye

I usually don’t promote other stuff, but i thought this one is rather special and deserves a bit of promotion: On the weekend of the 9. / 10. October a cool event is held close to my home. The “Kleiner Klausen” Hillclimb and rallye.

It is a revival of a historic hillclimb event that used to happen on this road in Opfertshofen. Named “kleiner Klausen” (Small Klausen) after the famous Klausenpass in the mountains, because it had so many similar windings.
It used to be a pretty spectacular race with around 4’000 visitors at it’s peak times and a drivers favourite in the race calendar. Since many years, this is the first time it comes back to life.
It includes both a Classic car, Classic Motorbike and Classic Cycle race, as it used to be back in the days.

For the revival they also included a nice side-program for the drivers (a rallye including food and stuff starting at the Rheinfall via the Bodensee Area, to the place where the race happens the next day), as well as a lot of interesting action and entertainment on the day.
