Whenever possible, i try to go to the local Hillclimb race of Oberhallau. This year, i thought about skipping it, because it can get a bit repetitive. But then i learnt it will be extended to 3 days because of their 100 Years anniversary edition with lots of historic specials planned.
After the track was fixed, fences got repaired, driver got a health-check and the car was transported away, the fun continued.
I like how you find a cool mix of cars at these events. from the legendary Opel (Vauxhall) kaddett C, 16V
After the lunch brake, heavy rain started to pour down, so we decided to go to the lunch tent. Because of the anniversary, they had a nice display of legendary race cars, which competed and won the races in the past. And all of them were also driven on show-laps between the races. Many cars were displayed with historic photos, and were mostly driven by the original race drivers and constructors from back in the day. The first one being a Corolla AE86, definitely made my day:
After we got ourself some lunch and the rain got a bit easier, we went to the startline to check out the lack of tracktion on most of the cars, despite quickly switching to rain tires during the brake. unfortunately due to an car going off-piste again, the race was again stopped.
in the early afternoon the race got halted again and we were completely soaked in rain, so we decieded to leave early again. nevertheless, we’ve seen all cars racing once, we saw most of the cars close-up in the paddocks and had a lot of fun. The historic cars, motorcycles and exhibition was a nice touch of freshness to the day and we had loads of fun and interesting things to see..
