About 120 teams attended to the this years Karawanken Classic in Velden. Start was on Thursday with Prolog and the very nice city Grand Prix of Ferlach. Friday and Dsaturday sadly we had most of the time rain and even heavy snowfall on higher levels. The Rally was close to be abandonned due to the extreme weather conditions as some routes could not be passed for some time – we talk end of May! The perfect organisation of Gerd Figura, Harald Pirtscher and Harald Neger always had everything under perfect control. The rally was perfect, both from a sportive point of view with ambitious timing special stages as well as through the warm welcome, especially with local communities included.
The scond run for the Jaguar Classic Cup won Hannes & Gitti Frech on E-Type S1,5 FHC, follwed by Stefan & Christine Gerlach on Mk II 3.8 and Herbert & Claudia Papousek on E-Type S1 OTS.
