The Ennstal-Classic stands for emotion, passion and Motor Sports like years ago: adventurous and challenging. More than 200 cars from 1922 to 1972, started with the motto „driving in the last paradise“ trough the famous Ennstal and the entire region Schladming–Dachstein. The top car of this event was a Ferrari 250 GTO from 1962.
Sir Stirling Moss and Richard Frankel have participated with a Jaguar C-Type at the parallel competition the Chopard-Racecar-Trophy which is for Racing Cars, Prototypes and GT or Rallye-Cars up to 1982 – for example a Lindner Low-Drag Lightweight E-Type and many other great cars enthused the spectators.
The third time our club together with Jaguar Austria sponsored the Jaguar Trophy for the best classified Jaguar team. The rally started with a hill climb to the Stoderzinken to hit a target time. In the evening after about 400 km on day one ended with four Jaguar teams classified under the top ten. Day two with the 450 km Marathon and after day three with the CHOPARD Grand Prix at the end the team Helmut Schramke and Peter Umfahrer driving Jaguar XK 150 DHC won again the Jaguar Trophy – Congratulations!
As the cars being the real stars of this event there also have been many race stars form previous and current years participating the rally event: Sir Stirling Moss, Hans Joachim Stuck, Jacky Ickx, Peter Sauber and Mauro Forghieri besides many others.
