The countdown for the29th Ennstal-Classic is on!

After a year of involuntary pause, event life in the region Schladming / Dachstein region starts into the post-COVID era with a true festival of delights from the world of vintage cars: The Ennstal Classic 2021 takes place from July 21st to 24th and offers an abundance of joy and emotion that can be hardly anywhere nowadays – driving in the last paradise!

24.07.2021, Gröbming, Steiermark, Österreich (Austria): 29. Ennstal-Classic, Bergwertung Stoderzinken. Im Bild Otto Schwarz und Stephan Schwarz (CH/GBR), MG TF 1300, Bj. 1954, 58 PS.

For almost 30 years, the Ennstal Classic has been considered a dazzling summer event far beyond the scene of classic car fans. It celebrates the automobile as a cultural asset and that without a guilty conscience: namely as the first and only climate-neutral classic car rally in Austria.

The field of participants of this year’s Ennstal-Classic is very presentable as well: 227 teams from 20 nations compete on 42 different car brands and next to the center of the rallye Gröbming, the spotlight will also be on the leg villages.

The world-famous and picturesque pilgrimage site of Mariazell is also on the route of the Ennstal Classic 2021, as is traditionally the Autostadt Steyr, the imperial city Bad Ischl and the World Cup location Schladming. The Friday entrance to Liezen’s main square (from 4:45 pm) will be a treat for Formula 1 fans when ORF presenter Ernst Hausleitner turns the Ennstal-Classic into a one-two-pass game for local motorsport micro-men: Servus TV Formula 1 specialist Andreas Gröbl has been the moderator of the Ennstal-Classic in Gröbming for years.

The main protagonists of the Ennstal-Classic are and will of course remain the various historical vehicles, divided as always into four epochs from 1918 (!) To 1972. Porsche will again be the main partner of the event and brings – next to high class vehicles from the museum also high class pilotes to the rallye, for example: Mark Webber, Timo Bernhard, or Porsche Motorsport Director Fritz Enzinger. Rudi Lins will drive the Porsche 907 KH at the legendary Porsche Design Grand Prix through the town of Gröbming. As a celebrity outside of the motor world, actor Richy Müller, known as the Stuttgart crime scene inspector Thorsten Lannert, will also drive a Porsche. Almost an inventory of the Ennstal starting field are protagonists such as the racing drivers Rauno Aaltonen and Jo Ramirez.

So that the Planai-Classic from January 6th – 8th 2022 can take place without restrictions, we ask ALL SPECTATORS OF THE EVENT TO FOLLOW THE WELL-KNOWN COVID RULES! As is customary for all events throughout Austria in 2021, the certification will be checked.
