"Driving in the last Paradies"
The Ennstal-Classic is a three-day-event with starting point in Gröbming in the Austrian province of Styria. Gröbming, situated within a beautiful mountain landscape becomes the center of the oldtimer-scene for three days. The smell of hey and hot engines is in the air. The only thing that counts is pure driving without electronic devices.
The Ennstal-Classic is driven on asphaltic roads only. Approximately 450 km have to be completed on each of the two driving days. The Ennstal-Classic is a sporty competition that keeps the excitement in the cockpits high during the regularity tests that are up to 20 km long. The average speed of 40 km/h for the epochs I and II as well as the 50 km/h average for the epochs III and IV are monitored in secret checkpoints from where a signal is sent to the encoded transponder of each car. Also regularity tests with light barries have to be driven. Every hundredth difference from the target time is measured with one penalty point. The fewer points you get the better. Only mechanical time- and distance measuring devices are allowed. On the last day the Zenith Grand-Prix takes place with thousand of fans in the centre of Gröbming.
