Silvretta Classic Rallye Montafon
New & vintage cars in a fantastic natural setting
03. - 06. July 2014
Since 1998, a unique “rolling automobile museum” has presented itself every year in the Montafon. It is now impossible to image the annual calendar of the most important vintage car dates without the Silvretta Classic Rally Montafon. Year after year, more than twice as many starters submit their applications to participate to the expert jury of the periodicals MotorKlassic and auto motor und sport; approx. 160 very special rarities are sent on the journey each year.
The idyllic roads of the Montafon and Vorarlberg provide the backdrop for a competition that is not about top speed, but about maximum precision. That’s why the oldest vehicles in the field – whether a Bentley or Duesenberg, mostly from the 1920s – have the same chance as the younger vehicles built up to model year 1992.
Between these extremes, the most beautiful periods of automotive history are represented: The luxury cabriolets of the 1930s, preferred motors of the film and sports stars of the time are also there, as are the legendary sports cars of the period between 1950 and 1970. There are now also everyday cars, which evoke nostalgic memories in some of the many onlookers of their own childhood, perhaps of the first crossing of the Alps in the proudly driven family car. All these rolling rarities put themselves up for the competition, about which auto motor und sport writes: “The Silvretta is something for petrol heads. If you like winding roads, this is the place for you. It has everything: sometimes tight in first gear, sometimes fast in fourth. Sometimes steeply uphill, sometimes rapidly downhill. Man and machine are pushed to the limits here.”
All this can be marvelled at and admired once back on the best panoramic roads – in the Montafon and Walsertal, in the Bregenz Forest and between the Arlberg region, Pitztal and the legendary Silvretta. Even the pioneers of the early years of automotive construction put their latest creations of the time to the endurance test on the routes across the Alps. Those who conquered the highest passes would also prove themselves in everyday life.
That is exactly why the pioneers of modern mobility also line up against the competition: people are also invited to take part in the Silvretta E-Car Rally as part of the Silvretta Classic Rally Montafon. Already established vehicles with an alternative drive cover the route as do the latest prototypes, in some cases long before the market launch in a unique test.
The fascinating brands from the grand eras of automotive history in front of the unique backdrop of the Montafon with its hospitable towns invite you to come and enjoy.
