On this year’s rally, here were also two cars other than 300 SLs from the Mercedes-Benz Kompressor-Club, a Mercedes-Benz Simplex and a Mercedes SSK.
At the hearty reception on Thursday evening in the Alte Ziegelei (Old Brickyard) in Polling the excitement ran high and as many were able to meet face to face for the first time since the beginning of the Covid-19 restrictions. The next day, the column of historic vehicles moved via Oberammergau in the Bavarian Alps to the Ausserfern district of Reutte in Tyrol where we visited the Ehrenberg Castle ruins at 1,100 meters above sea level. This offered the historic vehicles a particularly magnificent backdrop which attracted a lot of attention and a number of photographs.
One or the other particularly beautiful snapshot - probably also on the part of the Austrian Federal Police, which it appeared had chosen this as the Federal Police Radar Control day. This was the comment (not literally translated) of a participant, whom we do not want to hold back from you: "The best thing about the rally was that Hans Kleissl's photographers all had their hats on ...". “However, the men with the caps (police) could not ignore the beauty of the vehicles, so they showed themselves from their generous side and kept the (radar) snapshots for themselves”.
At lake Haldensee in the Tannheimer valley a glass of wine was drunk, what has happened over the past few months was talked about and all somehow felt a that normalcy was returning. The next day there were breathtaking views from the Hahntennjoch, a mountain pass in Austria that connects the upper Inn valley with the Tyrolean Lech valley. On dozens of twisty kilometers, the participants had a very special driving experience before they came to the quaint village of Kühtai. Next day they drove back to Polling.
