Project Description

Kitzbühel & Alpine Region | Issue 07 | Spring 2018

The Kitzbüheler Alpenrallye is one of Austria’s leading classic car events. Vintage vehicles from six decades of motoring history will set out on a grand tour for the 31st time from 6th to 9th June 2018 – with new routes in the Alpenrallye route schedule.

Premiere Gasteinertal

A number of new routes that traverse the most famous Alpine mountains in Tyrol and Salzburg are on the programme: Wilder Kaiser, Loferer Steinberge, Hochkönig and Hohe Tauern present the rally teams with impressive views of the breathtaking mountain scenery.

Around 600 kilometres must be surmounted in total – in either sporty (Sport Trophy) or leisurely (Classic Trophy) style. The fact that only cars built pre-1972 may participate ensures an exclusive starter field, with a cross-section of the most beautiful pre and post war classics, including rare examples of major brands such as Bentley, Bugatti, Lamborghini, Porsche, Ferrari, Jaguar, Mercedes-Benz or Aston Martin.

Strong sponsors

Bentley Motors celebrated their return to the Kitzbüheler Alpenrallye 2017 as prime sponsor of this traditional event. So a particularly high-calibre appearance of the British cult-classics can be expected again in 2018. The Schaeffler group of companies and Swiss watch brand, Chronoswiss, have been principal sponsors of the event for many years – and the rallye winner will once again walk away with an exclusive model from the portfolio of this high-class watchmaker. Classic car insurance specialists, OCC, are also on board as sponsors.

New partners…

…the Alpenrallye is also supported by French auction house, Artcurial, and renowned German law firm, Buse-Heberer-Fromm. Last but not least: Kitzbühel Tourismus has also been a patron of the Kitzbüheler Alpenrallye since its very inception in 1988. As always, teams representing the Alpenrallye sponsors will join the rally field of participants.
