Saab Event: Saab on the Sachsen Classik 2012

At the moment it is still pretty quiet about our favorite car brand. In Sweden everything is waiting for September. In Saxony, the Sachsen Classik will take place this weekend again. Like last year some SAAB are on their way again.

Car Number 141, Saab 96 Rallye
Car Number 141, Saab 96 Rallye

With the starting number 118 go D.Hesse and A.Hoffmann in the Sonnet II, which already at the Leipzig Trade Fair stood at the start. Starting place 120 have Dr.med.T.Künstle and Dr.M.Bauer in the Saab 900 Turbo and with the number 141 are Tobias Kaboth and Michael Hesse of the Mobile Forum Dresden in their new wonder weapon, a 1972 Saab 96 rally.

The start of this year's edition was at noon in Zwickau with a ride over 128km around the Sachsenring. Tomorrow we go from Zwickau on Meerane, Altenburg, Bad Lausick (almost at our doorstep over) and Grimma to Leipzig. On Saturday then the last leg from Leipzig via Bad Düben, Torgau, Hermsdorf, Leisnig and Freiberg to Dresden to the Gläserne Manufaktur. Who lives nearby or maybe this weekend in Saxony, finds here the exact procedure the Saxon Classik. For all others, our friends from Yellow Fox again equipped the vehicles of the Sachsen Classic with a tracking system. Thus, a follow-up of the action is also "Live" on the home computer possible.

We will try to take some great photos of the vehicles. Since the route does not go directly through our place, we have looked for another location. There we will be tomorrow morning and take photos of the passing Saab and possibly also of the other vehicles. Updates will follow tomorrow ... you all a good night and you Tom continue a nice holiday.

      • Hi Mark,

    • Hach, if there were not the 200, - € I would have liked to do that ...

  • Well, it's not so quiet: NEVS should not get the griffin and the naming rights ...

      • So the big unknown third? Who is that supposed to be? So, slowly, I do not believe in it, too many parallels to Rover.

        I am afraid that the Saab brand is mousetot dead and because of the spare parts assurance by the Swedish state we are lucky enough to be able to drive our youngtimer even further.

        But new cars with the griffin and under the brand Saab is after 1,5 years tamtam an illusion.

  • Unfortunately a bit far for a spontaneous visit. But I hope for some nice pictures.
