He's back, and who of the readers would have recognized him? The Saab R900 Group A race car is celebrating rebirth. He makes his debut on the 2. and 3. May at the ADAC Rallye Oberberg.
Two years ago it was still under restoration. In future he will hunt down the rally track. Great story! You can read about what has happened to the R900 in the last two years on Wednesday on our Youngtimer & Classic Blog ... or experience it live in action on the weekend.
Saab meeting Bavarian Forest
During the R900 his comeback on the 2. and 3. May celebrates, the day before, further south, the Saab meeting Bavarian Forest instead. As always, it is organized by Matthias Ketterl, who tirelessly and with great spirit holds up the Saab flag in the south. On the grounds of Schnitzmühle Saab drivers from Germany, Switzerland, Austria and Slovakia meet.
Around 45 vehicles are registered, from the Saab two-stroke to the 9-5 NG sports combi - with 80 fans on board. Saab guests are welcome on May 1st from 15:30 p.m. In the evening there is a lecture by a Saab fan, the Bongo Bar is open for guests.
There is a special “Saab - Parking Zone” for all Saab visitors, the campsite has free capacities, as well as surrounding guest houses. Unfortunately, due to capacity reasons, day visitors cannot take part in the exit this year.
Because anticipation should be the greatest joy, a Saab video from last year's event and an interview with Simo Lampinen are available for viewing. The password is “saab” in each case.
