The Classic Cars Gaisberg Races will be held in Salzburg for the 13th time. Over the three day event, more than 200 drivers from 14 nations will race exciting duels for the Grand Prix.
Originally, the Gaisberg Races were mountain races for motorbikes and cars that took place between 1929 and 1969 at the Gaisberg (mountain) by the city of Salzburg. Over the years there were a number of fatal accidents, which was one of the reasons the high-speed races came to an end.
While in the past the races in Salzburg were all about speed, other qualities are expected of the car drivers today. Since 2003, the organizers have successfully establish uniformity races, though high demands are still made of the competitors.
Once again this year, Leica is represented at the event with many events and activities. Among other things, visitors and participants can look forward to a Classic Car Portrait Shooting, a Leica Camera and Sport Optics product portfolio presentation, and the LFI Classic Car photography competition at the LFI Gallery with a surprise prize.
