6th Autumn Rally of Vintage Vehicles

Oct. 8, 2019

On 4-6 October this year, the Commission of Vintage Vehicles of Wielkopolska Automobile Club organized the 6th Autumn Rally of Vintage Vehicles. Talex S.A. is one of the sponsors of this interesting event. In this year the starting point was in "Villa Natura" Centre located in Dolsk, near Śrem, and over 100 km long rally route involved, among others, the old bowling alley in Śrem, a palace in Brodnica, and admiring the views from the observation tower near Mosina. Amongst vehicles at the start of the rally were, amongst others, 1929 Plymouth U and 1935 Aero 30 cars. As usual, there were numerous owners of historic Mercedes-Benz cars, but also BMW, Volkswagen, Porsche, Citroen and Skoda cars. The audience was particularly attracted by the great American Chevrolet Impala and the historic Rolls Royce Silver Shadow (both vehicles dated 1958), as well as the chrome-plated 1980 Chevrolet Corvette. The familiar silhouettes of the Warszawa, Trabant and Polish Fiat 126p, as well as Nysa's car as an ambulance, looked nice. There were numerous attractions on the route for the participants of the rally: tests of driving efficiency, navigation tasks, questions concerning heritage tourism, as well as the history of motorization. The culminating point of the rally was a car show and an elegance contest organized at the market in Śrem, in which the awards were founded by the Mayor of Śrem. The sunny autumn weather proved fine to end the season in a good style.
