Hopping in at the sixth “Hamburg-Berlin Classic” 2013 rally for vintage and classic cars proudly organised by “Auto Bild Klassik” magazine, will be three of BMW Group Classic’s more unusual representatives from the small British car collection: a 1981 Mini Clubman Estate, a Riley Elf, first registered in 1969, and a Mini Wildgoose “Brent” Super V. E. B., one of the few surviving Mini-based campers, developed in the 1960’s.
The “Hamburg-Berlin Classic” will be held from 19 to 21 September 2013 under a name that will be familiar in vintage car circles, even though this time the rally is taking an east-west route. This is the first time that the Olympic Stadium in Berlin will be the starting point for the three classic Minis and around 180 other vehicles from almost 100 years of automotive history. Most of the route covers quiet secondary roads through Mecklenburg-Pomerania. The Fleesensee region, Müritz National Park, the state capital Schwerin, the Lauenburg lakes and the banks of the Elbe provide the backdrop for this veteran rally. During the event, the competitors will be tested in special tasks to be completed against the clock. At the closing event in the Fish Auction Hall at Hamburg Harbour the winners in all categories will be named, including the team with the most original car and the best-dressed competitors.
