Driving your classic car in winter?

You must not forget that back when your vehicle was not yet a classic car, it would obviously be driven in snow and ice…and back then, the winters used to be very harsh! What is more, the amount of classic road salt used today is ever decreasing. Besides, an information sheet about the protective measures to be taken for the vehicles in winter will be sent to the participants in good time before the start of the WinterRAID.


WinterRAID team standings: triple pleasure!

Embark upon this wintry challenge together with your friends, acquaintances or business partners. Three cars can form a team with a proper team name. The team with the least penalty points out of all teams registered will win.

WinterRAID Ladies‘ Cup
As is the case with all RAIDs, ladies' teams will receive a special award: The winners of the WinterRAID will be awarded the Ladies' Cup. In 19 years, 39 ladies' teams have mastered this rally with flying colours.
