Hurrah! The international vintage car year bursts into life on 6th January. In the Austrian mountains pre-1972 cars tackle the wintry conditions, driving on snow and ice without modern gizmos such as ABS, 4WD and traction control.
If you’re used to seeing vintage cars in height-of-summer trim it is an amazing sight to see the old-timers in the mountains. Cars taking part are divided into three eras. A 1930s Sunbeam Supersport is the earliest competitor, driven by Johann Kofler whilst the pack includes an MGA, several Porsches, an original 1942 Jeep, Beetles and a British Leyland Mini!
