Dear classic car friends,


We are celebrating and experiencing a very special event this year: The 5th Int. ADAC Zurich Westfalen Klassik is also the FIVA World Event 2021 for automobiles. This title is awarded every year to an event within the FIVA World Classic Car Association, which is also particularly attractive for an international group of participants. 

In recent years, the ADAC Westfalen has presented a classic car rally with competence and great commitment, which is now firmly on the calendar among aficionados. And it is not just the rally itself. Everything around it with very special evening events is also part of it. At the Concours d‘Élégance with a morning pint on Sunday in the newly designed Bad Sassendorf spa gardens, participating teams and the spectators alike can experience the fascination of vintage cars. 

But the main thing, as always, is driving with the automotive treasures. The Sauerland offers the perfect stage for this with streets to enjoy, modeled into the landscape, away from everyday traffic. Just right for a journey where the journey is the reward. These routes are the highlight for me. 

I am therefore very pleased that this year we can also present the ADAC Zurich Westfalen Klassik to our international guests. And I would not be surprised to see some of them again in the years to come! 

For the enjoyment of driving, I wish all teams accident-free kilometers. If your treasures need a little attention en route, do not worry: the ADAC breakdown service will be there. And even if you “only” watch: Enjoy looking back at a time when a car was not yet a matter of course. Enjoy your personal memories.
