The Winter Rally Styria is a classic rally in the traditional sense, where mutual support and finishing are more important than results and rankings. Times are measured in full minutes - sometimes hours. Drivers and co-drivers take back the responsibility and team work is crucial.

85% of the route of the Winter Rally Styria is on minor roads, crossing snowy pastures and dark valleys, through dark forests and snow-capped mountain passes. A challenge for drivers and vehicles, the route covers a total altitude of about 30,000 metres and 750 km through and over the Styrian mountains.

The Winter Rally Styria deliberately foregoes the usual technical equipment; with navigators predominantly relying on maps, navigation becomes a true challenge in itself.

The Winter Rally Styria is a classic motorsport regularity rally, which takes place in extreme wintery conditions.

The Winter Rally Styria is only suitable for experienced drivers and co-drivers. It is not a conventional classic car tour or a purely sociable automotive event. But there is much to experience and discover and great friendships to forge and cement.
