- Revival of the Austrian mountain race from the 1930s
- Mercedes-Benz SSK and W 125 at the start
- 92 bends, 14 hairpins, 15 kilometres and a 1300-metre altitude difference
As a classic car event, the 2012 Grossglockner Grand Prix on this unique High Alpine Road is a homage to the legendary “Mountain Grand Prix” races held there in the 1930s. 92 bends, 14 hairpins, almost 15 kilometres and an altitude difference of almost 1300 metres present a challenge for man and machine now as they did then.
As in the original race, the route is from Ferleiten to Fuscher Törl (Austria).
