Power, performance and lots of celebrities.

The report.

2 July 2017
Breathtaking automotive designs, awesome power and plenty of celebrities in the cockpits: everyone was delighted with the first Schloss Bensberg Supersports Classics. And even the steady rain on Saturday didn’t spoil the atmosphere. After the event, drivers, guests and visitors all agreed that it was a worthy successor to the world-famous Schloss Bensberg Classics, held every year since 2009. 

Classics meet new supercars
The concept of showing brand-new, exclusive supercars alongside the large field of high-calibre classic sports cars was particularly successful. The unique combination of iconic vehicles from the past and future delivered some great images. And acoustically, the cars’ appearance was also spectacular, with the rumble and roar of engines sending shivers down the spine.

Celebrity starters: the rally
On Saturday, 1 July, around 90 classic and contemporary sports cars took part in a rally through the Bergisches Land involving numerous time trials and regularity sections. The line-up included a Ferrari F40, a Porsche 959, a rare Mercedes C111 and a DeLorean DMC-12, the cult car from Back to the Future. The future of supercar construction was represented by vehicles including an Audi R8 V10, a Bentley Continental GT Supersports and a Mercedes-AMG GT Roadster. Richy Müller, famous as a TV detective, drove a Porsche 911 GT3 with 500 h.p.

Also on the road in the idyllic landscapes surrounding Bensberg were the actor sisters Anja and Gerit Kling, skateboard legend Titus Dittmann, Hollywood star Vincent De Paul and opera singer Anna Maria Kaufmann. The rally was won by Willy and Christa Eisinger in their 1980 Porsche 911 Turbo in the electronic instruments class, with Hans-Ulrich and Dr Marie-Therese Hahn victorious in the class for mechanical instruments in an Alpine A 110 1600 S from 1969.

Classics close up: the concours
On Sunday the weather was much better, and drivers and vehicles were able to relax and enjoy the atmosphere: all the sports cars were presented as part of a concours in the courtyard of Althoff Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg and judged by a jury of experts and celebrities. This gave the many visitors a unique opportunity to admire up-close the powerful and collectible models, many of which are seldom seen otherwise.
