As I noted in a recent post, in this year’s Baden Classic rally Harald von Langsdorff and I were part of a three car team that won first place in the Overall team category. In that brief post I did not mention the other team members that contributed to our combined victory. The other team members were the teams of Anton & Rosemarie Singler and the team of Wolfgang Stracke & Fabian Mohr.
Anton & Rosemarie are regular competitors in the Baden Classic and usually have finished near the top of the class. They drive a light green Renault R8 that wore number 37 in this year’s event. The Renault R8 is a car with successful rally history.

These rear engine cars handle well and have disc brakes on all wheels.

Our other teammate was the Mercedes-Benz 450SLC of Wolfgand Stracke/Fabian Mohr. These fellows won the Sporting Class in 2014 as evidenced by being designated as Car #1 for this year’s Baden Classic.

I particularly like the look of this car as it has an overall look that looks very appropriate for a dedicated Mercedes-Benz rally car.
The Wolfgang Stacke/Fabian Mohr Mercedes-Benz Looks Great!
Many thanks to these teammates for letting us be part of the team and congratulations on having great finishes!
