200 motorists takes part in Ennstal-Classic race in Austria
The three-day event is billed by organisers as providing a motoring experience "like 50 years ago".
More than 200 motorists driving a variety of classic cars have taken to the mountain roads of Styria, southern Austria, for the annual Ennstal-Classic race, cheered on by tens of thousands of spectators.
The three-day event is billed by organisers as providing a motoring experience "like 50 years ago". Only cars built before 1972 can take part and no electronic devices are allowed, only mechanical ones to measure speed and distance.
"It's like a huge family party... Wonderful people, wonderful landscape. It's not about the competition, it's not about winning, it's about friendship and meeting great people," said Florian, a former winner who is taking part in the rally for the sixth time and driving an Aston Martin built in 1960.
Participants have to observe speed limits and drive as closely as possible to a given time. If they miss it they receive penalty points.
