„Live what you love and only as you like it“
In the heart of the Dolomites, in the quaint Eggental, surrounded by Catinaccio / Rosengarten and Latemar, once upon a time, lived the „Ganis“, known far and wide for their warm hospitality.
The „Ganis“ created a comfortable kingdom in one of the most beautiful places, surrounded by meadows and peace, where they had the chance to cuddle their guests and to surprise them every day. And, because the Ganis were a lively and popular company, fun-loving and never bored, they found several “secret places” where to take their guests to offer them great music and plenty of entertainment.
People came from miles around to spend funny and relaxing moments with the „Ganis“.
One day a stranger arrived in Eggental. He had already travelled half the world, but until then, he never found what he was looking for: the perfect combination between variety and peace, luxury and nature, pleasure and simplicity. Restless he walked on the shores of Carezza Lake, where, suddenly a fairy appeared from the turquoise waves of the lake. Shaking her head, she looked at him and talked to him in a crystal clear voice:
„Live what you love, create your space,
for your dreams, enjoy every moment,
with all the senses, only as you like it …“
The stranger was first taken aback, but then he realized that this was the key to his goal. And suddenly he felt arrived and ready to fully enjoy his life.
Welcome at Ganis Ganischgerhof Mountain Resort & SPA
Some events can be clearly recognized by the soundtrack at the hotel bar. If there are sentences like: “You can turn it up in second gear and let it twitch in fourth” or: “The gearbox has the greatest stress at the weekend”, then it is clear: a very special species has just arrived and is moving for a very special pastime. When such sentences fall, the Eggentaler Herbst Classic rises in and around Deutschnofen.
Lots of oldtimers enjoy South Tyrol and Trentino in an incomparable sound every year for three days. The sound of powerful and voluminous engines of the classic cars is unbelievable. And it seems as if the engines sound even more beautiful here than anywhere else, just as if not only the drivers, but also the souls of the cars, felt with every fiber, what the chief organizer, Klaus Pichler, promised when greeting: “Here, you drive in paradise ! ”
No wonder that 100 of the 122 teams of this edition where here also the last years, and for three teams this is the 10th edition. If you ask the participants what constitutes the addictive potential of the Eggentaler Herbst Classic, the answers are almost boring. The landscape. The food. The atmosphere. Peter Schmid, who is co-piloting his Triumph Spitfire GT 6 with his wife Daniela, also gives the same answers. “When we first saw it, we actually thought it was a one-off,” says Schmid, who drives around 25 rallies a year. Meanwhile he is with Daniela for the fourth time at the Eggentaler Herbst Classic and says with a satisfied expression: “It feels like vacation to us!”
They form a large family, the participants in the Eggentaler Herbst Classic, it is alto open to new members. Absolute rally newcomer is, for example, DJ John Munich, whose real name is John Jürgens and whose father Udo was one of the greatest in German-speaking show business. “I’ve never driven a classic car myself,” he says, which is why he also has some problems getting used to it: “I was actually busy enough driving the car and initially had some difficulties with the tests.”
The food. Anyone who has been a guest at the Ganischgerhof knows how much you can be spoiled with culinary delights. For participants of the Eggentaler Herbst Classic, however, the level is even higher. The Tyrolean evening with traditional bacon, cheese or dumplings – befitting with atmospheric live music – is high up on the Ganischgeralm, 2.040 msl. Gala dinner and final evening, on the other hand, come up with a whole tuna, tomahawk steak or huge dessert buffet. The efforts of the day want to be compensated for – and they sometimes have unpleasant surprises in store. “The oil pressure sensor,” says Dr. Eberhard Arnold with a slightly desperate smile and oil-smeared pants. Shortly thereafter, however, he appears in the noble twine and carefully twirled beard in the hotel restaurant – and gives a foretaste of what will be seen at the finals on the last day of the rally in Deutschnofen.
For the Concours d’Élegance, most of the participants dress up again – after all, there is an extra rating for the best outfit. Half a Deutschnofen is on its feet to watch the spectacle in the middle of the village. It is the culmination of three days of rally fascination. And it shows what ultimately makes the Eggentaler Herbst Classic, a very special rally: the atmosphere.
The Concours d’Élegance is moderated by Michael Hagemann, the German-speaking voice par excellence when it comes to classic cars. And that sounds, for example, like this: “The Pontiac GTO, built in 1966, has a 6.7 liter displacement, 350 hp, eight cylinders, needs 24 liters – over 50 kilometers. It is endless fun when you are driving, cruising and on the go. in Gran Turismo Omologato 200km / h fast, two tons dead weight without a dog. Larry Hagman or Samuel L. Jackson, they drove such a GTO. ”Some events can be clearly recognized by the soundtrack.
