It must be high profile historic hillclimb weekend. There’s the Edelweiss Trophy at Rossfeld in south east Germany with Porsche legend Walter Rohrl. Even snazzier perhaps is the Klausenrennen in Switzerland. Run on the Klausenpass, route 17 between Altdorf – on the A2 motorway, at the bottom of Lake Lucerne – and Linthal, along the Schachten Valley. Just be aware that r17 will be closed from 08:00 all day over the weekend.
