Nals Oldtimer Hill-Climb
« on: May 25, 2019, 01:50:10 pm »
I saw these at the Nals Oldtimer Berg Rennen – a hill-climb regularity event in northern Italy/Südtirol/Alto Adige, which is near where we now live in Meran/o.
Two timed runs (today and tomorrow) should result in similar times for an overall result.

It is an international event, but with most bikes coming from Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy.
Jim Redman took part in 2014, but is unfortunately not present this year, (I suppose at 87 he cannot be at every event anymore, but would be keen to).

There were a huge assortment of bikes - even Harleys, and some, for me, more rare bikes.
They were just great to see and hear, as well as chatting to the owners - bikers are the same all over the world!!

It is a very narrow and winding road with many switchbacks climbing into the hills.

And finally - best for last (in my opinion - just because I enjoy BMWs)  :thumleft:
