For a bit of blood refreshing in the scene, the organizer of Switzerland’s largest vintage car rally “Raid called, therefore,” in addition, “Raid the Young Raiders Challenge”. An occasion not only for the young, up to a maximum of 35-year-old driver and passenger.

“The vehicles may of course be older,” says Bichsel with a grin. Specifically, the vintage vehicles should not have been built before 1989, and the young-timer after 1999. “The previous two events showed,” said Bichsel, “the fact that many of the Young are fascinated, in spite of the latest technologies of historic cars.” The 3 comes. Young Raiders Challenge by the most beautiful and for many Young people, probably unknown areas of Switzerland. “This Discover the home belongs to our concept,” says Bichsel.
