in Austria, timed on tachometers, with a warm welcome in many of the villages along the route. To be eligible for the 2013 Ennstal-Classic, which runs from 17th to 20th July, cars must be built before 31st December 1972. Registration is open until Thursday 28th February.

UK MOTORING DEPARTMENT TAKES PART IN 'MOVEMBER'
