Ball Seaside Traditional Rally 2022: 120 classics from 7 many years

With the Bull Beach Classic for classic cars built until 2002, Motor Press Stuttgart celebrates the memory of its founding publisher, racing driver Bull Beach (1911 to 2012) from the Black Forest.

For a comeback, the rolling museum is stocked more extensively than ever: in this ninth edition of the rally, a total of about 120 classic cars from seven decades of motoring history will begin. The oldest car dates back to 1934: the MG Magnette NA Open Tourer, a gently restored British light convertible sports car.


With Beginning Number 1, daughter of Paul Beech D. Patricia Schulten and his son Peter Paul Beach Museum on Wheels. The siblings compete for the first time in the two-day classic rally with the Veritas RS (built 1947). Her father celebrated the 1950 German Championship with this open sports car. With silver-colored Veritas, the two lead the field.

Other notable participants are Christian Geistdorfer, two-time World Rally Champion as assistant Walter Rohrl, Mario Ketterer, King of the Mountains at Schweinsland as a racing driver, and Joachim Winkelhawk, Le Mans winner and successful traveling motorist. He drives an Opel Kadett C GT/E (built 1977) from the Opel factory group.


By the way, this classic car rally isn’t about who’s the fastest, but who has the best control on their gas foot. Because the special stages are primarily about regularity and the ideal time to pass through the light barrier or drive over the tube. We will keep you updated with everything happening during these eventful days.


Day 1: Team Jaguar ahead of the two-time overall winners

After the first stage over 240 kilometers, the team of Thomas Diedrichs and Victoria Muller Done lead in a Jaguar XK 140 (built 1956). With a slim lead of six points, they relegated the two-time overall winner, Dr. Norbert Grismayer and Ferdinand Baumgartner in a Mercedes 220 S, a “fin” sedan from 1959. The gaps behind the leading duo are also very small, so anything is possible in the second and final stage.
