Background


As this car was built in Würzburg, Germany in 1984-85, parts from Sweden was sent and on contract Herbert built a race car of a Volvo 242 Turbo from the USA. The contract was with Volvo, and that the car was to be used in European and the International Hill Climb Championship. In 1988 Herbert entered the classic ”Checker Pike Peak Auto Hill Climb” in the USA, the qualification went well and Herbert ended up 2nd in the class. Not bad at all.

Herbert raced in all of Europe, sometimes with good results and sometimes not so good results. The car is in the same good condition as in the 80's. In 2004 Herbert passed away and the car was left in the good hand of his son Franz.
