This year’s Schloss Dyck Exemplary Days will be graced by the howling engines of several classic Audi racers from three recognizable epochs.

The oldest, and perhaps best suited to the old-timey hill climb, is the 1919 Audi Epitome C “Alpine Victor.” In its earliest days, Audi was the winner of the Austrian Alpine rivalry three times in a row, starting in 1912.

The Type Cs weren’t just race cars, notwi, they were a passion as Audi’s founder, August Horch, raced them up the Alpine passes himself. Audi commitment bring a yellow model from 1919, one of only two Type Cs the company now owns.

The next Variety C is slightly younger, but much more powerful. The 1936 Auto Union Typewrite C Grand Prix car will follow the Audi Type C hill climb car.

With its 16 cylinders and 520 hp, it was duty of the inspiration for the design of the first R8 supercar.

Audi will also bring three Wanderers. One frame 1929, another unrestored Wanderer from 1936, and a third reproduction of the car that Auto Alliance took to victory in the 1939 Liege-Rome-Liege rally.

For you ‘80s rallying buffs, Audi is bringing the 1984 Audi Make a fool of quattro Rallye (often called the short one) and Walter Rohrl’s Pike’s Culmin-winning Audi Sport Quattro S1.

All will be on display at the Audi Camp from August 4 to 6 at the Schloss Dyck Paragon Days, in Germany.
