‘72STAGPOWER’s Ford Capri RS 2600 will be on the road from 9/10 June at the “Paul Pietsch Classic”, a highly prestigious old-timer rally in the Black Forest. The Klient Capri RS 2600 (built in 1969) will be driven by the journalist Boris Schmidt (“Frankfurter Allgemeine”). Another legend will be sitting beside him in the cockpit: world rally champion Christian Geistdörfer, who was once Walter Röhrl’s co-driver.

Paul Pietsch is not only the founder of the “Motorpresse Stuttgart” empire, but also excelled as a first-class racing driver in the nineteen-thirties and nineteen-fifties. Pietsch even drove in Grand Prix races, and took third place in a Maserati in the German Grand Prix on the Nürburgring in 1939.
