MERCEDES-BENZ 300SL CLASSIC
Join us on the 2022 300 SL Classic
In 2022, as plans now stand, the 300 SL Classic will be run in California and Nevada and, uniquely, we will be staying in a single hotel (most likely the Ritz Carlton Tahoe) in the Lake Tahoe area (no daily packing and unpacking!). While in Nevada, we will have some nice open road driving and a visit to historic Virginia City. While in California, we will also have beautiful mountain drives north, south, and west of Lake Tahoe. We will be passing through some historic mining towns in the Sierra Nevada mountains highlighting California’s Gold Rush history. Each day will feature an opportunity to not just stop for lunch, but also to experience some charming small towns with great history. The final routes and lunch stops are still being determined, but the 2022 Classic is shaping up to be another great opportunity to enjoy our beautiful 300 SL’s the way they were meant to be enjoyed. The Foundation Board is truly excited about adding a fifth and sixth state to our great rally legacy as we continue to move the Classic around the country—another unique aspect to the 300 SL Classic.
All Mercedes-Benz 300SL Coupes “Gullwings” (1954-1957) and Roadsters (1957-1963) are eligible for the 300SL Classic.
