When I spotted this beautiful Morgan Plus 8 on Palma’s Via de Cintura last Thursday, the Rally Clásico Isla Mallorca had just commenced. Even though this Roadster is a vintage car design, it was probably not old enough to classify for participating in the Mallorca rally. The UK-built Morgan Plus 8 was built between 1968 and 2004. This particular one was probably built after 2000 and thus, did not qualify for participation.
This year’s Rally Clásico Isla Mallorca finished last Saturday; the overall winning team was Dominik an der Heiden/co-driver Ottenburger in a 1979 Porsche 911 Carrera RSR. Congratulations. The winner in the Female category was Bel Dezcallar in a Triumph TR3.
The photo was taken in Palma, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: March 15th, 2012. The time was 19:57:46. The video was borrowed from the Internet, courtesy of YouTube and SO911ST, showing last year’s winning team, Stefan Oberdörster and his co-driver, Olaf Heupel, in a 1976 Porsche 911 ST, in this year’s rally.
