It was decided to combine first public appearance of the car with test drive. Our experienced test team took part in Dikli Palace annual regularity rally. Workshop test licence plates were used during this event. Event route included friendly for classic cars asphalt roads through several cities of Latvia.
One of stages was held on race track in Riga which we normally use for our regular drive in activities. During event notes were taken and later provided to the workshop master for necessary adjustments before delivery. In total more than 700 km were covered during this test.
At the end of first participation in public event first surprise made appearance - 190SL got a prize for the best restoration judged by participants of the rally, i.e. competing classic car owners and restorers.
