Industry News – Fortis Watch Sponsors 3rd Trofeo Baleares of Vintage Cars
The third legendary “Trofeo Baleares Clasico de Automovil” took place on Majorca, Spain. This year, 140 rare rallye and GT cars were registered – each of them a unique piece in the history of motor sports, and none of them built after 1976.
For four days, drivers from all over Europe, among them one of the legends of motor sports, Walter Röhrl, competed in two groups. One for speed (Competition Class) and one for driving exact average times (Regularity Class).
The winners of the 2003 Competition Class were:
1st : Jürgen Barth and Birgit Spaltmann in a Porsche 911 RS70
2nd : Walter Röhrl and Christian Geistdörfer in a Porsche Carrera SR
3rd : John and Jan Bosch in a Ferrari 365GTB Daytona
All winners received a Fortis Chronograph Alarm watch with special race engraving.
