This journey to the Austrian city of Graz will be an experience not only for G-Class lovers. Each participant will drive a G-Class on the traditional test track on the “Schöckl” mountain. After that they will take a tour of the Magna Steyr plant where the G is produced.

But it is not just every new model series that will take this test, as new or improved features also mean a trip back to the Schöckl to test transmissions, shock absorbers, engines or other major assemblies. The participants will have a few benefits such as parking fees, plant tour or customer care during the event. They will enjoy the plant tour of the G-Class production, a guided tour through Graz, driving on the test track and a relaxing evening in a hostelry. There will be eight to eleven participants for this exclusive trip. The first event will take place on 26th June and the second one on 20th July 2015.
