Every year, when closing the last pages of the calendar, we cast thoughts back along the ways we have traveled, identify obstacles that have been overcome and evaluate the past events. The early years of the Antique Automobile Club Klasika were not really rich in events. Of course, over the eleven years of its operation, the club has expanded, gained strength, developed its traditions and has earned not only respect but also authority. So, what was so special and significant in the year 2019, which started out in an unusual and rather interesting way for the members of Klasika?

It’s a pity that we are decreasingly faced with the traditional form of calendar.

If our antique vehicle meeting “Timeless Classic” matches the solidity of “Riga Retro”, then the “Retro Jurmala” event in its free spirit – with Pasvalys “We drive”. Maybe we should not compare Pasvalys with Jurmala, but both events are definitely somehow similar. Maybe it’s playful on the Soviet theme; maybe both of them look forgiving at the vehicle age and the rules of participation. Or maybe because of the fact that it is always interesting to go there and participate in…
