Silkeborg Veteranrally for the 14th time

As usual, Dantra participated with its old red DAF V 1600 DD from 1964, which had been washed and polished for the occasion and which again attracted a lot of attention this year. This time, over 120 trucks were entered and assigned numbers according to age - so when ours got number 39, it shows that the DAF belongs to the oldest third of the participating trucks. Many locals know the truck and still remember when it was bought and restored by haulier Svend Aage Jensen, the second generation of the family business.

Spirits were high from the start, with the participating cars parked side by side while we all had breakfast together. The conversation was lively and it was clear that many old friends and acquaintances met here. There was plenty of nostalgia on the program, as they talked about 'the good old days', says Kjeld Lundgreen from Dantra AB in Sweden, who together with his colleague Flemming Jensen from Dantra A/S had taken a seat in the cab of the red tractor.


The start went as always on a Saturday morning from DAB in Silkeborg, and one by one the participating vintage trucks drove out on the route. Along the way, there were five stations with different challenges - questions and tests to be carried out with the vintage trucks. One of the questions was whether Volvo had both a G88 and a G89 model. The correct answer, by the way, is yes.

This year's lunch break was held at Demstrup Autotransport, where the sandwiches were washed down with soft drinks and a chat about the old days in cozy company, before the trip went on to the last posts and then back to Silkeborg.


All in all, it was a really nice day, where our old, beautiful DAF spun like a cat in the landscape around Silkeborg and everywhere on the route was greeted by waving people who had taken a seat with tables and picnic baskets to follow the veteran rally.

Among the more than 120 participating cars, there were also a number of vintage trucks from abroad. While the oldest of the cars was over 80, the youngest was just over 30 years old.
