In 2022, the 300 SL Classic will be run from October 9, 2022, to October 14, 2022 (the 14th being the departure date) in California and Nevada and, uniquely, we will be staying in a single hotel, the Ritz Carlton Tahoe (no daily packing and unpacking!). While in Nevada, we will have some nice open road driving and possibly a visit to historic Virginia City. While in California, we will also have beautiful mountain drives north, south, and west of Lake Tahoe. We will be passing through some historic mining towns in the Sierra Nevada mountains highlighting California’s Gold Rush history. Each day will feature an opportunity to not just stop for lunch, but also to experience some charming small towns with great history. The final routes and lunch stops are still being determined, but the 2022 Classic is shaping up to be another great opportunity to enjoy our beautiful 300 SL’s the way they were meant to be enjoyed. The Foundation Board is truly excited about adding a fifth and sixth state to our great rally legacy as we continue to move the Classic around the country—another unique aspect to the 300 SL Classic. We will, again, limit the number of cars on the Classic to 50 to keep our group at a size everyone is comfortable with. Registration on this website will open in early April and an email announcement will be sent out to everyone who’s participated in prior Classics and to those who’ve expressed an interest in participating for the first time this year. If you have never participated in the Classic before, please email us from this website to get added to our reminder email list. As always, we at the 300SL Foundation are looking forward to seeing many of our good friends at the Ritz!


All Mercedes-Benz 300SL Coupes “Gullwings” (1954-1957) and Roadsters (1957-1963) are eligible for the 300SL Classic.
