On 10 September 2016, the weather gods smiled on Lakolk Beach – right on time for the first “Rømø Motor Festival”. The event that brought together fascinating classic cars at the seaside in brightest sunshine attracted lots of spectators.

Close to the race track or from an elevated position in the dunes, they watched the 30 cars and 10 motorcycles – all from the time before 1939 – performing spectacularly in speed races on sand (furlong distance). The event was inspired by a historic car race which took place on the island of Fanø from 1919 to 1924.
The “Vintage Parking” zone for classics cars built until 1957 also created a special flair. Rich engine sounds, happy visitors on the beach, euphoric facebook comments: The first “Rømø Motor Festival” was a great success! Most likely it will get a follow-up next year!

During the race weekend, Genz Appartments was fully booked – with lots of classic cars in front of the apartments. Our guests were absolutely thrilled about this amazing late summer weekend on Rømø!
