What a weekend it was: Sun without end and accordingly good mood and spirit of departure in probably all people who have gasoline in their blood. There was also really a lot going on: Mercedes-Benz introduced nationwide its new A-Class. The Six Hours of Spa with the cars of the WEC, the Spanish GP in the Motorcycle World Championship Moto GP and the first two races of the DTM in Hockenheim addressed the motorsport friends; The 31st Oldtimertage Berlin-Brandenburg were then rather something for the fans of older cars. At the DTM and in the capital we also showed the flag, because in Berlin we operate our shop in the middle of the bustle around the old cars in the Classic Remise; in Hockenheim, in front of the north stand, we set up our trailer and equipped it with the latest developments in all scales. Of course, with the large format 1:12.
In the blog post from last Thursday we prepared you to be present at Hockenheim: Thank you very much for being so numerous! In the post we said that Gary Paffett's four wins make him the most successful driver of the brand's Hockenheim-branded cars; On Saturday he added his Vita to the fifth winner's trophy at this point. Via this link you will reach the model cars that we still have in stock for the British born on March 24, 1981. We thank our customers for the fact that our stock of miniatures brought to Hockenheim has decreased drastically. In demand were the model cars for the DTM as well as the articles for the new Stefan Bellof collection - both the t-shirt and the models of CMR seem to have become a must have among the fans.
In Berlin it was just as hot: Temperatures around 20 degrees caused a large car and public rush on the grounds of the former tram depot. Not only the young and vintage cars in their exhibition boxes, but also the lush open air attracted the car fans. Very many Porsche 911 of all vintages, but also VW Beetle and Mercedes-Benz '8 were seen and to buy. In our shop, we presented the new Porsche 911 GT3 RS 2015 and the BMW M1 in the scale 1:12, around which often people formed; There was a lot of crowds, but our managing director Bernd Hahn always kept track of things. He came specially from Asslar to support our Berlin team. Before the Classic Remise a parts market was established, whose offer was also gladly accepted.
Heidi Hetzer again a crowd attraction
The fresh grilled sausages and the chili con carne were the hits of the gastronomy, which also provided for cool drinks. One or the other drink will have needed world rogue Heidi Hetzer, because she never tired of autographs in front of her Hudson Great Eight from the year 1930 - called Hudo - and to tell from her 2017 completed world tour with this classic car. One has to say: Before her all other program items of the weekend fade. If you did not manage to stop by, you should be aware that our shop is looking forward to visitors all year round. A visit to the Classic Remise is always worthwhile, because the inspection of the exhibited cars in principle is possible on any day and despite museum character costs nothing: visit us on the Wiebestr. 36-37, 10553 Berlin.
