    I have once again recieved an invitation to show my 'Bugatti Art' at the Automotive art show to be held with the European Concours d'Elegance 2004 in Düsseldorf, Germany 3.-4. July at the Düsseldorf Galopp, and I would like to encourage everybody on the Ferrarichat to visit and/or participate in this great event. There will be major classes for Ferrari and Bentley this year and you will find more info about this event at: http://www.european-concours.com

    Ooooooh, pfffffffffffffffff is it not any longer in Schwetzingen?!?!?
    I`m very, very sad to hear (and see on the web-site/thankx for the link) this
    news;(
    Schwetzingen castle is just 1km close to me.
    Why the hell Düsseldorf????
    The surrounding in Schwetzingen was so superb & perfect.

    Great news for you Carsten!
    Congratulation to be invited on such an awesome great event!!!!

    Thank you Wolfgang!
    I believe the event was moved because of the larger population in and arround Düsseldorf (11 millions) and because the organizers were invited by the city of Düsseldorf this year. The Schwetzingen castle and garden is indeed a very awesome place and really beautiful (even more so when surrounded by historic automobiles like Ferrari and Bugatti) and I too fell in love with that place during my first visit last year.
    Nevertheless I'm quite sure that it will be as great a show even if not in Schwetzingen this year. I know the organizers are doing a huge job and are putting all of their efforts in to make this event live up to the events in Schwetzingen. I see why you are dissapointed living so close to the Schwetzingen castle, but still I hope to meet you and other of the forum users in Düsseldorf. I'm convinced that the famous Düsseldorf horse race track will be a beautiful match to the Ferrari's prancing horse and the Bugattis horse shoe shaped radiators.

    Vive La Marque &
    Forza Ferrari

    Carsten,

    I will wait for the running list with exhibitors/cars.
    Last year in Schwetzingen were on 4-5 Ferraris and just a few Bugattis. And to be honest, I don`t care about the rest;)
    If it worth it, I will drive to Düsseldorf.

    LOOOOOOL

    I sure hope you're right.....but I guess we will then be forced to drag all of the forum users to Düsseldorf, and then force them to buy an original drawing each.... then force them to eat this drawing and then buy another one.... :D
    I would certainly make you my manager, if we succed in doing so.... :D

    Thats the real best idea!!!!
    I`m doing 7-8 fairs a year in the USA. Lots of time & cash for the trip, hotel, rental and booth reservation.
    Never ever with the idea to sell the whole booth over the weekend!
    Always for reputation, advertisement, to get in touch with new customers and "to be as a part of" there. If I can sell or doing great business....wow, thats absolut amazing but should not be expected.
    More important is the time after the show!!!
    I call this "Afterburner". Lots of call, fax and mails regarding my booth 1-2 weeks B4 at the xy show.

    Good luck & we will see us;)

    Carsten,
    one last thing (B4 I must leave the chat for today - going for dinnre with Heiko from hg parts):

    "The Big Deal"......will hopefully never been done!
    "A" big deal is fantastic and let us run for the next big deal!
    "The" ...is the last & final!
    Like driving Ferrari:
    Its not the target!
    The way is the target!

    Hello Gents,

    The Schwetzingen part will be a new and completely different event, and has absolutely nothing to do with the one and only true European concours d'Elegance to be held at Düsseldorf Galopp 3rd-4th July this summer.
    I've just spoken to Mr.Bob Gathercole who is the enthusiastic organizer of the true 4th European Concours d'Elegance, and he told me that the true fourth event has NOTHING WHATSOEVER to do with the event which will be held at the same time in Schwetzingen. Also, and this is very important, Bob Gathercole told me that he will in Düsseldorf have a major display area exclusively for Ferrari drivers from Germany, Holland and Belgium, as well as from other countries. Further, beside this there will be a special class for Ferraris with special coachwork, and he have already had several entries in that class. Personally I strongly encourage all Ferrari owners/drivers here, to support this VERY wellorganized event. I'm sure that many of you will soon be informed about this event via club newsletters, "Ferrari World" and others.
    Please also have a look at this link: http://www.european-concours.com


    The very best regards

    Hello Carsten,

    thanks a lot for this important news!
    I will go to "the one and only rear" to Düsseldorf.
    Schwetzingen is just around the corner, but I don`t care about and I would like to see the Real Stuff!!!
    Who is going?
    Maybe we can drive together? Let me know and I could arrange something;)

    Hello all, :)

    With the 4th European concours d'Elegance just arround the corner I hereby once again strongly encourage everybody with an interest in Ferraris, owners and enthusiasts to consider visiting or joining the 4th European Concours d'Elegance to be held 3rd and 4th July 2004 at the Düsseldorf Galopp in Düsseldorf, Germany!
    There will be two seperate display areas for Ferraris only...one for all the classic Ferrari models, and one for the newer cars just in front of the Automotive artshow where I and other Automotive artists will be exhibiting our works!
    It would be awesome to have a huge gathering of Ferraris at this event, and I would be very happy to meet all of you there, and I know that the organisers will appreciate your support!!!

    Please visit the organisers' website for more information on the event: http://www.european-concours.com

    Hi Wolfgang,
    on which day do you drive to Düsseldorf, Saturday or Sunday or both??
    I want to go there to and I hope to see you.

    Hi Carsten,
    I don`t need to ask you on which day you are in Düsseldorf and I know where to find you.
    See you.

    Is there someone who know`s a parkingplace for our F.-Cars ????
    It would be nice to have all together, isn`t it??

    And I hope the Sun is shining on the weekend !

    Have a nice day
    Frank B.
