OZBENZ members invited to attend/compete at MBCACT Annual Concours

Post by John Green » Mon 12 Aug, 2019 4:06 pm

After last years successful OZBENZ meet being held in Conjunction with the Mercedes-Benz Club of the ACT display day, this year all OZBENZ members have been invited to both display and compete alongside the Mercedes-Benz Club members at this years event on the 22nd of September. Essentially if you are a member of this forum or the OZBENZ Facebook page you can enter the event to either display your car or compete for a trophy with the same rights as a MB club member! OZBENZ members will also be able to attend the dinner being held at the German Club on the 21st of September.

Last year the MBCACT didn't run a Concours, due to lack of entrants. There is a bit of a story behind this, but the most important point is that the issues surrounding lack of interest in entering the event have been resolved. The new team running the event includes myself, so my efforts have been going into helping manage this event and not planning a second OZBENZ meet along the same format as last year. Inviting OZBENZ members to attend is a way of continuing the interaction between the two groups and to provide another National Meeting for the OZBENZ members.

Part of the restructured event is to have a stand out car attend each year and this year we thought we would start right at the very beginning. We have arranged to have a Patent-Motorwagen on display courtesy of Daimler Australia/pacific.
