I know this section is titled "Upcoming events", but given there has already been discussion about the ACT MB Club's concours here, I will post my comments here.
This would have to rate as one of the best of this type of events I have ever attended (and I have attended many). For a smaller club such as the ACT MB Club to attract so many cars (both entered for judging and for display), many from interstate, is a credit to them and the event organisers. The number of Mercedes attending would have to come close the the number I have seen at some of the larger NSW MB Club's concourses at Silverwater Park, and certainly many more than the number attending their recent concours at Fox Studios. The added interest of all the other marques (the event being the Shannons German Autofest) added the extra interest to make this one of the best displays ever.
For those who were not so fortunate as to be present at the event, photos have been posted at http://www.mbcnsw.org.au/forum/index.ph ... 395.0.html
