SONAX in the fast lane in the classic car scene
The vintage car lovers joyful anticipation of the coming season was noticeable even during the Bremen Classic Motorshow at the beginning of February. The high demand for SONAX products and expert advice didn‘t leave much time for boredom. In March our trade fair stand went on the road again to the Retro Classics in Stuttgart. And in April the world’s biggest vintage car fair, the Techno Classica in Essen, gave the starting signal for the 2016 rally season.
SONAX is set to shine again in 2016 as a partner in top notch vintage car rallies. Commencing with the Lake Constance Classic at the beginning of May, our teams will proceed in the course of the season to the Danube Classic and ADAC Germany Classic in June as well as the Hamburg-Berlin Classic in August. In addition, in August SONAX will be flying the flag, as the sole car care specialist, at the Schloss Dyck Classic Days.
The season winds up with the creme21 youngtimer rally and the Cologne Historic in September. Besides participation in the established rallies, the SONAX VW camper will be starting this year at the Silvretta Classic in Austria, for the third time. Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles have lavishly restored it and since 2014 it has been a glorious feature in the vintage scene in its historical brand look from the time of our company’s foundation. The Volkswagen T1, first licensed in 1964, always attracts the gaze of the public. Participants of further vintage rallies also benefit from the high quality care products. SONAX is active in the OCC Coastline trophy in June, as well as the „PS Speicher Rally“ in July, in which the teams are equipped with products for vehicle care.
Among the year’s highlights is the participation of the SONAX Team in a red BMW 328 from the year 1937 at the Mille Miglia in Italy. This is thanks to the ongoing cooperation with the BMW Group Classic. Among the services provided by SONAX in this partnership are the provision of training courses for the valeting of vintage vehicles, the provision of vehicle care experts on the spot at classic car events and supplying the Munich manufacturer with high performance products.
A matter close to our hearts is the lasting cooperation with the charity "Lebenshilfe Gießen". SONAX supports the classic car fund raising event, which for more than 20 years has been assisting people with disabilities, with care products for the winning vintage car and provides material prizes for the winners.
