On 30th August 2017, the Eurobike 2017 trade fair in Friedrichshafen opens its doors. As one of the leading bicycle trade fairs, with more than 1,350 exhibitors from around 50 countries, according to the organisers figures, the Eurobike is set to break all records.
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.
From June 29th to July 2nd the asphalt at the Nürburgring will be glowing again when the racing fans on the trucker scene will be gathering for the third from a total of nineraces in this years international ADAC Truck Grand Prix. About 130,000 spectators are expected at the mega event. The SONAX experts can be found in the paddock at the Stand G 11.
Windscreen cleaners can smell good as well as working effectively. The new SONAX Antifreeze & Clear View Ice Fresh winter windscreen cleaner, for example, works really well and is especially conceived for the colder seasons.
"Piano lacquer" panels in vehicle interiors are modern and look stylish. When scratches tarnish the image, a good polish is recommended.
Insects on the bonnet are the reason for damages in the paintwork. The longer they stick on it, the deeper the residues eat their way into the paintwork surface.
SONAX will introduce the product innovations of the year at the Tuning World Bodensee from the 5th to the 8th of May. Furthermore, the visitors at the booth in hall B3 will be eagerly awaiting celebrities from the tuning scene: TV’s „HP-Profi“ „J.P.“ Kraemer will be meeting his fans at SONAX – as will US star customiser John D’Agostino.
SONAX has been acclaimed „Brand of the Century“ for the second time. This cross sector award is presented every three years by a high ranking advisory council of the „Deutsche Standards Editionen“ publishing house to German brands which represent their industry in a unique manner. And we really set the standards in car care products with premium requirements.
You probably know the problem: The front windscreen is actually new, but already scratched. This is especially disturbing against oncoming light. Potential causes could be a dirty windscreen or wiper blades, but it could also be the trusty old ice scraper.
We look forward to welcome you at our booth and to inform you about our latest SONAX novelties! Get to know the leading German premium car care manufacturer.
