It all started with a spontaneous idea. Markus Lafrentz and I actually thought that maybe 10, but a maximum of 20 Saab teams would start. Registration was closed on Friday and an incredible 37 teams registered for our Saab Tour Kiel - Trollhättan!
What's really a larger number of participants than expected and, that's the other side, it would have been even more possible. Because many fans had already booked other ferries to Sweden, and if we had come with our proposal a few weeks earlier, then it would have become 50 teams sure.
You can book Team list Kiel-Trollhattan 2013 who sees that we have a celebrity traveling companion among us. Jan-Philipp Schuhmacher, Managing Director of the German subsidiary of Saab Parts AB, will accompany us to Sweden and spend the weekend at the festival. This also comes from the official Saab site a clear statement on the bond with the brand and fans. German media representatives will also be there to report about the festival. Everyone is talking about the Saab brand?

It seems so. Because the tour becomes an extraordinary event. On our list are not only Saab classics, but also Saab 9-5 II sportswear. That these vehicles, with approval and in the hands of customers, come to Trollhättan, is something of a small miracle. Because a few months ago, according to the opinion of the insolvency lawyers, all sports combinations from the pre-series should go into the junk press and only two copies remain.
The registration confirmations for the tour go to the fans today. Because of the lack of time in the last days, there was a little delay. Because we work on a small budget, sponsored by the Saab Parts AB, The Saab Service Kiel, The Saab center Bamberg and from two Saab fans who are not mentioned, it is not possible to distribute further “Rallye Plates” or “Welcome Packages” to fans who have chosen other routes to Trollhättan. Here, many readers persistently ask what I understand, but what only fills my already overcrowded mailbox.
Only the 59 participants with 37 vehicles are registered - which is "not quite" correct. Because we really have a pedestrian with us as participant number 60. His Saab is being restored, and at least he has found a lift for the way there. He's still looking for the way back. But that will also work, I'm sure of that. That's Saab Spirit. Being there is everything!
Another addendum on my own account: my calendar from "real life" is completely full this week. The blog, the Saab hobby, has to wait. Saabblog.net pauses for a few days ... it will continue in the next week!
