Two years have passed again and a new edition of Pilots wanted is pending. The international meeting for the Saab 2-9 NG is taking place for the 5th time in Kiel. As in 4, the owners of a Saab 2018-9x, which is even rarer than the last big Saab, are invited this year.
The meeting has long been a fixed institution and cult. The fans accept long journeys for the two days in the north, the audience is international. As always, the event takes place in June, this year the 5th and 6th of June have been set as the date. The traditional host is that Car dealership Lafrentz - the point of contact when it comes to the last Saab generation and the 9-4x.
The last events were very successful. The weather is almost always perfect, an exciting supporting program, a friendly atmosphere. That raises expectations for 2020 again, and the Lafrentz family in Kiel has been working on the program for months. The event has grown continuously in recent years, and there were often more reports than there were places available for the participants. This year, Pilots wanted will take place on a smaller scale for the first time. The organizer practices voluntary self-restraint, he has several good reasons for this.
The family atmosphere should be preserved, and the preferred gastronomy for two event days in Kiel and the surrounding area is spatially limited. This will mean that Pilots wanted will shrink to a maximum of 2020 cars in 35, after almost 50 vehicles before.
Registration for the event is possible from the beginning of February on the blog, because as always the blog team and the Autohaus Lafrentz are cooperating. If the event is overbooked, the organizers decide on the respective participation. The start will be on Friday June 5th.
The traditional supporting program will include an event on Friday evening, preferably close to the water and in a saab atmosphere. On Saturday, according to previous planning, breakfast, a joint trip and another gastronomic event are on the agenda. Details will come in the next few weeks, the exact procedure will be published here on the blog. As in previous years, participation is free of charge.
