Our teamboss Walter Farkas followed up a invitation for social purpose brought to us in 2008 from the municipality of Krekel.
Our everywhere popular pensioner VW New Beetle was the secret star on the annually village- and child-party in Krekel in the Eifel.
On the 6th and 7th of June, we could contribute in spite of exceedingly bad weather something to the success of this party. One of the coorganizer of this event, Peter Meurer of our sponsor FAS had the idea to give a understanding to the children what rallysport means on a selected stage with our Beetle.
Taxi rides with our Beetle were offered against payment of a small donation in favour for the municipalities kindergarten. Then in quick one, the weather conformist tempo two rounds with the small passengers, considering the necessary security, were carried out in each case. The enthusiasm of the children was contagious and was also transferred on the adults. With the result that also the âgrown upsâ wanted to take place on the âhotâ seat.
After motto âmore size = more moneyâ was raised the voluntary donation for adults accordingly what meant therefore also more money for the kindergarten. At last apprx. 100 rides with children and adults were carried out and at least also the village pastor took the place next to the teamboss. However, it is not delivered whether he has asked before with the big boss for assistance.
In spite of the modest weather you can say about 1000 visitors in a village with ca. 280 inhabitants that this was a succesful event. Our appearance was absolutly a small highlight with the result that we went home with an invitation for the next year.
By the way, with loading up of the Beetle the sky has risen and we could start the return journey with beaming blue sky. Whether was this the pastor?
