Best in Show 2023!

 These vehicles took Best In Show at the 11th annual DeutscheMarques German car show.

And there are always great stories that come from DM.
Consider, for example, the Best In Show Audi (lower left).
Owner Kal pulled into an Elkhart gas station yesterday morning. Kal owns a first generation (2012) Audi R8. At the next pump was a gen two R8 (2023). Naturally, Kal starts chatting with the owner. 1,400 HP at the wheels. Nice car!
The G2 owner said he was going to a German car show. The largest in America! Kal had never heard of DM, and had never visited the GCM (even though he lived in Richland for a time).
Kal made an on the spot decision to get out of work and drive 90 minutes north to Hickory Corners.
You already know the rest of the story: Kal won Best In Class for Audi.
Zero to hero in a matter of hours.
, Kal!

Depsite the weather, another record for DM - 568!

Parking map for DM 11

Hi Everyone,

Here’s our parking layout for DM11. It is similar to last year, but with some tweaks. As always, our amiable greeter Bradley S. Pines will direct you from the gate to the correct location. We are expecting another record number of cars! Show cars can enter beginning at 8:00 AM.
Special note: The BMW 2002 is our featured car this year. All 2002s will be parked in the same area. This will be a GREAT exhibit.
Similarly, we have a number of Porsche 356s coming from Detroit, Chicago and elsewhere.
