600Eric will be showing his 1999 E300 W210 Turbodiesel in Class 6 Friday at Legends of the Autobahn.

If any member are planning to be up in the area and would like to join my group for dinner either Thursday, Friday or Saturday please let me know so we can make appropriate plans.

Jeff, congrats on the Quail invite. May I ask what class your car is in? I have plans to propose a class in 2-3 years to the Quail. I was turned away for an AMG 50th class for 2017.

Al:

I have offered my cars to The Quail over the past few years only to be very politely turned down. I'm excited that they accepted my 190E 2.3-16 this year. As far as which class the car will be featured is unknown at the time since I allowed them to determine which class, but if I had to guess I would say the car will be grouped with Post War Racing since the 16V was raced in the DTM series (16V, EVOI, and EVOII)

I was a little surprised The Quail did not feature the AMG cars for the 50th anniversary in 2017. That said, if you are successful in creating a class in the next few years, perhaps I can join you with one of my other cars.
