PRESS INFORMATION and INVITATION for 02.10.2016
World’s only classic car competition makes its debut
1st International Preservation Concours at Warm-Up 2 at MOTORWORLD München
On 2nd October, 2016, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., MOTORWORLD Munich will be welcoming visitors to Warm-Up 2 with yet another special highlight. During the open-brand scene meeting, the “1st International Preservation Concours” will be celebrating its debut. It is the only one of its kind in the world. Eligible to take part are pre-1974 historic cars and motorcycles in an absolutely original, unrestored condition. The competition, which is being organised by the Munich-based club Classics for Charity e. V. (CFC) in cooperation with MOTORWORLD, complies with the strict criteria of the Fédération International des Véhicules Anciens (FIVA), the international federation for classic car clubs. Visitors to Warm-Up 2 can also once again look forward to seeing countless motoring treasures. A true film star – the original Herbie Beetle which visitors may drive – and a VW T1 Bulli from Lufthansa dating from the 1960s are certain to be crowd-pullers. The diverse programme will include a multimedia photographic exhibition devoted to the most iconic car of all time, the VW Beetle, and of course information about how the construction of MOTORWORLD München (which is due to open at the turn of 2017/2018) is progressing. Everybody is welcome to come to Warm-Up 2, admission is free.
Common vehicles of their time (up to 1973) that are still in their original condition with a clearly clearly evident, where possible with comprehensive documentation (purchase agreement, servicing bills, etc.) and fitted with original contemporary accessories, are pre-destined candidates for the 1st International Preservation Concours. The Munich-based club Classics for Charity, in cooperation with MOTORWORLD, has created the first competition in the world that focuses on popular vehicles and motorbikes instead of luxury limousines, as is usually the case. And that means the everyday heroes of their time. Be it Grandma’s old Beetle or a long-hidden garage vehicle – any owner of a classic car or motorcycle that meets the competition criteria shouldn’t miss the chance to apply to take part.

Colourful and splendid diversity at Warm-Up 2
At the first Warm-Up last June, there were more than 2,100 enthusiasts’ vehicles to be marvelled at, and around 10,000 visitors grasped the opportunity to attend this open-brand scene event. Vehicle enthusiasts, scene fans and interested visitors to the stylish and informative Warm-Up 2 will be able to see and feel how the former railway repair shop in the Freimann district of Munich will be transformed by the turn of 2017/2018 into a vibrant, attractive and open mobility centre and event ensemble. Numerous vehicle aficionados and classic car clubs have already announced that they will be attending, and so once again visitors can look forward to a colourful and splendid variety of classic cars, modern classics, super sports cars, U.S. and customised cars, as well as special vehicles and classic motorcycles. They can also take a look at the huge railway repair hall covering 24,000 square metres, which will accommodate MOTORWORLD München when the restoration and expansion work has been completed, and take refreshments at various stalls.
