The Cincinnati Section Celebrated their Section of the Year award in a big way.

We met at Full Throttle Go Karting at 9:30 and 14 members raced through two qualification rounds and a Feature Race to find out who the Fastest Member in the Section is. Fastest Driver went to Eric Diehl, with Section to Peter Emslander and Third Mike Vanselow.

While the 14 members were racing the Parking lot slowly filled out with close to 30 cars, and another 40 members joined us to cheer on the feature race, and then we started out Car Show.

The Car show featured many original amazing looking Mercedes Benz vehicles from all time periods. Highlighted by just restored 1959 190SL, the Car show was an amazing hit for those in attendance.  

A Buffet BBQ lunch was provided to all members, which filled all of our bellies, and left little leftovers.

Rick Siefert, Central Region Regional Director and also National Awards Chairman, was in attendance to present the Section of the year Banner and Plaque to the Section. He gave a wonderful speech and enjoyed spending time with members from our section.

The Car show Award winners all received a custom go kart tire trophy, and the Section raffled off many items including two watches for the Dragonfly Foundation, a non-profit which supports local kids with cancer. Overall over $100 was raised for them.

At the end of the day, all members received an 11X17 Section of the Year poster, and a Section of the Year window cling for everyone’s Benz!

We could not have asked for a better day to hold such an amazing event.
