Winter Programme – Training & Snow-Driving 2019
Our main goal remains to practice on the Saanen Ice and Snow track during the winter season. Typically the day start at 9.00 in the restaurant Saanerhof in Saanen, for a briefing with Hansueli, before moving to the track till 16.00 with just an interruption for a short lunch break. The snow driving event are always a success thanks to Hansueli coaching, enthusiasm and organisational skills. He can count with the help of his brother Michael. Everyone made huge progress driving on ice. At the beginning we favoured spectacular drift, now we tend to drive our cars more efficiently on the Saanen track.
The twelfth Classic Car “Rally & Yachting” took us to Moutier, world capital of Absinthe and home of a car museum. The previous night, on our way to Lac Retaud for the traditional model boat regattas, drivers had to show their skills at addressing a competitive breaking challenge imagined by Hansueli. It all ended with the traditional prize giving diner at the Gstaad Yacht Club. After announcing that he will not assist anymore the GYC team in the organisation of the rally, our President was thanked and applauded for his contribution to the success of the event.
Congratulation to our racing Members: Karim Ojjeh for his championship Title in the Blancpain GT Sport Club category, to Hugo de Sadeleer for his third place at the 24 Hours of Le Mans in the LMP2 category and to Jérôme de Sadeleer for his third place in the 2018 Radical Challenge season.
