  6. Slowman. This event invitation was distributed three months ago to several German forums and Mustang clubs. F.e. HOS and German GT500 forum. Many knew about this a long time ago. Sorry to hear that you have not heard about this earlier.
  7. Shelby Europe is having a party to celebrate the official first footsteps of Shelby American on European soil. Shelby is expanding their wings and will appear on the Essen Motor Show. If you are feeling a bit blue about not attending the Shelby Europe launch along with Aaron Shelby, Tracey L Smith and Gary Patterson in Essen this week, here is a peek at what MAY be seen at the show... If you ARE going to be at the show, we will hold a presentation in the Shelby booth (Hall 3, B151) on Friday at 3 pm, as well as have a great invitation only party on Saturday night. We look forward to seeing fellow Team Shelby members there!
  8. Invitation to all European Shelby GT500 owners. Join me and Team Shelby at the big Shelby meet organized by the German Shelby forum. This will be a super weekend with country drive, dragrace (if you want to) and a big dinner party. Plan is to drive together to the hotel on Thursday August 31. Make room in your agenda Aug 31 - Sep 3. http://www.shelbyforum.de/discussion/4195/6-shelby-gt500-treffen-01-03-september-2017-einladung-und-anmeldung/p1
  9. As the new official Director for Team Shelby Europe I can announce a superb event in Southern France. Shelby American in co host with Baume & Mercier presents the inaugural Team Shelby International Assembly on 26 April at Paul Ricard racetrack. This is a vintage Shelby and Cobra car event only. Due to the late announcement it was not possible to allow late model Shelbys, but we are working on that for future events. So if you have a vintage Shelby or Cobra and want to have some fun. Contact me for more information by email or here. See attached flyer and Facebook page Team Shelby European Region.
  10. Full coverage is the problem. There is no single US Insurance company that will do that.
  11. Hey Tony, the Re-Run didn't take place as there were a lot of insurance problems. It is a big problem getting full coverage for US cars driving around in Europe. Maybe Sean can chime in here. We are trying to tackle this for the 2016 SRE. The route for that one is just ready and we are finalyzing hotel choices. The 2016 SRE will take you around the most beautiful roads and countryside of The Netherlands, Belgium, France, England, Wales, Scotland and Ireland. Expect the two week SRE to start last week of July 2016. 2012 SRE veterans can add 4 countries to their list. Photo: A4086 near Mt Snowdon, Wales.
  12. When I received my Lund tune my speedo error was messed up. I can now change the parameters for that in the tune. When my speedo reads 100 km per hour it is actually 108. It needs to be the other way around. 105 on speedo in real about 100. That saves me speeding tickets. It is now set at 750 revs per mile. Which way do I have to set the new number? Lower or higher to correct this? Who can explain?
