KdL Automotive Volvo onderhoud voor youngtimers en klassiekers Middelbeers Brabant

Winter trial 2012

On February 12 Scandcar (which sells a lot of new Volvo parts for classic Volvos) organized the Volvo Winter Trial in the southern part of The Netherlands and a small part in Belgium. Unlike many other Volvo Classic-events there was no limit in ages of the car or type of the Volvo. And that’s a very good thing! It’s much more fun when every Volvo is allowed to contribute and also delivers much more nice photos.

Thanks to my navigator (and brother-in-law) Mike we finished second in the Winter Trial and won a nice service package (which includes oil, oil filter, working gloves, brake fluid and a oil collector). Mike doesn’t own a Volvo yet (he drives a ’85 Mercedes-Benz 190) but after this Volvo event he’s sure he will buy a Volvo one of these days.

Here are the pictures I took of this Volvo rally. Enjoy!
