MBCA National Event, Gemutlichkeit 2011, May 21-24, Mansfield, OH

Mercedes-Benz enthusiasts from across the country will be gathering in Mansfield, Ohio this May for Gemutlichkeit 2011, an MBCA National Event, with four days of fun and action, plus track and driving events. It all begins on Saturday May 21 with the Concours d’Elegance celebrating the 125th anniversary of the Automobile and also honoring all six generations of the SL. Driving events begin on Sunday, May 22 with defensive driving practice, autocross, and a road rallye. Sunday evening concludes with the Concours Banquet.

On Monday and Tuesday, May 23 and 24, attend the MBCA performance driving school at the world-famous Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course. You may choose to participate in the time trials and acceleration runs in your favorite Mercedes-Benz, new or old. Never driven on a track before? No problem – experienced MBCA instructors will be with you every step of the way.

If you’ve never been to an MBCA National Event, Gemutlichkeit 2011 is the one to attend, with dynamic and interesting activities that appeal to both veterans and first-timers alike. We expect a great turnout of SLs and a diverse cross-section of Mercedes-Benz models taking part in the Concours d’Elegance, with both judged and display-only classes (all years and models, including yours). In addition, there is the MBCA Road Rallye, covering the back roads and rolling hills of Ohio farm country. Many other gatherings, receptions, local tours and activities ensure time to mingle with friends and enjoy the sites. Your hosts are the Western Reserve Section which celebrates their 50th anniversary this year.

And what about that word? “Gemutlichkeit” is the name of one of the oldest MBCA National Events, with a history dating back to 1958. The word was used to describe those early events, roughly translated from German as “good times with friends”. And so it has been ever since.
