On the classic car scene, it will soon be time to launch the 2023 season with the Spring VETERAMA at the Hockenheimring.
The world may be discussing alternative drive systems, but the combustion engine still has a very special tradition, especially here in Germany.
This is the place where the automobile was invented.
Cars that are sought-after worldwide were and still are built in Germany.
In the world of motorsport, Germany set a number of incredible standards with the Silver Arrows of Mercedes and Auto Union.
And on two wheels too, Germany’s unique leading role is still remembered today.
From A for Adler to Z for Zündapp, there was once a huge diversity of motor vehicles across the country.
Germany also has a big tradition when it comes to bicycles.
In the 1920s and 30s, there were well over 200 bicycle manufacturers in the country.
It is important that these historical vehicles – which have born witness to our mobile past – are preserved for posterity.
VETERAMA has played a key role in doing just this for almost half a century now. Here, traders offer parts that are still to be found on long-forgotten shelves.
Over the course of the years, many small businesses have started to specialise in the manufacture of new parts that are made according to the original specifications.
VETERAMA has developed to become Europe’s largest classic car market.
Most of the “regular spots” at the Spring VETERAMA in Hockenheim have already been taken by established traders.
We have noticed, however, that there are also a lot of new registrations from providers who are applying to have a stand for the first time.
VETERAMA can therefore once again reckon with a full house, as the number of places that can be offered at the Hockenheimring can be increased at any time.
In addition to the popular Show Arena, where owners of classic cars can exhibit their vehicles, and the VETERAMA Market Place, where both classic cars and modern classics are offered for sale, there’s still plenty of space for new traders.
Just a few more weeks to go before the lights at the Hockenheimring change to green for the classic car scene.
