This is not the first time that he is driving a car. The story of the various ways in which he has followed his passion for cars and motor sport in the course of his life would fill many an evening and is often not without....

Ralf Mackel got a new racing car for 2004 after he did a couple of laps at Hockenheim last year with the backup of Schnabl Engineering in his 1964 Formula Super Vau. Ralf wants to fullfill his dream and drive racing cars.

We will help him as much as we can with this "crazy" project. After he picked up his new car on Saturday, a Formula Renault, we fabricated specially for him a new racing seat in order to make driving for him as comfortable as possible.

Ralf wants together again with the Hockenheimring drive a few laps at the Formula 1 circuit.

We will update you about the activities of Ralf´s dream later on .
