V8 Hybrid Meet Switzerland Aug 2020

Post advance news of events you will be attending

Hi Felix,
congratulations - the idea of this "Hybrid-Treffen" is really striking - the most interesting choice of multiple brand cars ever - meeting in one place.
I am really tempted to join …

Hi Thomas

Thank you. I agree, it's a really interesting mix of cars, and it would be really cool if you would join. Depending on how many come from further away we could take that into account when planning (dinner Friday evening and/or Saturday etc).

And if you (or anyone else) has contacts to owners of any of these cars please spread the word. Mike (Michi) Koch is in charge of the organisation (coordination@jcc.ch).

I'm talking up the meet with this bunch in Tucson AZ. Perhaps they will commission me to bring it out.

What a coincidence to see such a car in a local museum.

It's being prepared for the Copperstate 1000 event.

I got to sit in it. Really cool car.

very cool Thomas, thank you. Great shots, lovely cars. I can't make out if this is the current issue? But no, we haven't been in contact with Octane- the meet has been in the pipeline for a good two years.

Having put off the decision whether to hold the meet this year or not, we thought initially probably not, but have now decided to hold it anyway. So pack your bags!! Jens has promised to be there with his Gordon Keeble we need plenty of people there to harrass him about not coming with his C-V8. The meeting is on Saturday- for those coming from further we can arrange for us to do something on Friday evening and Sunday.

Yes, that is a real shame- BUT, I'm confident that this meet will establish itself and will be held if not annually then every two or three years. Mike Koch, who is in charge of the organisation and has had contact with the other clubs, has said the resonance was extremely positive. So maybe next year or the year after?

Thanks, Felix -

I had been planning the trip till all this COVID-iousness.

I also had my DeTomaso friends in Augsburg & Stuttgart that were (are?) planning to attend.

I will let the DeTomaso friends know the show is still on - hopefully they can make it.

Myself - it seems like a terrific event, and it’s on my list with highest priority. What a great show, and it looks like a great venue.

Thanks for putting it together, this COVID and then subsequent gyrations of plans have thrown my travel schedule into a tizzy!

Hi Rocky

You can give your friends in Germany our contact (office@jcc.ch), we'd love to have them here. Or they can contact the Swiss De Tomaso club (www.detomaso.ch), the event is on their programme for this year- they're apparently quite enthusiastic about the meet. Looking forward to having you here another year!

Whatever of my Jensen is roadworthy - I’ll follow Jens ( and I’m sure he will not come in his CV8 :-) ).
