Traditional presentation of the vehicles in Aachen where the best riders in the world are ready to compete

28 May  - Mercedes-Benz is supporting the “World Equestrian Festival” with a chauffeur service once again in 2015. Twenty vehicles will be at the event’s disposal at the weekend, including S-class, G, M and V-class vehicles as well as Sprinters and Vitos. Shortly before the traditional event begins, Matthias Hindemith, Sales Director Cars for Aachen Cologne and Koblenz, symbolically handed over a key to Carl Meulenbergh, President of the Aachen-Laurensberger Rennverein e.V. (ALRV).

Mercedes Benz has partnered the event for over 60 years. The best show-jumpers, dressage riders and four-in-hand drivers are expected in Aachen for the “World Equestrian Festival Aachen 2015” from May 29th-31st, before one of the world’s biggest sporting events this year - the European Championships (August 11th-23rd) – is staged in Aachen later this year. The overall budget for the two events is 24 million Euros, the overall prize-money totals 3.16 million Euros.

So everything is ready in Aachen where this week the top of the world is heading for the center of the equestrian community, Aachen, Germany. The Rolex Grand Slam is what it is all about. The show always attracts the best riders in the world and this year we find nine of the top ten riders on the World Ranking present which includes the top three; Scott Brash, Daniel Deusser and Steve Guerdat. A total of 14 Nations will be represented by 48 riders, riding 136 horses.
