My thanks also to the hundreds of smart owners past and present for their kind messages and emails of support.  


We started in the days before UK smart centres existed, before twitter, before Facebook and only a couple of years after smart launched in Europe.  


We look back to the UK and international events we have organised enabling smart owners and enthusiasts to benefit from 'all things smart' ...London to Brighton, Destination Brooklands, The smart Festival, countless smarttimes events across Europe and, of course, the annual visit to smartville Hambach including visits to BRABUS, Bottrop.  Additional memories such as our Hambach Roadbooks (started long before the days of in-car GPS), Victor's Terrace Bar, maintaining the only regularly produced 'in print' smart related car magazine '4site' for many years and so much more.  We even had our panel swap zone back in the days when it was fairly easy (and popular) to swap panels on the smart 450!


We also take pride in the fact our events also introduced people to people resulting in new long term relationships and even new families!


Of course a huge number of people behind the scenes made this all possible with their untiring work, efforts, fun and laughs - we could not have done this without you. Our thanks also to a range of UK Mercedes and smart Retailers for their support through the years including, of course, smart of Edinburgh.


We wish you well and meantime, for any questions, please see the Contact Us sections from homepage.

Thank you for all your years of support.
