Whilst we are amazed to keep seeing our lovely logo showing up in the media in connection with our events during the Monaco F1™ Grand Prix, a lovely email has reached us from German rally ace Jutta Kleinschmidt.

Prince Leopold of Bavaria, Jutta Kleinschmidt, Christian Seitz and the football trophies

Together with H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria she attended the World Stars football match with us at the Stade Louis II. in Monaco, and joined our Neuschwansteiner table for the official gala dinner. We thank her for her company and insight anecdotes to the rally scene. But even more so – Thank you, Jutta, for this very nice complimenting email:

„I Know H.R.H Prince Leopold for many years, we are good friends and share the motor racing passion. It was great to spend time with him at the World Stars football match where he was as Ambassador for the new Bavarian luxury beer, Neuschwansteiner. Tasting the March beer at the gala after the match, I have to say, I understand why he became an Ambassador: It tastes great and the bottle looks very stylish! Well fit for Monaco.“

Jutta will compete in the 2016 Dakar rally and she can be assured that Neuschwansteiner will closely follow her racing actions, with all our fingers crossed.
