Once a racer, always a racer
Motor racing is getting back on track in Europe and so is our Royal brand ambassador, H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria. Once a racer, always a racer, that is true for him, and he is as keen as always to enjoy fast cars and driving at the limit.
As H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria enthusiastically explains: “Spring has started and with it the racing season – eagerly awaited! I am very much looking forward to attend several fabulous races and historic racing events! Especially at this time of the year, I always very fondly remember my active time as a racing driver, when I was actively competing as BMW works-driver for six years, racing at the limit of danger. As always I look forward to drive some of these fantastic race cars soon again. Today I can drive just for fun. I am very proud being brand ambassador for BMW and to be able to drive their famous and fabulous historical classic race cars!”
“Almost as exciting as at the race tracks, it is to be part of the ongoing progress of my partners and friends at Neuschwansteiner. In addition to the fantastic champagne-style 0.75l bottle, we have the new Neuschwansteiner 0.33l – as elegant and stylish as the bigger one. Just a perfect refreshment after an exciting race weekend!”
Christian Seitz Founder and CEO of Neuschwansteiner said: “Of course we wish our friend, partner and brand ambassador, H.R.H. Prince Leopold of Bavaria a perfect start into his new racing season and most of all much fun, as we know this is his main motive to keep on racing!”
