    Dear Members, dear friends of the SMAC,

    discussions about the Euro and Europe, wondering if

    Greece or Spain would drown or could be saved, scandals

    in leading banks worldwide, randy Sandy, forward-looking

    US-elections and much more, have made 2012 another

    weird year, about to be forgotten, as the new year and tons

    of new experiences and adventures are coming up. The Club

    has been marching on just fine, thank you. After the

    snow-and-ice trackday in January, a wonderfully instruc-

    tive and funny meeting, in May we met at the lavish

    Concorso d'Eleganza on Lake Como; always a genuine

    highlight for every decent connoisseur. The first summer

    weekend lead us over beautiful passes, from St. Moritz

    to Vaduz, to Dr. Seeger's mouthwatering Rolls-Royce

    collection. Mind you, not only his delectable cars were

    mouthwatering, but also the delicious lunch we were offered

    amongst this stupendous collection of flying ladies. All in all

    a formidable and beautifully harmonious weekend which

    ended in the romantic Bellavista. Che bella vista ! September

    took us to Lord March's stunningly beautiful Goodwood

    Revival in the south of England. The sheer quality of racing-

    cars from all over, competing or just resting in the lawn, is

    enough to drop everyone's jaw. Our group was expertly

    guided by our Vicepresident, Gian Luigi Cavalli, and gene-

    rously sponsored by The Berenberg Bank, in whose lounge

    we were to enjoy the various races. Great stuff ! Our special

    thanks go to Andreas Brodtmann and Lord March for their

    splendid gesture and organisation.

    Our monthly get-togethers always offer wonderful oppor-

    tunities to meet old and new friends. Knowing that many of

    you have scintillating ideas, I would like to invite you to let

    us know. Fresh input is always greatly appreciated to make

    the St. Moritz Automobile Club a melting pot for old- and

    youngtimers (the cars.), and a pleasant meeting point for

    Members and friends.

    Cheers to the New Year !
