    surprise GTG: meeting the VUHL05 team.....

    Wednesday 3rd July 2013…..(Part 1)

    A little over a few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the unveiling of a new Super Car, from Mexico! I had been contacted by the brothers and founding members of Vuhl, Iker and Guillermo Echeverria, who were launching this lightweight two seater super car at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, the following week. This particular day was the “soft launch”…


    …the VUHL05, awaiting the unveiling

    It took place at The Royal Automotive Club, London, on this hot and humid day. I had never been to the venue before, so was suitable impressed. Also to top it off, one of my all time racing hero’s, the legend that is Sir Stirling Moss, was also in attendance!


    …the founders, brothers Iker & Guillermo Echiverra and Alberto Chapa introducing the car and being asked a few questions for the press


    …the unveiling takes place





    I had already been informed of the brother passion for Bell & Ross, as a friend of mine Laurent, who had taken the original VUHL press shots, had contacted me saying that he had met this guys whilst photographing the car and noticed their choice of wrist wear! He asked if he could pass on my details to them, of course I happily obliged!


    …my Commando and Iker’s Phantom

    Knowing that Iker wore a Phantom BR03-92 and Guillermo wore a Type Demenier, it was a real surprise when Iker mentioned that most of the team wore B&R!
    Alberto, was wearing his BR01 Turn Co-ordinator, Guillermo Snr his BR03-88 and Alberto’s girlfriend, Janet a white ceramic BRS!


    …a surprising and unexpected group shot!

    I had given the brothers a few “goodies” which were very great fully received and were put to immediate use!


    …the VUHL05 car key, itself is a thing of beauty!


    …I was even lucky enough to sit in the car!


    …the perfect cockpit partner!

    I would like to thank all at the RAC, VUHL05 and indeed Influence Associates for putting on a great event, making it very enjoyable and allowing me to meet some great people….



    …the car finally unveiled.
