Cadillac Club Denmark is deeply sorry to inform you that the 2017 Grand European has been cancelled due to lack of participating teams.
President Carsten Jacobsen of Cadillac Club Denmark states: “Based on the information we received and historical participation rates in The Netherlands (2013) and Switzerland (2015) we were planning the 2017 Grand European to host approximately 150 teams. At this stage only 30 teams with 20 Cadillacs has signed up despite our recent request to sign up before April 15’Th.”
The board of Cadillac Club Denmark has worked hard to see if it was possible to downsize the Grand European but such a drastic change was simply not possible at this stage. Further, the board of Cadillac Club Denmark was reluctant to commence with so few cars participating.
Carsten Jacobsen explains: “The board agreed that it would not be fair that participants travel across the continent, some even half way around the World, to see 20 Cadillacs. The Grand European should be something extraordinary and spectacular. As much as we would like to go through with the arrangement, the 2017 Grand European would only be a far cry from what was initially planned, so we decided that the only logical decision would be to cancel the event.
We are of course very sorry for the inconvenience this causes for the enthusiasts that already signed up and regret that is has been necessary to take this decision.
As stated on the invitation the teams who have already signed up and paid participation fees will have their money refunded as soon as practically possible.
We kindly ask you to provide your account details (IBAN and SWIFT code) at your earliest convenience.
