It was a very special weekend for Frank Stege-Schilly and his partner Katja Kordon: as winners of the LIQUI MOLY "Best Brand" competition he had chosen and won a trip to Austin including a week's stay in New York as a holiday of a lifetime. The time had finally come on the weekend of April 12. The top brass of motorcycle racing, MotoGP, came to the Circuit of the Americas.
However, let's start from the beginning: as early as a week before the race event the couple was able to experience the many sides of New York and they were thrilled: "our brains are struggling to deal with all the impressions! Great bars and outstanding concerts, an absolute, global melting pot…we could have not asked for a better start to this trip."
From New York the couple then continued onwards to New Orleans and its French Quarter, to experience the next highlight, the French Quarter Open Air Festival. From there the couple finally headed to Austin, Texas: this is the US stop for MotoGP, a racing series LIQUI MOLY is not only supporting on the advertising boards, but also with comprehensive product expertise, as LIQUI MOLY is the exclusive lubricant supplier of the Moto2 and Moto3 categories.
As the icing on the cake the winning couple experienced a perfect racing weekend by the Dynavolt IntactGP team which is sponsored by LIQUI MOLY.
Frank Stege-Schilly: "this is the best and greatest trip we have ever experienced as a couple. Meeting the entire team is Austin was just wonderful! Everyone was so welcoming and took such good care of us. We immediately felt like a part of the team.
From amazing hotel to exciting shuttle service to the track including welcome gift, catering in the executive box. It was all topped off by the visit to pit lane and access to the racing track for the drivers' line-up on Sunday. My dreams came true! And then the team finished as a one-two! Maybe we were their little German lucky charms?!
I have been following motorsports for almost 40 years and have visited some racetracks in my time, but I'll certainly be telling my grandchildren about this trip". My partner Kati was baffled by what we experienced. Thank you very much for this unforgettable experience!
We can look forward to two more trip reviews as we also invited two lucky winners to the races in Malaysia and at Sachsenring...
