Mercedes-Benz Pageant 2013

September 17, 2013

A successful and a record breaking ‘Mercedes-Benz Pageant’ was completed yesterday 15th of September 2013 at the Nelum Pokuna Mahinda Rajapaksa Theatre.

A record of 626 Mercedes-Benz vehicles participated at the event making it probably one of the largest gathering of “Three Pointed Stars” in the entire world.

The event had special activities for kids such as the mini golf, bouncing castle, face painting, mini bowling, pizza making, kids fun rides, magic balloon artist, balloon darts, radio controlled racing cars, and art competitions.

Vehicle models from pre-war era to the Sri Lanka’s automotive icon – SLS AMG, participated in the event from which winners were selected from all the categories.

Best maintained ‘Stars’ from the respective models 201, 202, 123, 124, 126, 114/ 115, 180A, 180 B (220 Ponton),110, 111/112, 108/109, 116, SL Old, 170 S and Pre War categories were judged.  Winners for all the newer models were selected through a raffle draw as the Judges found it too difficult to differentiate them as they are still new.

The event was opened to the public from 10.30 am where a large number of Merc Enthusiasts got the opportunity to witness Mercedes ‘Masterpieces’ from Classics to latest models. Members of the Mercedes-Benz Club of Sri Lanka together with the Management of DIMO participated at the event.!/media/set/?set=a.512654915487859.1073741898.306611659425520&type=3
