Press release from Stuttgart German Masters

 


 

That was close! Switzerland’s Martin Fuchs won the Mercedes German Master, the second most important class in Stuttgart, by the narrow margin of 46 hundredths of a second. In the three rider jump-off, where Fuchs was joined by the two Germans Hans-Dieter Dreher and Daniel Deußer after they had all posted first round clears, the Swiss went full speed around the course once again faultlessly in the saddle of the 12-year old gelding Tam Tam du Valon (Ogrion Des Champs x Quidam de Revel) to record a time of 33.26 seconds. 

It secured him the winner’s prize of a Mercedes GLC 220 d 4 MATIC worth approximately 65,000 euro. “Yes, I’ve got it, I’ve got it,” screamed Martin Fuchs when, after the lap of honour, he got out of his new car – the first of his career – in front of the hall waving the oversized key.  

Second was local hero “Hansi” Dreher, who in 2013 was the first rider from the state of Baden Württemberg to win the Grand Prix of Stuttgart, on the mare Berlinda (Berlin x Gento) (0/33.72) followed by the Belgium-based Daniel Deußer in the saddle on the nine-year old mare Killer Queen VDM (Eldorado Van De Zeshoek x For Pleasure) (4/34.37). Only the 12 best riders from the two qualifying classes on Thursday and Friday earned themselves the right to contest the Mercedes German Master. The 7,800 crowd in the Hanns-Martin-Schleyer-Halle for the evening session were thrilled to bits by the all-action class – earlier on in the day 3,400 watched the four competitions.  

Mercedes-Benz Sales Director at the Stuttgart dealership Jürgen Walker congratulated Fuchs on his “fabulous winning ride – it was on a knife edge right up until the end.”
