Dusty Rides: HEIZR Membership Takes Over A Quarry


‘Get Them Dusty!’ That was the slogan behind an occasion held within the Steinbruch quarry close to Stuttgart a few weekends again. The promise of some superb traditional, and some up to date vehicles in a really distinctive location meant I needed to go and verify ‘Dusty Rides’ out.

My journey began in Prague, very early within the morning. I had an enormous drive forward of me – 460km every approach – from the Czech Republic’s capital metropolis to southwest Germany, however I knew it will be price it. Felix Bauermeister and his HEIZR Membership group all the time placed on nice occasions, and this one was billed as the most important of the 12 months.


The HEIZR Membership is closely concerned within the traditional automotive scene round Stuttgart, however what they obtain resonates proper all through Germany. HEIZR’s mission is to deliver the enjoyment of vehicles to the youthful technology, however as Felix has all the time stated, it’s in regards to the individuals first.


After 5 and half hours behind the wheel of my 94′ Mercedes W140 coupé, I discovered myself within the coolest site visitors jam I’ve ever been as I drove as much as the Dusty Rides venue entrance.


The attractive Porsche 944 in entrance of me and the 993 RS behind made me really feel a little bit misplaced – I used to be in my each day driver in any case – however that thought diminished the moment I parked up. There was a lot to soak up and shoot.


Typically talking, after I attend occasions with comparable vehicles to people who have been on present at Dusty Rides, most of them are introduced in on trailers. This was utterly totally different; most vehicles arrived on the quarry having been pushed to the occasion. It was so refreshing to see.

After all, there are all the time exceptions to the rule, and whenever you’re speaking in regards to the one and solely BMW X5 Le Mans Idea, it’s comprehensible. I’d beforehand solely ever seen photographs of this prototype, so seeing it in particular person was a little bit overwhelming.


As I made my approach across the quarry, nice compositions merely fell into my digital camera’s viewfinder. The warms tones of the environment completely framed among the world’s most important efficiency classics.


The factor that I love essentially the most about HEIZR Membership gatherings is the standard of the vehicles and the folks that deliver them out. Over the previous couple of years, it’s felt just like the scene has began to grow to be divided into niches and intoxicated by the TikTok tradition of tasteless builds. There’s none of that right here.


Felix is connecting individuals round vehicles, and when visiting a HEIZR Membership occasion, you possibly can make sure that you’ll be welcomed in any traditional automotive or construct that you just arrive with. At Dusty Rides, I witnessed Porsche homeowners joking with stance guys, purists mingling with modified BMW homeowners, and Mopar guys speaking about Japanese vehicles with curiosity. How nice is that?!


There have been no donuts or useless revving, and nobody drove like a madman to the occasion. I feel that everybody who attended was tuned to the identical word of constructing the automotive scene higher.


Throughout my lengthy drive house, I had loads of time to consider utilizing my W140 coupé extra typically, and in addition what I might personally do to steer my native automotive group in an analogous path to what Felix and the HEIZR Membership are attaining.
