Following the program, Friday afternoon was time of arrival, greetings and friend reencounters around a good dinner, not very long because next day’s schedule would be intense.

So on Saturday morning and after a briefing our Saab motorcade started a 180km route through the mountains that surround Madrid driving on winding roads through breathtaking landscapes in a splendid day of sun and heat.

The tour included a stop at Arrebatacapas port (1068m) where we recovered energy with typical spanish meat pies while we enjoyed the landscape and study the way back to Madrid, stopping at typical mountain restaurant to enjoy a generous lunch on the outside terrace, commenting about the beauty of the route and how our Saabs love mountain roads.

After lunch we returned to the meeting base hotel to celebrate and renew the directors’ board, and let our machines rest in parking to boarding an (Scania, of course) coach that was waiting to take us to Madrid’s historical center , where a private guide showed us the best of this historical and monumental city for two hours.

The cultural reward of the visit was also prized in form of amazing tapas dinner, the best possible way to finish the day. On Sunday morning the saabist who came from far points of Spain had to say goodbye and start their returning trip. For the rest, the organization had prepared an exhibition of twelve Saabs models especially highlighted in the history of the brand .

the authorGoran Aničić
For over 10 years, Goran Aničić has been passionately focused on Saab automobiles and everything related to them. His initial encounter with Saab cars took place back in 2003 when the first Saab 9-3 and sedan version were introduced. At that moment, he was captivated by the car's Scandinavian design logic and top-notch engineering, and everything that followed stemmed from that first encounter. Later on, through his work at the editorial team of the Serbian automotive magazines "Autostart" and later "AutoBild," he had the opportunity to engage more closely with Saab vehicles. In 2008, he tested the latest Saab cars of that time, such as the Saab 9-3 TTiD Aero and Saab 9-3 Turbo X. In 2010, as the sole blogger from the region, he participated in the Saab 9-5ng presentation in Trollhättan, Sweden. Alongside journalists from around the world, he got a firsthand experience of the pinnacle of technological offerings from Saab at that time. Currently, Goran owns two Saabs: a 2008 Saab 9-3 Vector Sportcombi with a manual transmission, and a Saab 9-3 Aero Griffin Sport Sedan from the last generation, which rolled off the production line in Trollhättan in December 2011.
