“AN UNFORGETTABLE DAY WITH THE WORLD’S MOST INTRIGUING PORSCHE MAN ALIVE “
Hamburg 2 September 2017, I scheduled a meeting with Dr. Erik Brandenburg. Erik has already won several trophies in the Camel and Marlboro-Race and I just wanted to surprise him with a beautiful painting of his ‘Safari 911’.
Before I left home, I read some stories about the man on the internet, so I hoped to be prepared a little bit for our appointment…boy oh boy I couldn’t imagine I was about to have the most amazing experience in my life, with a very nice guy. A day not to forget!
“… Live life to the full – now! … You have to live now, full speed: life could end tomorrow…”
I just arrived at his amazing museum and before I knew it, I meet Hector, his African eagle.
Before I could decide if I wanted to approach him closer, this amazing bird was sitting on my hand! That was so cool!!
Erik then told me to get in one of his hand built offroad Porsches. Within seconds he showed me what it was capable of and he drove directly into a tough kerb marking the footpath. No damage done to the steering or the suspension.
“I looked behind me and said ‘Erik I think we lost 1 car’…he said…AWESOME!!! “
During our offroad adventure one of the cars was a little to enthusiastic and got drained in the water, no where to go. But with a strong winch mounted to the front of the Safari 911 it was a matter of minutes before the car was back on safe grounds.
“Christophorus picture done Tanja Stadnic style”
In edition 382 of Christophorus Dr. Erik was featuring the front cover. However I could not leave Hamburg without creating my own version of this amazing picture!
Erik parked his car in the water, carried me of my feed, on top of the car… high heels on!
All together it was an amazing experience and I just wanted to give Erik and his friends a big hug! We said good bye, he took his bird Hektor in his car and left home! Unforgettable memories of an amazing guy, living his life to the maximum. LOVE IT!!
