During the AVD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix from 10th to 12th August 2018 on the Grand Prix racing course Nuerburgring, we had the chance for a very special meeting.

We had a date with Number 12. The original JWA GULF racing Porsche 917 K owned by Claudio Roddaro, who enriched this event with this fantastic car. Mr. Roddaro was so kind as to allow us a private photoshooting with his race car and he also found time for an interesting chat.

On our facebook site you can find a short video that allows you to participate on the tremendous sound made by this Porsche 12 cylinder Boxer and the roll out of the car.


Claudio Roddaro is positively “mad“ about the 917 as he owns a further Porsche 917 with the chassis number 037. He could have been on the move for this event in this car as it is approved to be driven in regular street traffic.


Thanks a lot to Claudio Roddaro!


During this event, our GULF sunglasses‘ collection was offered by our partner “Historic World“ on the ring boulevard.

We were excited by the AVD-Oldtimer-Grand-Prix and the audience there and are now thinking about a presentation with our own booth next year. New sunglasses‘ styles are under development already.

At the moment, we are preparing the optical show SILMO in Paris that we will be attending as exhibitor from 28th September to 01st October 2018.

See you there!
