TORONTO TECHSESSION 2016
The Toronto Section held its 5th annual TechSession put on by Mercedes-Benz Canada on April 23rd at their Toronto training facility near Pearson airport. 47 participants attended this event hosted by Arden Nerling, Events Manager of Mercedes-Benz Canada. The presentation of the new technology in the new 2017 C 300 4 Matic coupe and GLE was done by Derrick Tan, Sales Trainer at the Training Academy with the assistance of Rob Takacs, Corporate Sponsorship’s & Event Marketing Project Leader of Mercedes-Benz Canada. These new cars have more computing power than the space shuttle.

M-B Club Tech Session group

Distronic Plus with steering assist was demonstrated, clearly demonstrating the added value of the new technology including the Baumester sound systems,360 degree cameras and radar that looks out to 500 meters to identify risks to the driver as well as Pre-Safe brakes with pedestrian recognition. The Independent Driving Program ADP is already in use in these new cars. We even learned why sub woofers are now in the firewall and not in the doors to provide extra airspace to make them more effective.

The apple and blue berry strudel as well as the pretzels were delivered and the writer admits to eating six of them, plus taking two of them home
Some new members were present as well as many familiar faces that have enjoyed the previous events, including members from the Mercedes-Benz Club of Canada. Harald von Langsdorff, presented the next upcoming year event which is a BBQ at AZIZ body shop in Oshawa when Harald picks up his new refurbished 6.3 sedan. This meeting provided the new members not only to ask questions about the new technology but also to ask existing members about their recent classic car purchases and share information.
Doug Dees reminded everyone about the MBCA draw for a Mercedes-Benz Airstream motor home and $20,000 US cash as the Grand prize. Information is available on the mbca.org website. An update on the history of the ownership of Justin Trudeau’s 300SL roadster was also presented.

George Morita one of the founding members of the Toronto Section 26 years ago was presented with a British Automobile Club grill badge from the 1940’s for his 1949 Bentley sedan .
The warm spring sunshine kept some of the members outside during the break to look at the latest acquisitions of their fellow members and to share stories.
The draws for a a Mercedes-Benz back pack, golf umbrella between presentations resulted in smiling faces and those that didn’t win a grand prize of a back pack received a complimentary Mercedes-Benz key chain that also can hold quarters or can be used as a golf ball marker.
Many thanks to Arden and Mercedes-Benz Canada for their hospitality in hosting this event.

This all adds up to an exhilarating weekend of learning and using the performance aspects of your MB.
