German Nationals with over 80 participants

On November 4th, the EMMA community in Bad Salzuflen celebrated their passion for the last time this season and crowned this year’s champions. In addition to the determination of the best competition vehicles according to EMMA regulations, the AYA also offered vehicle evaluation and awarding according to its rules. Audience, participants and jurors spent a smooth event day under the roof of the Bad Salzufler Messe – also thanks to the generous support of the sponsoring partners ESX and Musway.

For an autumnal Saturday, Hall 22 became a hot spot for car media enthusiasts in Germany. Participants and guests from England, the Netherlands, Slovakia, Austria, Poland, Croatia, and Denmark also joined the rendezvous of the season’s best from EMMA and AYA and enriched the wide range of sound mobiles. More than 100 vehicles covered every conceivable audio and multimedia concept. From invisible high-end sound integration to colorful, and loud masterpieces, everything the heart could wish for was offered.

However, this cross-generational enthusiasm also kept the EMMA jury team on their toes – after all, all vehicles in the sound quality sector had to be evaluated by experienced international judges. The joint open end with the AYA with a cozy evening event including award ceremonies relaxed the evaluation workload enormously. At the award ceremony, some surprise results caused excitement and enthusiasm. This year’s champion cars and runners-up will take part at the coming Eurofinals in April 24 in Salzburg.

Even though Automechanika will once again be held in Frankfurt am Main for the finale in 2024, a repeat of this successful event on the edge of the Teutoburg Forest cannot be ruled out. A big thank you goes to the sponsors and to the friends of AYA for the successful cooperation.
