It was a sunny late-spring Sunday morning and the street in front of the Union Hotel was busy with chatter, excitement and occasional uproar of a powerful engine. The sound of a V12 engine is always hard to ignore, especially when it is accompanied with burning tires and cheers from the crowd.
It was 21st of May and it was the start of the OneLife Rally across the Balkan countries.
The participants were given the last briefings and instructions how the rally is going to be conducted, where the stops are and what are the rules that govern this rally, which was a no small feat to organize. Participants were, of course, eager to start, to finally turn-on the engines and roam across the Balkans. The selection of cars was immense and there was truly something for every taste. An avid eye could find Lamborghini Huracan, Mercedes CLS63, Porsche Carrera 4S, Aston Martin DBS, Lamborghini Aventador, Bentley Bentaiga to name just a few.
But there was also a white BMW that stood out from the crowd. It was a car that was sponsored by Perles, a Safety car if you will, and which carried all the Perles equipment that was needed for the rally.
Perles polishers did a great job of making sure that the cars were always perfectly maintained.
When it was finally time to go, the five days of thunder began and the cars rode off to Zagreb. They visited Crikvenica, Dubrovnik, Budva, Durres, Skopje and Beograd.
David Brecelj, who represented Perles, stated: “The entire trip was amazing. PERLES brand was very well received during the entire trip, and passerbys were stopping and acknowledging the brand. When we were travelling across Kosovo, we also had the police escort, who were more than happy to receive PERLES hats in exchange.”
The rally was thus a success. See you again next year!
The polishers used in the rally were Angle polisher UP 3142 RE, which have the following characteristics:
