The Tatra Register Nederland held their annual meeting in Soesterberg, the Netherlands. Video by Camiel de Leeuw en Romke van Groning.
Organised by some Tatra Freunde International diehards who regretted the fact that the TFI had become neglected, not organising a members’meeting in 2015 and 2016, the Tatra meeting in Mattsee (A) became a highly successful meeting.
The meeting was held in the small city of Mattsee, the place where the TFI was founded. With close to fourty Tatras from seven European countries attending the May 5-8 meeting, several members jumped the wagon and formed a new supervisory board, breathing new life into the club. The rally was contested by two very rare Tatras, both from Czech Republic: a T 77 from Prague and a T 17/31 from Ostrava. Anothrt surprise visit was made by a unrestored T 87 from Germany.
The two-day rally visited the highlight of the Mattsee area, including the city of Salzburg, the KTM works, a locomotive museum and last but not least Ernst Piech’s Fahrtraum Museum, where the grandson of Ferdinand Porsche himself acted as a guide for the visiting Tatra owners.

Early May a Tatra meeting will be organised in Mattsee, Austria. It is held on the well-known traditional Ascension weekend, always claimed and used by the Tatra Freunde International. As the TFI has experienced problems with finding successors in their supervisory board, the (the oldest western-European Tatra Club) club made a neglected impression the last years with no annual meeting held in 2015 and no meeting planned in 2016. To give its members a chance to meet again, some members have taken the initiative to meet again and a meeting was planned in Mattsee, Austria, the place where the TFI was founded in 1975 by Dr. Friedrich Duering http://www.tatraclub.at/ The supervisory board of the TFI has requested the organisation of the meeting to allow a TFI general members to be held to decide whether the TFI should be discontinued or reactivated with a new supervisory board. All initiatives are welcomed.
The 2016 Mattsee meeting has attracted a wide range of Tatras from a T 11 to T 613s. Thirty-five Tatras from not less than seven countries will head for Austria early May. Unique cars like a T 77, a T 17/31 and an Austr0-Tatra will be present.
The TFI has been a very active club in the past, with its last meeting held in 2014 in the Netherlands. Previous meetings were held in Austria, Germany, the Netherlands and the U.K. Als, the TFI participated in the 1987, 1997 and 2007 Vienna-Koprivnice meeting, to celebrate the anniversary of the Tatra factory.

In the past years, dealers and Autostadt showed T 87s. Not this year however. Only Tatras present were a T 613-1 at the Tatra Register Deutschland club stand and a T 613 offered at the Coys auction. Auction results are unknown, however. The traditional Tatra club stand, run by the TFI till 2014 and since then by the TRD, welcomed several Tatra enthusiasts who are always welcome for a drink and a chat.
Though advertised as a car with only 23,445 kilometers on the clock, the meter read 223,445 km! http://autoweek.com/article/auctions/7-cars-watch-coys-techno-classica-auction
But there was more to see of course: Another three-headlamp car: Streamlined 1960 Pininfarina X prototype. More pix: http://www.classic-car.tv/news/article0531/
In the same village where the Tatra Club de Freunde was founded, Mattsee, a Tatra meeting will be organized to honour the founder of the Club der Tatra Freunde (Later TFI), a club that organized meetings for its members between 1976 and 2014,
