Traction aufgebockt

Courses 2015

Since more than 27 years I am leading maintenance and repair courses in German for Tractionists in Benken ZH near the Rhine Falls in Switzerland. Some years ago I started with courses in English and with advanced courses, which became very popular, especially because of the combination of theoretical and practical elements, paired with many demonstration parts. It is important to know, that it is possible to participate with or without your own car. Participants in the past courses were not only coming from England, but from as far as Japan and Australia. At the evening of the first course day a visit in a wine cellar in Benken will be organized.
Accomodation will be booked on request. For details contact Daniel Eberli.
This year (April 10/11 and May 1/2), the advanced courses will treat the removal and installation of a 4-cylinder Traction engine, both in theory as doing the job in practice, which might be of special interest to you, even if your knowledge of the german language is limited.
A report from the English course of 2013 was printed in the magazine of the Australian Citroën Club. The text file is available on request by email to
Tractionists, being able to follow tutorings in German may also participate in more courses held throughout spring 15 in German language. If there is sufficient interest, additional courses may beconducted in English.
Reports in German from earlier courses can be found on the CTAC website, in the folder “Berichte”.
