Who else than Michel Deman, the famous specialist and passionate of exceptionnal cars could pay a tribute to 1969 ?

Under this cute surname, one can find a real fan of the 1969 car from the movie « Love Bug ». But the main difference is that Juliet is a real GT3 car that will take part to the Total 24 Hours of Spa on July 27-28th. Juliet has succeeded to convince SRO, the organisators of the most famous endurance GT race worldwide, to host her amongst the most famous competitors. The name of her drivers will be known at a later stage …
Juliet wants to pay a tribute to that exceptional year that 1969 has been but she also wants to help children. Therefore, that incredible car will collect funds to support « Viva for life » raised by VivaCité (RTBF) as well as for « Kinderarmoedefonds.bev» in the Dutch speakin part of Belgium.
