Day 1: Mercedes-Benz Intouro, Tourismo, Citaro G, Sprinter Travel, Sprinter Transfer and Sprinter City – the main protagonists await fully fuelled and freshly polished in Toulouse. At the starting point in the regional capital, the aim for the nine days ahead is clearly defined: the protagonists will be portraited, put into words, photographed and filmed against the backdrop of the beautiful Midi-Pyrenees in southern France. And at the centre of the action are ten members of the Mercedes-Benz Omnibus DriverClub, who are able to witness this sophisticated production at first hand – and are also the hidden stars of the production as drivers of the buses. “More strenuous than we thought. Yes, much more strenuous!” Maik Sahlke from Naumburg (Hesse) comments during the one-week production period. As well he might: as captivating as the results of the ongoing filming, photoshoots and research might be, the planning and execution are just as intensive.
