Congratulations Wilhelm.

Always nice to win, but when 3 of you fight it out for most of the competition, even better.
And you have beaten a very good set of entrants.

Enjoy your prize.

Congratulations, Wilhelm on a great car and great picture! It's been an exciting two weeks in which we swapped position sometimes several times in one day. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. I looked it up and I want to go to the Transfagarasan Pass someday.

Indeed, it was a very close shot, and these two weeks really kept my heart beating, especially when seeing that it was much like a ping-pong game:
whenever I got ahead, you caught up - whenever you got ahead, I caught up.
And it really was a matter of 1 vote difference, throughout the whole two weeks!

Guess the person casting the last vote must've felt really powerful!

From my own experience (this is my 6th or 7th attempt), winning is not a matter of if, but a matter of when.

Thanks to all who voted (regardless of who your choice was)!
