As you may (or may not!) know the 2012 S Club Euro Tour visited the Spa Classic. In 2013 the TVRCC will be making it a big event for the club. Several people from this forum have already mentioned going back so I have emailed those that went this year to see who's up for it.

So far Han, PompeyTim, Maffe & Dave M have said they will be there (although Dave may be in his Cerb) and some of the ex S owners from this year's trip (Mr Plow, Gozzy & Clive F) have also confirmed they'll be attending.

It'll be great to see some more S's in amongst the newer models that normally attend these events wink

Cheers,
L'rs

I don't what other cars are booked, there may be some more S's amongst them but I doubt it. As for a Taimar... it would be great to see it there Mike yes

Just in case anyone else has the same question someone has just sent to me by email... no, the Spa Classic is not the 2013 S Club Euro Tour. I'm hoping to finalise plans for that in the next 6-8 weeks. It will be a return to a driving based tour, rather than being centered around a race meeting, likely to be mid July somewhere on the other side of The Channel and following the usual format of 4 nights / 5 days. I'll start a forum topic to see who is interested in due course wink

To answer another question... I'll not be doing the extra bit through the Ardennes in 2013 but heading straight to Spa on the Friday / returning Monday. This will make sure I have enough holiday to do the S Tour as well smile

Hi Maffe

Sorry, I must have mis-read your email, I thought you wanted to bring your dad to Spa. No worries, we'll see you on the Euro Tour instead wink

Hello,

I am a recent addition to S ownership. I picked up an immaculate S3 from a member on here.

I am more than up for the Euro Tour, what dates are we looking at?

Correct, there will be 2 parking/display areas available in the Clubs Enslosure - 1 dedicated to TVRs and 1 for other makes/models. Plus there will be the regular "external" parking for cars which do not qualify for the Clus area.

Not yet, but it will be soon now that the final prices have been confirmed and the TVRCC office have all the info they need wink

50+ cars already booked biggrin

Just out of interest, and I'm sure the answer is probably a "no, not really", but is there a particular "pace" that drivers generally keep to when driving to the events? I mean I am assuming that there's a loose "convoy" scenario that's played out allbeit with no hard and fast rules, but that's just a guess...

Presumably some guys will shoot off and enjoy the speed, others will pootle along enjoying the scenery and some will be in the middle - is that a correct assumption?

its at any pace you like, we may all leave the hotel car park at the same time in the morning, but after we`ve split into several groups all taking different exits off the first roundabouthehe you find you`ll end up in a group of up to 5 to 10 cars and you all look out for eachother if one falls behind ect.

you may have to put your foot down if you are behind Han thoughrofl
