Were entered for the Concours D'Elegance in the TR3a on the Friday evening and hoping for another trophy after our win in the 2016 event.

Come and say hello if you are around.

Have a good journey and hopefully bump into you over the weekend - Weather forecast is for 28 degrees from now until well after the event!

Good news.

No need to worry about the roof leaking.

Just overheating...

Also heading down from Somerset. 3 x Maserati, (GT, 4200 and Spyder) and a DB9. Went a couple of years ago and it was excellent fun, especially the rally on the Saturday. The lack of people, ability to wander through the pits, availability of good resturants and proper cars make it a hidden gem.
See all there.

we passed through Angouleme last Saturday on our way from a visit to the Millau Bridge it looks a a lot different when not race weekend there are a lot of road works around town I hope it will be finished in time for the racing, not been to Remparts since 2015 as we were turned down as they said that they had enough converibles so its off our list for a few years that said our car is very common

Do you have to have your car vetted to attend the race? Surely not?

I presume you mean just to go and watch? Then no.

We went in my Alfa Spider with friends in the F430 Spider. We did the Rallye on Saturday & it was fantastic.

A kind member of the Alfa Owners Club sent me this.


The racing was good too. Very sad crashes though inc the fatality.
