A while back I stumbled across an article somewhere about a classic car event in France (I think) where during one of the days cars drive through the streets. It looked lovely too, narrow streets and town squares, place with some history. I know it's not much to go on but does it ring any bells with anyone please ? Obvs thinking 2021.

Or perhaps Laon in May. Another brilliant event. Some 800 cars entered, I really enjoyed it last year.

The Rally Des Jonquilles is also worth a look (and it takes place in Northern France, so easily accessible). Unfortunately cancelled this year for obvious reasons.

Quite a few PH'ers have taken part, and I would estimate that at least 25% of the participants come from the UK. Registrations are limited in number, and cars should be "classic" or "interesting"... smile

I was hoping to make it this year but doesn't look like I'll get to it now... maybe next year!

Not been before but heard great things!

We're all booked up to go - if this Covid-thing starts to behave itself!

The racing weekend in Bressuire is worth considering if you want something low-key.

Laon Historique we used to book with Classic Car Tours based in Dover I think? Used to be a fantastic event!
