Planning to come along in the BX as, by then all the planned work bar the paintwork should've been done so it'll be a good opportunity for a long test drive!

I wonder if the weathers nice would anyone be able to help me work out how best to fit the CB equipment :)

Here's the official X-Rally flyer for this year (although I will be producing a Xantia/XM variant so as not to be accused of favoritism). As per last year, a concourse event will award trophies/medals/certificates for best CX, BX, XM, Xantia, overall best of show and - the much coveted - 'Shed of the Show'.

With any luck the weather will be as marvelously spring-like as it has been in previous years helping to get the rally season off to a really great start. I hope as many people, and their cars, as possible will be able to come along and continue to make the X-Rally such an enjoyable and much anticipated event - see you there!

For anyone that's interested, Barry Annells has very kindly offered to open up shop over at Bourne Citroen in order to host a technical day on Saturday 25th. This has started to become a regular fixture at X-Rally weekend and anyone that has attended in previous years will know what a useful and enjoyable day this is; free tea/coffee/biscuits/chat/technical advice/mucking about with cars and sunshine (hopefully) - what more do you want? :D

I think Phil is creating an event on the CCC and BXC Facebook pages. I'll also post on FCF, XMF and the CCC forums.

There was camping available last year at a camp site quite close to Barry's but I 'm not sure if that will be available this year. I'll find out.

This still feels like an incredibly long way away.
