X-Rally 2017

Post by Philip Chidlow » Thu Dec 01, 2016 12:52 pm

Hi all,

The first main rally of 2017 will be the X-Rally - once again being held at Burghley House, http://www.burghley.co.uk , on Sunday the 23rd April this time. Booking slots were a little tight for this and even tighter for an alternative venue option we had in mind... so for better or for worse it clashes with Drive Your Classic Day. Sort of fits really!

If you are on FB join the Citroen Car Club (UK) group page and check out the events on there. Here's a short cut: https://www.facebook.com/events/362199437473556
• COMING SOON... 1992 Citroen BX TZD Turbo Hurricane
• COMING SOON... 1998 Citroen Xantia 2.0 16v auto Exclusive
• Xsara Picasso 1.6 16v
and some Ford tat lol

I'll be there and this time I'll be in the Aubergine since she missed every show of 2016 due to being off the road/waiting for work to be done.

As things stand I'll probably be there in the AX GT, if I go. It's a very long way from my front door!

But then they all are....

Hoping to be there, if so will be the GT's second X-Rally appearance and will mark her first full year on the road since the early naughties! Will also be a good run and test after all the work that will be done soon.

Will there be many challenge-goers going?

Damn, I've got to go to a christening that weekend now! Might be able to pop in on the way back, dependent upon time.

Hope you all have fun!

Really looking forward to this, just hoping the garage gets my 16v back on the road in time! Are there anymore details yet?
