French Car Show 2006!

Post by Vanny »


Well now my exams are over I can start sorting out
The French Car show 2006!
Bruntingthorpe - Sunday 28th May 2005
French Car Show

Its the PGAC's BIGGEST event of the year, and we're invited!
I was there in 2003 and it was good, I was there in 2004 and it was brilliant, 2005 was awesome, but 2006 is gonna be VERY different!

For a start there's going to be even more stands from some big name companies, and a mass extension to last years Shopping Village

There's a similar format to last year, with all-day track activity, go-karts and more, but with much more entertainment in the show arena, including a music stage and organised competitions! Not to mention a radical change in the track layout, no more waiting for buses or transfers and everything within walking distance!

With any luck, we'll be in the main camp right up next to the stand shwoing off with pride!

I want this to be our BIGGEST MEET EVER!

I've got some tricks up my sleeves, there could be some interesting plans taking place and possibly provision of food (if your interested in the food option PM me!) I want to go there and have people remembering all the BX's.

  • Club members (payment before the event) @ £12.50 per person!
Must be paid for before 30th of April to get these prices!
I will release payment details shortly, and note you will recieve the tickets approximately two weeks before the show!

Well in order to get a BIG, HUGE Club Stand, I need to know if your coming!

If you are, then let me know!
I need to know;
  • If you are bringing your BX (or plan to!)
  • How many tickets you would like (you never know SWMBO might join us!)
Please send cheque payments to;
Details TBA

So if your interested just let me know here![/url]

And me - unless I go to the Club Planete BX meet at Dornes which is the same weekend. I will let you know.

If I do come I'll be happy to organise a BBQ on the stand.

It all sounds a bit "boy racer" for us 2CV folk (now I don't have a BX anymore! :cry: ).

Unless there could be a 602cc or less session on the track!

why did it come up guest 2 times i am signed in??? rob-bx16v

Jon says, when I set this new part of the forum up, I forgot to apply the usual permissions, which generally mean that only logged in, registered users can post. I have now fixed that, sorry. Can offer no explanation as to why it thought you were a Guest, sorry. It can't happen again now, I fixed it.

Count me in

Post by paraglidingferrit »

Hi there,

I have a slow diesel BX which will be roadworthy by the time of this show. It looks good but would it still be ok to count me in as I do love these cars.

I would like to be counted in to this event, I am only a newbie so be gentle!
