French Trip Anyone ?

A few weeks ago you heard me mention that Gary Head from the MBC61 club in France was looking to organise an international meeting for those want a European trip this season and not doing the Euros.

Gary has since spoken to the racers in France and they are keen to undertake an international battle across the three race classes, 2WD, 4WD and short course, over the weekend of the 25/27th October..

The proposed timetable would be :-

Friday 25th – Free Practice

Saturday 26th – Formal Practice\Qualification

Sunday 27th – Finals & Trophies

Aim to finish about 5pm for trip back to the UK

If anyone is interested then please contact Gary directly so arrangements can be made. He says there is plenty of room trackside for camping and motorhomes and those who like a bit of comfort their are a few motels local too.

I understand the most direct route to the MBC 61 venue is via ferry from Portsmouth into the port of Caen and then a quick 50 mile drive to the track. Details on the club are available here

For those not doing a Euros and want to do a quick overseas hop then I’m sure Gary will lay on a first class event for those attending.
