Trip to France 2018

Hi All.

Bernie has asked me to forward on to you all ,  Info on a trip to Circuit Des Ramparts in Angouleme 2018 he has been looking into,


The Circuit Des Ramparts in Angouleme France takes place over the weekend Friday 14th September to Sunday 16th September 2018.

The original idea to do this trip came from Graham and Val Danson, but as Graham is working in the week, I thought I might help out with a bit of research.

The thought is to get into France via the overnight ferry on Monday 10th Sept, motor down to just outside Tours and stay at La Marechalerie with Danny and Patricia on Tuesday Wednesday and Thursday on a B&B basis, during which time we could visit some of the Chateaux of the Loire valley.

On Friday 14th drive to Angouleme for the race weekend, then on Monday 17th drive to the West coast for a couple of days, then come home via St Malo.

All this is at the moment just an email to find out who would be interested in doing it, so if you can have a think and let me know at October’s meeting if you fancy it, we can take it from there.

The only fairly urgent thing is booking accomodation in Angouleme as it fills up quickly for race weekend. (Alan Anstead has recommended a place he has used ).

Up to now, definites are Lynne and me and Graham and Val and I think Alan Oakes is up for it.

So, have a think and I’ll see you on the 11th October at the meeting.

Best regards.
