Angouleme September 2019

by Robert Neil McLeod

Hi Bernie has asked me to send out the below message to all members of the North West Area.

Hello everyone.

Some of you will already have received an email regarding a repeat of this year’s trip to The Circuit Des Remparts race weekend at Angouléme, incorporating stopping off at various other attractions along the way there and on the way back.

I sent out the email to those who had been this year, and to others who expressed an interest at the October meeting, not thinking that there may be others who were not aware of the event, but would like to come.
So here are some loose details.

First. You don’t have to be in a Spridget. You are welcome in whatever vehicle you choose.

Next. The dates are 5th September to 19th September 2019.
The Outward bound ferry will be the 8.40pm from Portsmouth to Saint-Malo on the 5th and the homeward bound one will be the 10.30 am ferry from Saint-Malo to Portsmouth on the 19th. Some of us have already booked this

If you want to go, the most important thing is to book the Angouléme hotel ASAP, because due to the popularity of the event, the hotel fills up quite quickly.
The preferred hotel, which some of us have already booked, is, Campanile Angouléme Ouest-Saint-Yrieix. and you need to book as follows: Check in 12th September. Check out 16th September.
There are other budget hotels in Angouléme if the Campanile is full, and, although we can still meet up on the relevant days, it would be nice if we could all be in the same hotel.

The rest of the trip, at the moment is still a bit loose, but will probably involve a couple of car related museums and maybe the odd château or two.

The race weekend is of course the main attraction, but everyone is free to do whatever takes their fancy before and after that. You don’t need to feel that you have to do what everyone else is doing.

Anyway, that’s it so far. If you want any more information, please contact me at or on 07905 412265 any time.

Best regards.
Bernie Higginson.
