Myself and the other organiser of The Interesting Car Club here in Brittany are thinking of holding a classic car weekend in May 2017 in Gouarec, Cotes d'Armor. We are hoping to revive an historical event in the village where all the streets were closed and car related events were put on. The event would centre around the campsite in Gouarec, which is situated beside the Nantes-Brest Canal, so there would be plenty of space for tents, caravans and motor homes. We would be inviting other car clubs in the area, so there should be a good mix of vehicles. There may be a rally with roadbook, if I can persuade some expert friends to do one! In the evening we are thinking of a pig roast/BBQ and music. Would this be an event that members of the 924 Club would be interested in? Geoff, the other ICC organiser is a Lotus/Caterham nut, so intends to invite The Lotus Club from the UK. We must fly the flag for 924s! :party:

Only difficulty I foresee is that we have the National Rally in May...

I'd certainly be interested. I don't attend UK events any more so the national doesn't affect me, but as a Francophile, I'd love to come over date depending. We have a large motorhome, but having said that, I'm certain that Mrs W would insist on bringing the 924 ;)

We are currently looking at the weekend of 17th - 18th June 2017. It is almost impossible to find a weekend that doesn't clash with something! Once we have confirmed the date, I will post details of the event.

Date for The Interesting Car Club Interesting Weekend now confirmed as weekend of 17th - 18th June. Yes, I know it clashes with Le Mans 24hr! As we know its like herding cats trying to get a date that suits everyone. I will post updates as I get them and will share the event to the 924 OC Facebook page.
