That's good to hear, Iain! The 500's came in 2013 & the racing was superb - the perfect track for them. Were you there then?

Croix is aprox 110km/70m from Calais. Takes me about 75minutes by car. And Gerard is correct, the circuits & locals are very welcoming(me included!°).

Seeing mention of various French circuits reminds me that a couple of years ago I went to have a look at Val de Vienne circuit located between Limoges and Poitier. I didn't have access to look round the whole circuit but it looked quite good from the bit I could see from near the pits. There were some single seaters testing there (Formula Renault perhaps) and a couple of race transporters from a seemingly well financed team. As we were going somewhere I didn't have time to try to gain better access or talk to the teams in Franglais. It's location is lovely being close to the Vienne river.


I never see it mentioned either for historic or contemporary racing.

Really few things to add to what you've said. Right, Limoges, Poitiers and Angoulême are the big cities around. I dont know why and how this track became more motorbikes oriented. Right again, never heard about an international event there.
Historic Tour, our national championship, pays an annual visit though.
October 25-27th, 2019 are the dates. We have a series, Salooncar, hosted by VdeV racing which should accept heavily modified historic, being a kind of Modsports. Yes, few french organisers do speak English, but you all are welcome! The best example might be Alan Morgan and delta who came to Charade.

...and we're going to Pau again next year. We'd love to go to Charade as well but unfortunately it clashes with an HSCC meeting.

Glad to hear that, Alan, you told me you have a good contact with HVM. Sorry for the clash of Charade but may be you can chose another meeting held in France, just have to look to the Historic Tour calendar. May be better than others, you and delta know how much each of your venue in France is appreciated.
Guess you could appear during Historic F1 GP of Magny-Cours?
Sorry, should have said you, delta and your series of course.

Laurent invited us to Magny Cours but it happens to be the same weekend as the HSCC Superprix at Brands Hatch GP. I have told him that I would like to do at least 2 races with HVM in 2020. Albi sounds like a nice place and Le Mans Bugatti would be appealing as well if there is a race there in 2020.

Those are good news, thanks for that. You all know Bugatti and its facilities and how easy it is to reach from England, Albi is rather far away from your location. Coordinate all the calendars seems impossible though.

Of course, all this racing in France will depend on whether us Brits are allowed to travel there after brexit! You may not want anything to do with us.......

I have a feeling there's a thread about that somewhere Mike...

Could we be heading for another "Winter of Discontent" forty years on from the last one?

Happy to see you are with the smile mode on, Mike! I'm nor a boy scout, neither an angel but I think and hope the Brexit won't affect any friendship or any pleasure to share historic racing. Let give us a lesson in this matter. And you won't have to change the steering wheel from right to left

Just out of my curiosity, did you have any feed back after the last coming of CSCC? Are they happy, not so much, will they return…

This is a quote from a post on the CSCC FB page:

"Fog delayed our start again, but we got the full race duration in, with drivers and team heading home with smiles and a top up of tan to boot. Well that's officially the end of the CSCC racing season, what a brilliant way to close a superb year of club motorsport."


And judging from comments from individual competitors, they enjoyed it.... As for whether they'll return - CSCC do like to ring the changes and this is an extract from next year's calendar, as posted earlier:
" October 4-6 - Dijon-Prenois (separate Classic + Modern grids)"

Following on from the apparently successful Classic Alfa Challenge he ran recently at Donington, Julius Thurgood in conjunction with HRDC has released proposals for 2 Trackdays at Goodwood on 5 and 18 March 2019, and a confirmed race at Silverstone on 14 April, with others proposed at Thruxton on 2 June and Castle Combe on 5 October. Races to run to the same format as this year - 15 minute qualy, 30 minute race, and presumably to the same (somewhat vague ) class regs.



The intention is that the Classic Alfa Challenge will be expanded further in 2020, presumably dependent on support.



As one who loves to see older Alfas being used as they should, I wish him well with this series......sadly our 75 V6 is too new to be included.......
