DES REMPARTS D’ANGOULEME
Calendar: Historic Racing
Mike Bell
Race Official
 
13 Sep 2019 to 15 Sep 2019 06:30 to 17:00
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Location: Angouleme, France

For once not clashing with the Spa 6hrs weekend- but Goodwood Revival instead. Not that it will matter to most fans of the French event, which includes racing on the Sunday around the (closed) town streets.

The official website is not updated for 2019, but the local tourism site has plenty of info. http://www.angouleme-tourisme.co.uk/...s-in-angouleme

(It has an English version if you click on the appropriate flag top right...)

Only a 1 day race event though Mike (I assume.)


So one could run a car at Goodwood, see it damaged beyond immediate repair and still have time to get to an alternative event in time for dinner before racing the next day.


Probably tricky to make dinner if going by road but a private aircraft of some sort should be fine.

Correct.

I’ve not been, but from my understanding the streets are only closed on Sunday. There’s concours and a rally friday and saturday.

You should go Mike.

Had a great trip there a few years ago with young delta who was running Compte deG in the Juniors.

A friend of mine, a TR enthusiast amongst many other motoring interests, had a run there with 2 or 3 others in their Triumphs last year (might have been the year before) and thoroughly enjoyed it. (They stayed on and holidayed for a week afterwards.)

I remember Compte going with his Junior. Every tenther that’s raced there has reported having a great time. Unfortunately this year we’ve got Monza weekend after and Spa6 weekend following that, so no way could make Angouleme as well.....

Just set out early for Monza and take a slightly longer route ...

Stop off at Spa on the way back.

No problem.

Well, no problem if you get across the channel ..
