    Yes gibgib,

    It is open to all French cars - there will be poms there as well - we were going to take the Lotus (at least it has an SM gearbox ) but plans have changed.

    It was a great day, despite the icy winds. A total of 95 cars and 15 bikes (mostly motorised), of which 35 cars were French. I took my R12 wagon and Peugeot folding bike. We had the tallest ever "Napolean" monitoring the "battle" proceedings, ie president of Canberra Peugeot club. We may have been outnumbered by the Brits on the day, but at least all the major French car manufacturers are still in production and "locally" owned.

    Hi renweave,


    I have posted my pictures of the day here -

    We were in the White Big 15 - 'Daisy'. The trip home with all the mad snow bunnies in their huge 4WDs with non-adjusted headlights, hurtling past us at breakneck speed, was a bit of a nightmare, but the day was great fun.
    Next year we will bring a proper contingent of NSW Cits.

    Hi Paul

    Great collection of photos. Noticed my car, bicycle and myself in a few of them too. The backdrop of Old Parliament House was really good, must remember that for next year when choosing site location. The bright blue skies were deceptive, max was only +9C with windchill factor of probably +2C. But the snow on the Brindabella Mtns does look great!
