    Default Simca aussie trek

    It’s on! ………… the Simca “Aussie Trek” is happening with the cars leaving Adelaide on the 26th October 2011 for a fourteen day drive across the Nullarbor and the South West of WA reaching Mandurah for a week of Simca activities from 9 – 16 October. This will possibly be the first and last time that such a number of Simca’s will cross the country.

    If you own a French car and always wanted to tackle the Nullarbor you would be welcome to tag along providing your car is well serviced and in good mechanical order (tight schedule doesn’t allow for major breakdown). You would be welcome to join in the week of events with the Simca group in Mandurah, but with the understanding that you would make your own accommodation arrangements etc. (can offer recommendations). With the older cars there is always safety in numbers when travelling a distance.

    The Simca Car Club Australia would not take any responsibility for non-members.

    Hi John, sounds like a great adventure and I look forward to welcoming the Simcaites to WA! (or is it Simcverts?)

    I believe they are also on track to join this years Perth French Car Festival which will be a very special moment for Simca in WA. Can't wait! All the best in the planning.

    Justin,
    The correct term is "Simcaphile". This is both grammatically and/or historically correct.

    Although used by many the term Simcaites would have to be the most clumsiest of names to pronounce. If it has to be used put a hyphen between Simca and ites... Simca-ites.

    Great! Gives me just enough time to buy a Simca-Abarth in preparation.

    What time do you guys assemble/leave Adelaide, I'd love to have a look at the cars.
