    Default Ross, Tasmania - Sunday 19 May

    What is, in my opinion, Tasmania's best car meet, "Picnic at Ross", will be held at Ross (halfway between Launceston & Hobart) on Sunday 19 May from about 9 AM.
    It's not just, or even much at all, for French cars (although the French Car Club of Tasmania will attend as a club, as might the bewilderingly distinct Citroen club) but for anyone in Tassie with a general interest in cars, it is a very nice range of interesting stuff. Last year had around 800 vehicles, one of which was my Djet (this year I'll take the 4CVG).

    cheers! Peter

    Not are bad day. Around 1000 cars but a generally less interesting mix than last year & the event lost something by having its venue shifted from the streets & adjoining paddocks of Ross to a Football oval a few blocks from the main street.
    One brilliant vehicle made the trip worthwhile. A glorious conversion of a Fiat 500 with a mid-mounted 1.7 Alfa 33 flat four. Sorry, no pics (I haven't done cameras since using a box Brownie as a 14 year old). Perhaps someone else here who went could oblige.
    Only off note was the use of appalling Roadstone tyres; perhaps he doesn't drive it in the wet.
    cheers! Peter
