    Hi Don,

    Last year's event was awesome - the weather certainly helped and it was very popular with the Hunter-based Peugeot owners in particular. Unfortunately there wasn't too many Cits but plenty of Pugs and Renaults.

    The Peugeot Car Club calendar is pretty clear in August but I'm not sure about the CitroŽn Car Club one.
    Regards,

    Simon

    Just realised the CMC's Sydney Classic (Eastern Creek Classic) is on 17 August. This is a big event for the three clubs, so that's probably not suitable.

    I guess the last weekend (31 August) is probably the best bet, Don.

    Hi Don,

    Will the restaurant be open for dinner on Sunday night?

    This may have a bearing on whether people stay overnight.


    thanks

    Hey all
    Update on the Hunter French car day.

    We now have Gosford Euro Cars bringing the peugeot representation.
    So there will be new model renault peugeot and citroen cars on display.

    Now it would be great to have some beautiful classic D series attend as well as the early peugeots and renaults.
