    Plan is to use business carpark (Slough Avenue is back up).

    Good directions in your above attachment.

    No one knows how long the tyre kicking might last on Sunday. 2:00pm???

    It would be good to meet a RCZ owner.

    I'll endeavour to make it out. I can't bring any of the French cars, so it will be the Mazdarati.

    hehe, Here are a few photos before the heavens opened! Not sure what happened with the exposure, but better than nothing.

    A good turnout for such a low profile event; nice to see the CitroŽns well represented.

    Two 205s
    Two Fuegos
    One 306
    One 007
    One 605
    One Mazdarati

    Clutch cable holder snapped just after i left.. No clutch
    Bumper to bumper first gear much of the way
    Made it home..... To sheer devastation.
    Trees down... Branches every where. No apparent property damage

    That's a bummer Jo! Is it like the 306's a plastic fitting where it connects to the clutch pedal? Don't envy you driving all that way with no clutch! Bright side is if you had have been home maybe the car would have been damaged, so perhaps a good thing you came along! Sorry Stalled, I missed the mazdarati in the photos actually I think I can see the corner of it behind my car in one of the shots.

    Not a bad roll up.

    Pity about the rain.

    Don't forget next month's Tyre Kicking.


    Addo you may be able to bring a Citroen or a Simca.

    Smart ar*e!

    Sorry I could not make it. Had to work.

    I see your recipe for success... make the meeting later! Clearly the Narrabeen event was too early for Pugs and Renos... that is why we got zero Peugeot or Renault, but seven Citroen at Narrabeen.
    1x 2cv, 3x DS, 1x GS, 1x XM, 1 x Xantia.

    Hope you get a better balance next time. Congratulations on a good turnout .

    Actually, considering it was 100% free apart from petrol/diesel, I was expecting it to be awash with CitroŽn owners.

    More seriously, the way it specifically didn't require forward commitment could be part of the reasons for how it turned out.

    The 200km round trip to attend is my excuse.

    More northerly and I'd be very keen.

    Alas the distance problem can not be solved.


    How about the formation of a Novacastrian and Northern Chapter of "The French Car Owners Monthly Tyre Kicking Day"?

    Nice work guys - love a good tyre kicking, especially the French variety. I would have loved to make it but drove my 205 for the first time in six weeks on Friday and went for a good long weekend away. Keen for the next one though...

    Default French car owners monthly tyre kicking day

    "FRENCH CAR OWNERS MONTHLY TYRE KICKING DAY"

    It is understood that this event is to be added to the Peugeot Car Club of NSW Inc, calendar!
    (Check your April Pugilist first).

    This means that PCC club plated cars may attend
    (along with the rules and usual advises to the club registrar ect.).

    A good regular run for the old car and a chance to blow out the cobwebs and tell people how fast it used to be (and may be a chance to wipe the oil up off the garage floor).


    Would be great to see other French car clubs follow and add the event to their calendars.

    BIGRR,

    Will next month's Tyre kicking be on Easter Sunday (20th - the third Sunday of the month) or an alternate date?

    Yes next month's "Tyre kicking" will be on Easter Sunday 20th April, if we swap Sundays it will only clash with something else.

    Happy with the KISS principle.

    Not all French car owners are driving to Queensland (There is always Sunday 18th May).

    There is NO quorum required for "French car owners monthly tyre kicking day".

    If people are not doing anything Easter Sunday then they are welcome attend.
