    Default Canberra French Car Day 1 November 2014

    Hi all

    Its on again. The Canberra French Car Day will be held on Saturday 1 November 2014 from 2.30pm to 7pm at Telopea Park School. it is being held in conjunction with the school's fete. The school is located at New South Wales Crescent, Barton, ACT and the entrance will be clearly signposted at the Telopea Park side of the school grounds. Entry is free.

    Trophies donated by Shannons will be awarded by popular vote to the owners of the best Renault, best Citroen, best Peugeot, best modern French car and best French car on the day. A trophy for best modern is a new one recognising that newer French cars are also part of the show.

    The fete is a large affair with plenty of drinks and delicious food available along with other activities such as rides for the kids and a giant raffle with a trip to Paris for two plus spending money usually the first prize. Many other raffle prizes will be available and the draw of the main ten prizes takes place before the show is over.

    Day started off a bit ordinary with rain early but cleared to a nice day for the twilight fete at Telopea Park School with 28 French cars plus 2 late comers attending the Canberra French Car Day. Great to see visitors from Sydney and surrounds including Dominic Robert, Murray and Julie Low, Bob Billiards and Ben Emmelkamp. In fact, the northern invaders were able to scoop most of the trophies on offer with Dom winning best modern French car with his Megane Trophy 808, Bob best classic Renault with his R8G, and Ben for best classic Pug. Other winners were Michael Lawrence-Slater for best classic Citroen with his 2CV and yours truly for best French car outright with my A110. A big thanks to Lisa for recording the entries, organising the voting and vote count. Some photos of the day follow:
