    Default French Car Day this coming Sunday

    Somehow this event has missed out on being publicised on this forum. It is to be held Sunday the 1st of October at Macleay Park Balwyn North. This is a great venue, plenty of space and always a good day out. Your car doesn't have to be concours standard being there is the important thing.

    Daylight savings begins at 2:00am Sun, so don't forget to set your clocks forward by one hour.

    Weather looks good-17C.

    Default French Car Festival, Balwyn Sunday 1 October

    The French Car Festival is on again on 1st October at Buchanan Oval in the Macleay
    Park complex, Balwyn and is being organised this year by PCCV.


    You are encouraged to bring your best French cars, bring your nick knacks,
    your Michelin Man, perhaps a Tour de France uniform and bike, and
    wear your best French gear.


    Spectators and cars will gather on the oval at about 10:00. We will be open from
    08:30 and judging will be complete at 13:00 with the awards being presented
    at 14:30. Entry for cars will be $10. Yes the entry fee has gone up but so have all
    the costs! Collectors with a stable of cars will pay only for a maximum of two cars
    provided all cars are presented together and a collector’s corner will be available.


    We expect about 200 cars so there will be plenty to see and discuss. Best of marque
    awards will be made for Peugeot, Renault, Citroen, Alpine and Simca. Also there will
    be some further surprise presentations for interesting vehicles not covered in the main
    awards.


    Catering will be available, there is a playground adjacent to the display area with
    extensive equipment for your children or grand children and there are also barbecues
    available near the play area.


    Access is by the main entry of the Macleay Park complex from Belmore Road.


    Approach from the city direction will make the entry an easy left turn. (Melway 46 C5)


    If you have any questions please call Peter Kerr on 9890 1816 or mob. 0408 504 605


    See you there!

    If you intend to trailer a car, I found last time it's better to come from the Balwyn Rd direction.
