    French Car Day SA October 12th National Motor Museum Birdwood

    Club Automobile Francais' invites all French Car enthusiasts to participate in the bi-annual French Car Day at the National Motor Museum. The Museum is located in Birdwood South Australia, located in the picturesque Adelaide Hills, just 45 minutes from the Adelaide CBD.

    Participants will start their journey from Pit straight of the Clipsal 500 race track (and F1), flagged away by Glen Dix, from the Adelaide Formula 1 Grand Prix era.

    AS part of the event, you will also have the opportunity to visit the magnificent Museum and see the collection of motor vehicles and motor bikes, from all over the world, not to mention the 150 vehicles that are anticipated at the French Car Day 2003.

    Club Automobile Francais' will open a display of three Club Cars in the Museum. The cars will be on display for three months.

    There are five categories the Best Renault, the Best Peugeot, the best Citroen the best 'Other French' car, the most popular car.

    On the day the cars will be displayed in decades similar to the Victorian French car day.

    Pre 1950, 1951-1970, 1971- 1980, 1981-1990, 1991- to present day. Look forward to seeing you all there.
    Cheers

    Rod is that awards foreach decade as in best 1970 s renault or just best renault overall.
    In my opion an i have asked a few others maybe you should have best 70 s renault citron etc. the reason being is that aalthough we like the show you do like to think you have chance of winnig a prize. And maybe have a sporting prize which we have had at prvious afcd you cannot have rob lees alpine up against my 12 so please think about this and take it onbaord the expense may be a little more but it makes people a lot happier and more willingto come to your shows and be invloved. Having ben on committes it isnt fair to most poeple that yopu can have a sporty car up againts a standard car
    And yes i will see u there thanks daniel sporting secretary of rccv.

    Hi our philosphy is to keep it simple and just have one prize for each of the main marques. Our perspective is the fun is in the participation. The voting is a peoples choice and I guess people may consider the A110 as a the most popular car rather than the best Renault. I would consider a really nice Dauphine Gordini in some peoples eyes would be more appealling than a A110. The idea of a sporting prize has merit. Cheers see you all there.
    Cheers

    I understand your philoshapy is too keep it simple howver it isnt complicated to have have awrds for each brand for each decade as how can people compare eg a 1771 renault 12 against a 2002 clio sport or there is too many differing factors invloved eg model recogntion and not even in the same class . yes have an overall best of each marque .but give people incentive to come to your show as it is only biannual not annual like our afcd . please consider this thankyou daniel

    Daniel,
    Good to see that you are coming.
    The CAF is having a long term display set up inside the Birdwood Mill Museum (October 12 till January 2004) featuring a Facel Vega, a Peugeot 404 and my R8 Gordini. The major theme of the display is celebrating 40 years since the R8 won the inaugural Car of the Year award. We will have a few rare magazines, brochures and other documents 7 mementos featuring the R8 and the R8 Gordini.
    For the actual French Car Day, I'm not sure if I'll take the Alpine, so maybe the Fuego will get a bit of spit & polish.

    See you there

    Robert
