    Icon6 Battle of Waterloo Display & D-Day

    Battle of Waterloo Display & D-Day

    The Battle of Waterloo Display in Canberra is on SUNDAY 19th June at Reconciliation Place, King Edward Terrace, (between Old Parliament House and the lake) from 10am-3pm. As it coincides with the CitroŽn Car Club's annual D-Day run, we have decided to have a special run to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the D.

    A group of us will be going down early on Saturday morning to get to Canberra for brunch around 10.30 (time TBC) at Tilley's Devine Cafe Gallery, Cnr Brigalow & Wattle Sts Lyneham ACT 2602 ph: (02) 6247 7753. On Saturday afternoon there will be a run around ACT and surrounds for all wishing to attend.

    PM me if you are interested in coming along.

    Paul

    So far in the Saturday convoy we have about 6-8 cars, plus several others coming on Sunday - there will probably be others, as quite a few people said they would come down on Sunday for the day. In all I would say at least a dozen, maybe more.

    There's going to be a few new MINIs reprazenting at this show, hope to see a good mix of old and nu skool Aussie Frogs in attendance.

    Oh, not sure if you've done this already, but if you want to get a booth at Tilleys for Saturday at that time you'd better make a booking. Getting tables inside at this time of year is hard work.

    Good luck, drive safely, have fun and I might see you on Sunday.



    Cheers Liam

    Default British Show True Colours

    Frogs 10 - Poms 0

    What a stalwart display by the French Marques .. .. the other side
    were too afraid to expose the dreaded Lucas electrics to a bit of Canberra drizzle.

    Yes, The French won this year's event. ~45 French cars (~20 Pugs and ~20 Cits plus 6 Renaults) and less than 20 British cars.

    Great display of 14 D series Citroens, celebrating their 50th year in 2005.

    Came out for a looksie but the 405 SRBT stayed on the other side of the road as it was needed for movie going service at 1pm. Shame the CX has currently run out of Rego as it would have been the only one there. My son decided that a fuego may be a good choice of car for him, and it was great to see the Gordini - looked big enough to put in the boot of the 405. The poor display this year by the Brits may indicate that they were smart enough to stay inside with the central heating on, though I did notice that the D brigade seemed to be enjoying the warmth and hospitality of Questacon.

    Yes, very poor showing from the Brits. However, at least we out numbered the French modern hot hatches ... just (7 x MINI Cooper S). By my count there were 3 x 306s and 1 x 206 GTis.
