    Default 2006 Victorian French Car Festival

    The Victorian French Car Festival is on again in April.

    This years event will be held at a new venue (Como Park North) on Sunday the 9th of April 2006.

    As usual, the event will be open to all French cars, whether, concourse, daily driver or motor sport special and is as much a great social day as it is a car show...

    There is an event mini site that will be reguarly updated with news and information as the event draws closer.

    Hopefully it all goes well.

    The venue is about as central as we could get and has entry off a fairly quiet street, yet good exposure and facilities.

    There is a big oval next to the park where kids can have a kick and the Yarra is nearby also...

    Mate, I'm going for 2 in a row. Especially when I paint my calipers fire engine red like. You can all park next to Rach's 205 which will show you all up enough

    Hopefully the council won't mind spots of dead grass caused by oil leaks everywhere.

    Although it states cars should be there by a certain time, is there any mention about when cars can leave ? Do you need to register, or is it "rock up" on the day? How many attended last year? Is there a flyer for distribution or printing out? Is this the equivalent to the "french car day" in other states?

    G'day,

    In answer to the above questions...

    Cars can leave anytime (judging is usually at about 2pm)

    No Registration is Required - just rock up on the day...

    200+ cars attended last years event

    Yes - The Flyer - in PDF and doc format (and a few other bits and pieces) will be uploaded to the website shortly

    Yes - I think it has been going in Vic for just as long if not longer than other French Car Festivals/Days...

    I'm assuming there's no equivalent Sydney event at the same time...
    So i might make the journey...

    I'll have to plan time off etc etc... so we'lll see how it goes.

    it would be good to see an AX GT on the road, has yours got the factory bonnet scoop and side skirts?

    P.S love that picture you got up next to your name, I believe its known as curb crawling in the UK.

    it never came with a bonnet scoop, but it does have the factory body kit, which has flared wheel arches and skirts aswell as the rear wing. the biggest problem is that the grey when whitish in the sun,a nd someone painted it, adn the paint is peeling off, and it loks shocking. youll see what i mean

    Two in a row...? I still can't believe you actually won last year.

    My money is on alexi winning something in his S1 205. (it is insanely original and mint)

    I really need to get my car up by then... no doubt it will still look like shit, but my hektoubercannon will get some respect.
