    Sadly it is on the same day as the bi-annual Cooma Motorfest from which entrants cannot leave until 4pm.

    Barry,

    Can you please advise if Peugeot 604 and 605 models are recognised for this event?

    I ask because they apparently didn't exist at the last significant French car show attended by myself.

    Thanks.

    Addo - good to see you actually posting.

    By the way did you realise that was your 604th post. Pretty tricky mate. I took a screen shot to prove it

    Hi,
    could you give details of the location. Thinking of taking a run down from Sydney for it.

    Telopea Park School is located at 25 New South Wales Crescent, Barton, ACT. Google Telopea Park School and it will throw up a map for you.

    Cheers

    Just an update for next Saturday. School is now fenced and entrance will be sign posted and will be from the Telopea Park side the same as previously. Weather forecast looks good - sunny and 29 degrees. Don't forget the school is again running its giant raffle with many prizes on offer, including a trip to Paris for two valued at up to $4000.

    See you all there.

    Default Canberra French Car Day 5 November 2011

    Hi all

    A warm 29 degrees greeted participants at the French Car Day and again there was a strong contingent from the Renault Club of Australia based in Sydney. In all there were 34 cars with 18 Renaults, 10 Pugs and 6 Citroens. Results of the popular vote were: Best French Car Outright went to Gerry Carson for his Citroen Light 15. He also won best Citroen. Best Renault went to Andrew Collier from the Sydney Club for his Renault 5 Turbo 2 and best Peugeot went to Brad Pillans for his Pug 203.

    Some of us stayed for the draw of the giant raffle but no one we knew won the trip for two to Paris worth $4,000. Winners will be posted as soon as the results are officially advised by the school.

    Not sure why they set up the balloons gas burner under a tree, but I reckon today would have the poor old gum with one side completely fried!

    Hi all

    For those that attended the Canberra French Car Day on 5 November at Telopea Park School, here are the results of the raffle. There were over $25,000 worth of prizes on offer with the number 1 prize of a trip to Paris for two worth $4000. Unfortunately, no one I knew won that and it would have been nice to at least win the French course (prize number 11).

    I was wondering about the cab.
    It had no seat belts that I could see... maybe not required on that vintage car???
    and he had full rego on it. thought it would've had club plates as owner has two other road going pugs

    Is an event like this planned next year as well? I would be interested in participating! And if you're looking for prices for the raffle I can also give you a port hamper. I think hampers are good prices because they are very useful Or some vouchers for accessories for the car, eg if you need new wheels or something like that.
