French Car Day 2019 in Sydney at Silverwater Park. Sunday 14 July 2019.
The Sydney French Car Day is hosted jointly by the Citroen, Peugeot, Simca and Renault car clubs of NSW and will be held on Sunday 14 July 2019, at Silverwater Park, from 9:00 am. Entry via Clyde St east. This is the same venue as in past years.
All French vehicles, including motorcycles, of any age including veteran, vintage classics, modern, not so modern, daily drivers, not so daily drivers, sporting, rallying, touring, are welcome. Any vehicle shown can be trailered. Entry classes arranged on the day.
The entry fee of $10 into the grounds is to recover the cost of the hire of the field. This fee includes entry to the concours if you would like your car to be judged.
If you would like to enter your car in the concours, the cut off time is noon. Please be there well in advance of that time so that the judges can arrange their inspections.
Each marque will judge and enter its best two cars into the final judging against all other marques. From those finalists, whose owners are expected to be a member of a car club, will be selected the best French car on the day.
Any owner is welcome to enter a car in the general concours and be judged and be eligible for a category win.
Trophies presented as early as practical, and raffle prizes on the day.
There will be an award each for the best French dressed male and female, and for the furthest travelled to the event.
One item of feedback we have had is that, especially for first-timers, the place is not signposted. There’s a good reason for that. Being off a main road, we cannot put up banners, posters, fliers or sandwich boards. All are a hazard, and need a DA.
It is easy to get to. From the north on Silverwater Rd, you turn to the left, east, at the lights at Clyde St. From the south, you turn right, east, at the lights.
Then left immediately, as you cannot legally go straight ahead, it is bus only. Loop around under the bridge, and there you find us. You can use the carpark outside if you are not entering the grounds.
We kick off about 9 am, concours entries close at noon. It is $10 car entry at the gate. Please park as directed. There will be adequate refreshments, in the shape of coffee vans and food sellers. There’s toilets, merchandise, trophies, a raffle. The regulars bring their own seating or card table.
Due to the prevalence of online meteorological information available, we should have a good idea in the preceding days how the weather will be. In the case of it being touch and go, ring Ross on 0499 708 108 or Chris on 0412 306 504.
In the case of being rained out, there is no alternate date, as the ground has to be booked (and paid for!) well in advance.
