Have a great time guys

Never have made it, but its rather far and always clashes with a BL DAY which is about 150 miles nearer!

Clashes with a footie game on Saturday and Goodwood Breakfast Club on Sunday I'm afraid.

Gonna possibly be there in Sept in the Imp though.

Another enjoyable rally, everyone friendly and a nice venue. 3 BXs and a very tasty Fiat X1/9 to boot! Thanks to all!

G rally 2017

Tilford Rural Life Museum once again played host to the GS/A Ami rally and it was a resounding success with more classic French cars passing through the gates into the museum grounds than last year.

Many of us took up the option of free camping for the weekend which is increasingly becoming more luxurious as the years go on thanks to Anthony’s enthusiasm. Alongside the communal BBQ and gazebos we had Ikea chairs, posh lampshades with LED lights, a dart board and enough glow sticks to line a runway much to the delight of the children and big kids. How he manages to fit all that gear into the back of his GS estate we’ll never know.

Saturday we all drove over to the Spotted Cow for a mostly pizza based lunch. Chris kindly visited the evening before for quality control checks. He was pleased to confirm that the desserts were particularly tasty.

Sunday is the main rally day for us where we park in and around the historic collection of buildings that the Rural Life Centre has built up over the years. This makes for a really interesting visit as there are lots of different places to explore on site in between looking at cars and chatting to fellow enthusiasts. There is also a railway, café and bookshop on site. I still haven’t had time to see the constantly evolving museum in the 5 years that I’ve been attending.

This year we had a wide selection of classic Citroens, in addition to a large percentage of road going Gs we had a good number of DS and X models along with a Cactus (I can't get enough of those air bumps!) and a new CCC member who brought his pre-war Citroen along to the show which complemented the Traction Avant.

This year we were joined by the car booters in the morning and a selection of 40s and 50s American cars whose owners stayed for the weekend after celebrating a recent marriage in their club. People travelled great distances; a young couple drove all the way from the Netherlands in their DS just for the meeting as they enjoyed it so much last year.

Provisional dates for next year are 4-5th August 2018. Pencil it in your diary now!
