FrenchFest 2019 - Horsham July 14th

Postby Pondman » Sun Dec 02, 2018 11:05 am

Hi all,
I have been asked by the event organisers to assist them in creating a French car display/show for Horsham town center to celebrate Bastille Day on Sunday 14th July 2019. This will be a new event for the area. I hope to gather together a wide collection of interesting and varied French cars, spanning many years of production. This will be an eclectic event with a broad spectrum of vehicles. We would be after interesting, rare and classic show worthy examples that represent the scope of the French car industry. I hope that some of you would like to come and share your passion for your cars with the people of Horsham and surrounding areas.

Horsham is situated in the heart of West Sussex and the event would probably consist of a convoy into town followed by a static display in the ‘Carfax’ and a procession out and homeward. It would last from morning to afternoon. As the roads will be closed, once the participants are located they will need to stay for the duration.

This will be a great event and judging by previous Italian themed events organised (see link) and now a long standing Easter fixture it I will be well attended. (See link)

I own a Renault Megane R26 F1, so will be attending in that. If you are interesting in attending please can you copy and paste the start of the list below and add your name and car/vehicle model to it so I can get an idea of numbers and vehicle type proposed. There will be limited space and as said, I’d like a wide variety of makes and models as much as possible.
Many thanks, Ross Charman.

Ross, the original poster, has asked me (partly in my role with ROC) to help him find one or two exceptional cars for a "Showcase Tour" taking place on Sunday 24th March to promote a series of themed events, of which FrenchFest is one

Keith - I think your Spider would be exactly what they are looking for! Alternatively would an owner of a New A110 be interested in taking part

That’s not far for me if I haven’t sold the A610 that or a blue Lemans GTA can attend, or maybe by then a short wheelbase Citroen Ds Rally replica if it’s finished.

Are there any takers for a ‘Promo Tour’ around Horsham district on the 24th March?
It’ll be a whole day event 8:30 breakfast meeting + briefing, then around the district to various locations in a joint vehicle convoy inc. American, VW and Italian special cars. Culminating in a tea at the locally renowned South Lodge Hotel.
One space available
The Twizzy would be a great addition ;)
