La Piste Bleu - Thruxton 6th December 2019

Postby stephendell » Wed Nov 20, 2019 5:59 pm

On Friday 6th December 2019 Alpine UK are planning a circuit day for prospective owners at Thruxton where they can drive the A110 & new A110S version back to back.

Malcolm Banfield (Alpine Territory Manager UK) has recently taken over from Marco Knoot and has invited us to display some classic Alpines.

He has promised you will be fed and watered and there may be an opportunity to try out the new A110 on the track.

If you are interested in going along please let me know.

Hi Stephen,

I'm already attending this in my A610 following an invite via Club Alpine Renault.

Regards, Barry.

Malcolm has also indicated that the classic Alpines present would be able to go out on the track for a few laps. He mentioned Insurance but I'm not clear whether he means standard insurance or track day insurance. I guess if you don't have the latter then you go out at your own risk...as usual...!

Morning all,

If your thinking of coming along to the Thruxton Circuit this coming Friday then Malcolm has confirmed that all classic Alpines will be allowed out on the track with or without Insurance. Obviously if it's without Insurance then its at your own risk but then that's no different to any other event I've attended at Silverstone, Goodwoood , Donnington and tracks in France...so I'll be going for a pootle...! :0

Cheer, Barry.
