Next year the famous banked circuit of l'Autodrome de Montlhéry will be celebrating its 100th Anniversary and the TOC will be there for the Vintage Revival. We’ve been before and it’s a lovely low-key event in the French manner. The organisers are delighted to hear that we’ll be back!
Montlhéry is very close to Paris, so participants or partners who are perhaps less interested in the motorsports side of life can spend a pleasant day or two in the French capital.
The actual Anniversary event is the weekend of 11/12 May and we will be arranging a tour before and after with a group hotel booking. So that I can get an idea of the number of hotel rooms we will need, if you wish to join us on the trip, please let me know. It’s not a binding booking yet until I sort out the full details of hotels etc.
The organisers have agreed that spectating Talbots will have reserved parking in the Pre-1940 Exhibition Park so that we can display together and all cars will be able to take part in parade laps at the end of racing on the Sunday afternoon.
There are also opportunities to perform on the track and this especially needs to be booked without delay as, speaking to the organisers, spaces are filling up fast and places are limited. There are two track-lap sessions per day, both days.
If you wish to take part on track or as a spectator, you need to register your interest with the Club Secretary. The organisers have agreed that they will be able to select a few Talbots for track sessions and of course there is no limit on spectating cars. No money is yet payable and this is not a commitment at this stage.
The Talbot Owners Club magazine is published bi-monthly and contains news, updates and informative articles. It is edited by club secretary David Roxburgh.GO TO DOWNLOADS
