The TOC, and indeed all Talbot owners, have been invited to the 2020 Fougères Rally by the Automobile et Patrimoine du Pays de Fougères (APPF). Originally French Talbots were to have been the featured marque, but following a lead from Ralph and Judith Genee, this honour has now been extended to all pre-war Talbots.
This long-established event is a short hop across the Channel and consists of tours around the Brittany peninsular mixed with typically French hospitality. Some TOC Members have already experienced this event in previous years and reported back with enthusiasm.
The suggested hotel for all TOC, STD and Club Talbot attendees will be Hotel de l'Europe in Morlaix (120€ to 140€ BandB for two per night) in town centre, with free guarded car park 300 yards from hotel. Book using the application forms on the Fougères website www.rallye-fougeres.org
This should be a great event for us as Talbot will the featured marque and we are working in conjunction with the STD.
Full details were published in the September/October TOC Magazine on p7.
