Angouleme

Going down to Angouleme this weekend with some friends from AROCKES.

Its the 70th anniversary of the event and looks like being a great weekend if a little liquid (If you know what I mean)

Friday night we arrive in Angouleme via a brief blast around Le Mans. There is a concours in the public park at 20.45hrs. Winner wins his weight in cognac !

On Saturday we are off to the war memorial in Oradour then returning in the afternoon for another show in the Mayor's Garden.

Sunday is race day around a street circuit of this beautiful old town with cars from 1920-s - 50s should be a brilliant atmosphere.

Then a quick blast back to Caen to catch the late ferry on Monday night

Regards

Shame there were no Alfas competing- but the best motorsport event I've ever attended by some margin. I totally agree with the comments re: the atmosphere. A good mate is seriously hoping to compete next year in a Midget- in which case I'd drive the Spider down for the Saturday excursion. An absolutely brilliant weekend. If I get the time to work out how to do it, I'll upload some photos.

Here's the vids, You will note that there are people on the track so these are not at speed, but just to show you the narrowness, incline and camber of the circuit.....
