ABOUT THE EVENT
The Franschhoek Motor Museum will host the FMM Concours and Time Trial, a glamorous
celebration of classic cars, on the L’Ormarins wine farm on 27 & 28 February 2010.
Showcasing the most coveted cars, all produced between 1900 and 1980, it is a not-to-bemissed
event on the social and motoring calendar.
The Time Trial:
Testing the capabilities of the finest vintage cars, the FMM Time Trial will see 50 classic cars
put through their paces as they travel around a specially-designed circuit. The Time Trial will
include 3 groups: A) speeds of 50km/h, B) speeds of 70km/h, and C) speeds of 90km/h – to
accommodate the various pedigrees and speeds of these phenomenal machines. Each of
the cars will make at least 4 runs around the custom course that can be viewed from
designated areas on the farm.
The Concours
The Concours segment pays homage to 17th century French aristocracy, who paraded horsedrawn
carriages through the parks of Paris. In the FMM Concours, the continent’s most
exceptional vehicles will gather for critical review by a panel of motoring judges, as they are
finely examined – from their upholstery and paint to the mechanical restoration under their
vintage hoods.

Apologies for the delay - got this on Tuesday morning. I would like to see the one in June!
Dear Eldridge.

We have planes for an Alfa Romeo display later this year, this will be in June as Alfa Romeo will be celebrating there 100 centenary this year (June 24 1910 Alfa Romeo was founded in Milan). Our planes are to invite all Alfa owners to join us for a weekend of Alfa fun.

I would also like to bring to your attention our Time trial and concours happening the end of this Month on the 27th and 28th a very rear Alfa from 1948 is going to be in action on both days and should not be missed.

Thanks for the interest
