Anyone going to this? Confusingly it is based in Chinon in the Loire valley. This will be my first time, looks like a mini Layon thing, non competitive rally with numerous food stops on the Saturday with option of gala dinner in the evening. Demo runs round the town on Sunday and general car fest. 250 rally entrants, pre covid about 40 from the UK.

Sadly we won't have time on this trip, thanks for the tip!

In the GP de Tours/Chinon Classic, there will be 264 cars, including 38 probably from the UK and including 19 Morgans of which 17 from France and 2 from the UK, anyone from TM? There are also 62 motor cycles, including 3 from this side of the Channel, Chinon will be busy next weekend!

Alastair,

Please let us know what this is like. I am interested as an alternative to Angouleme.

Thanks,
Nick

Hi Nick, I hope you are both well, I'll keep you posted. Next year's should be pretty special as it will be the centenary of the first Grand Prix de Tours.

Yep both well, thanks for asking. That's slightly annoying as I will still be working next year when that is on... I am tied to school holidays... then should be free from Easter 2024. Perhaps I should take my second early retirement even earlier!
