R10 French WOTY to Angoulême Circuit des Remparts Historic Rally/Racing 16-21 Sept 2021

Our fabulous R10 European Weekend Of The Year tour to the ancient southwestern French town of Angoulême is available for booking now. Hotel spaces in town are very limited because of all the 2020 rollovers, but accommodation outside may be found if you are interested. 
 

 
Every September, Angoulême is filled with racing enthusiasts for the Historique Circuit des Remparts, the annual gathering of vintage and classic cars.  You can read more in this link https://www.sceniccartours.com/angouleme, but in summary from Thursday 16th to Tuesday 21st September we will be following a standard tour offered by Scenic Car Tours, slightly tweaked if you join in with the recommended arrangements.  
 
It’s a 600+ mile two-day drive there in your Porsche, arriving in Angoulême on the Friday; we will view the historic car rally and have leisure time on Saturday, watch the racing from grandstand seats on the Sunday, and start for home the next day. 
 
The number of hotels in the Angouleme area is extremely limited, so if you wish to come along, you should book now to avoid disappointment. 
 
Prices are as below, for which you will receive the following:
 
  • Return Eurotunnel crossing from Folkestone to Calais;
  • Thursday night at the Ibis Hotel, Le Mans - outbound journey;
  • Monday night at the Novotel la Source, Orleans - return journey;
  • Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights at the  Ibis Nord £681 per person (two sharing) or £994 travelling solo, or Appart'City Hotel, Angouleme £739 per person (two sharing) or £1,094 travelling solo;
  • Buffet breakfast each morning & meals as itinerary;
  • Grandstand tickets & paddock passes for Sunday racing;
  • Detailed road book featuring maps, great drives & event information;
  • Commemorative tour rally plate.
Car parking charges are additionally payable at the Appart'City or free offsite parking is a short walk from hotel. 
 
As the destination and the events there are the purpose of the trip, the drive down and back is largely by motorway, and the hotels are stopover points rather than being chosen for style and relaxation. However, there are options for the journey each way that can be discussed, once your commitment to join the trip has been given. 
 
So if you wish to take part, please let me know as soon as possible, whether or not you are one of the 3 couples that is rolling over from last year, the other holding a voucher, or someone just now finding out about it. 
 
The hotel rooms must be reserved urgently. Last week there were just 2 rooms available at the Appart’City and 3 at the Ibis, so if you delay, you will have to stay at an inferior hotel, or worse, be unable to join with us on this fabulous trip. 
 
Please indicate your intentions by replying to this post on the forum, and also emailing me at mark.grimwood1@btinternet.com, ensuring that I have your telephone number for further contact. 
 
I have more detailed information from Scenic Car Tours to share with you, once I hear of your interest. Meanwhile, please do not hesitate to ask me any questions if you have them. I will also be covering a bit more detail at the 14th January R10 Zoom meeting. I look forward to seeing you on screen! 
 
Mark

Hi Mark, thanks again for arranging this WATY. I’ve just sent e-mail to you to confirm request to include Susan and me. Hope COVID restrictions are relaxed by Sept!
