    Looks like a great tour Another one to add to my wish list!

    (Good to see local FOC groups doing some varied activities other than pubs and picnics)

    What was that next to the 350 GT Lamborghini? Looks boat shaped

    Nice pics and looks like a gfret trip. I visited the Matra Museum last June in conjunction with the Chinon Classic weekend. Nice litle museum and especially interesting for me in that, unknown to me before I got there, it is housed in the old Beaulieu movie camera factory. In a previous life I sold those cameras so that wadded to the interest.

    Next June I am once again taking part in the Chinon Classic (for the 4th year running) through Classic Grand Touring, and will this time I plan to visit the Manoir Museum en route, so great to see the pics.

    If anyone else wants to join me it's a great fun weekend.

    weather was superb till the day of versailles...rained all day, then the next day at ypres as well, before that it was top down on cars, sun cream on and eating outside at night...

    Yorkshire FOC is superb at the moment, plenty of runouts, trips to France and Scotland, plus the Factory tour (independantly organised by the group)
    Next year there's ice driving, another European tour, tour of the boarders, a couple of group runouts and a Morgan factory tour..few more stuff to be announced as well..
