Hugues Bigot, in association with Club Lotus France, has arranged another ‘Esprit D’Aventure’ event for 2021, this time in Burgundy, in the beautiful Morvan national park region of France.

 The dates are 16th – 19th September, the event is open solely to Esprit owners, the number is capped at 20. There are now three places left out of the 20, with Sparky and I already signed-up.

 There is a choice of either two, or three, nights half-board accommodation in the well-appointed 3-Star ‘Hotel de Trois Maures’ in Couches, with planned excursions each day to local places of interest, including a wine-tasting, a technical museum and a castle visit, all the while taking in the scenic routes.

 Prices:    3 nights: €790 for 2 persons, 470 single person.

               2 nights: 560 for 2 persons, 340 for one person.

               A ‘per car’ 15 supplement is payable for non-members of Club Lotus France.

 Pre-registration is the first step, please e-mail Hugues at bigot.hugues@orange.fr and he will send you full details, and the registration forms. Please note there is no obligation at this stage.

 Bearing in mind Covid and the current travel issues, it is advised that if you pre-register, you monitor the regulations regarding travel to and from France. The deadline for event confirmation is 15th August, no exceptions.

Hi, I suspect you all are aware of this already but in France you will need to be vaccinated to do pretty much anything starting from tomorrow (august 9th), including restaurants, visits, and so on.

Sounds great, look forward to seeing some pictures of the event! I sadly won't be able to make it this time, but will definitely try in the future if it takes place again.

Shocking to see a rough old S4s dumped by that lovely medieval building.

British Fart to Florida, Nude to New York, Dunce to Denmark, Numpty to Newfoundland.  And Shitfaced Silly Sod to Sweden.

Your Esprit looks lovely in that colour scheme. very nice @Chillidoggy.

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

Middle-lane hoggers abound on 3-lane Autoroutes

I think there are more near Paris because I reckon they are used to drive in the middle lane on the Paris ring road to avoid incoming traffic from the right, but indeed it's extremely annoying.

Moving on after lunch, we also stopped for a visit to a place in the middle of nowhere at which a guy only restores pre-war Citroens. Never seen so many old starter motors in my life, and a fascinating workshop, stuff everywhere but somehow (just like Sparky's magic garage), you felt he would be able to lay his hands on whatever part he needed.

Odd that it's right hand drive from a French manufacturer. :) 

 

And a Chenard & Walcker car was the winner of the first ever 24 Heures du Mans, in 1923.

Sunday morning, saw drizzly weather. The last port of call for the tour was the Chateau de Savigny-les-Beaune, which boasts the largest collection of Abarth race cars, and a collection of jet fighters in the garden. After battling with legions of 911's which had turned up at the same time, we finally got parked and went for a browse around the cars located on the first floor. I don't know much about Abarth, but from what I saw, they might have beaten Colin Chapman to the draw when it comes to lightweight, small-engined racers.
