Combined French - English MG Event
St Valery, France
A superb weekend
magnificently hosted by Vincent Dansart, Chairman for the MG Event 2016 and the
Vice président du MG club de France Liasing with British Organiser ,John Bennett
Vincent, in shorts covered a Marathon of Kilometers on foot and in his MG ROVER
Estate-suitably right hand drive to make the British feel at home!
The Weekend climaxed at the Palais De Congress in Le Touquet,where we found
ourselves part of a massive display of French classics under the auspices of the
FFVE and the recipients of a picnic Anglais and Champagne!
We got to Le Touquet via 2 days of dry weather in Montreuil and our overnight in
Saint Valery Sur Somme,
where we sampled the delights of the Ancient steam railway before
gathering for the Anglo French Dinner, where we attempted to Parlais where the
French put us to shame with their command of English!
Throughout our French MG friends were endlessly welcoming and gentile, being
even more enthusiastic about our English Marque than we are.
In all a memorable weekend enjoyed by all and every car made it to France and
Here's to the return bout on British soil next year!
Vive L'entente cordiale!!
