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 back.

Here's to the return bout on British soil next year!
Vive L'entente cordiale!!
