Octagon Tour 16 en 17 may 1998

A year ago we laid a transparency of a octagon on the map of the Netherlands. At each of the corners we made a starting point. At each starting point you became a part of the route to the next point of the octagon. The route follows the most direct line between the points. (although we had a tolerance of 10 miles above or beneath that line.)

In two days you have to collect 8 stamps. If you have collect all the stamps you become a small shield for on your dashboard. Because of the great success of the tour we decided to make it a yearly international event.

This year the event is on the 16e en 17e of may. About 350 MG's will start at one of the 8 starting places. In two days you drive 600 kilometres along de most beautiful places in Holland and Belgium. There is no speed or game element; it is just relaxed driving en enjoying the countryside.

This year we have put the octagon at the map, resulting in the following 8 starting places.
BreukelenSt Amands (Belgium)
SittardSt. Truiden (Belgium)
