The recently conducted 100 year celebrations were a fabulous gathering of Citroens “old & new”. The gathering consisted of old marques and new models was a sight for us Citroen fans to just have a great day. The final count of 52 cars definitely surprised us and we would love to see them all at the upcoming All French Day at McLaren Vale on Sunday 20th October.
Many thanks to Colin Carati and Matt Cottrell from CCSA for the organising of the day and to Gerry Collella from CCSA and David Maillard for the photographs. Also a great big thanks to John Beswick for his amazing powers of persuasion in convincing the Park staff that we could take our cars onto the oval for the Oval Picture.
A few selected photos from the day for your enjoyment and if any one would like the full set just leave me a reply via the website.

2019 This year the All French Car Day is moving to new pastures and we will be heading to the beautiful surrounds of McLaren Vale. The day will be held at the McLaren Vale visitor centre on Main Road McLaren Vale.
This site offers displays of French Culture, Live Music & French Style Food. There could even be French Wines available and as this is not a dry zone, we will be able to have a truly French Experience. BYO lunch is always an option too.
The Cafe will look after us by providing:
Coffee & French themed cakes etc. for morning tea as cars arrive
French themed lunch & cheese platters for those who’d prefer not to have a picnic
Vale Cru will have their normal cellar door operations in progress – 5 small batch wineries. Free tastings of the wine and then available by the glass or bottle and can be consumed anywhere on the premises. Beer and soft drink available at the café.
This year we are going to give a prize to the Best Dressed Couple in French attire. So, clean out the cobwebs and impress the judges with your sartorial elegance.
We are also introducing two new categories, by dividing the modern group into two and adding the Concours d’Elegance.
On behalf of the organising committee we hope to see you and your clubs members and friends there on the day!
