I attach photos of the cars 211 and 216 both 1965 "26R"s.

I know they're taking a different route but there's usually a number of classic car events that come our way (Alpe D'Huez) in the summer and if we're over there it's great just sitting out in the sunshine watching them come up the hill.

Every time I go past the Dijon- Prenois circuit I keep an eye out to see if there's anything interesting on. If I'm in the Elan or on any of my motorcycles I'll always take that road rather than the autoroute. Just wondering now whether I can get over there at the start of June for the Coupes Moto Legende. It'll probably depend on the weather I suspect.
