Does that not defeat the object of “FRENCH CAR SHOW”?…To have a German car on the Cliosport.net stand (Even if it has nice wheels and is shiny) is not really on!
Your other half should not be ashamed of his Clio.......My son would never even consider bringing his Audi to the French Car Show. Better that your other half’s Audi is parked in the Public Car Park
I thought the idea of the French car show was for fans of French cars? Same as membership to this group - you don’t HAVE to own a clio to be a member but it’s for the enthusiasts and fans alongside the owners?
We happen to own two Renaults in the household along with membership of Cliosport and being employee of Renault sport so we were planning on going to have a good day out looking at other people’s car, enjoying the atmosphere and having some fun? He’s not applied to do track time and he’s not entering any judging competition, he’s is merely part of a convoy of other members but has chosen not to bring his battered commuting car to stick in a space?

I presume all non-clio/Renault owners that turn up in their various other makes of car and have applied for a ticket under cliosport.net will have to go elsewhere too?

Let us not dilute a Clio stand with what are clearly not Renault cars.....Just my opinion.....Maybe Cliosport Admin could comment?

Admin will have this years answer but I know previously the non-clios Park at the back of the stand. Which is a decent compromise in my eyes.
Which is perfectly fine in my eyes too. As I said he’s not wanting to show it off or participate so he would happily park it where it will get no attention at all - he just wants to be where he knows and with who he is coming with (plus he has my child in tow).
If it’s a firm no from the moderators then we’ll have to rethink our plans obviously

We've always allowed any club member to join us regardless of their car, we just have a 'rejects' parking area out the back ?.

French Car Show is particularly good for this because of the stand position at the circuit. This means the Clio display is not affected in any way.

Thanks for clarifying @Nik!
He’s used to being in a reject parking space.. he knows my Gordini gets the prime parking on our drive ?

Quick question, is the stand in the same spot as last year, was ideal in my opinion.
Yeah we are, well almost. There's a trade stand in the very corner where the tunnel is so we're just a little bit further along.

Got my two tickets. Anyone know if you can buy day tickets on the gate?
Got a flakey mate who’s leaving his decision to come until the last minute...

Im going to book tickets today for this, for access to the club stand is there a certain time I will need to arrive on the saturday? Just so I know what time to set off thats all. Also what does the 'parade lap' consist of? Just drive round the track in line?

now, pardon me from getting back from the pub after England lost to Belgium (Yay, we are in an easier route to the final some say)
That means we play Columbia Tuesday night

And if we win that, play the following Saturday- which is FCS
and as far as I know- there are two kick off times for matches

3pm and 7pm

So if its 3pm, Endgland will be playing a 1/4 final world cup game at FCS??>!!!

That right?

@Sunglasses_Ron @Nik Can you guys let me know what time etc on the Saturday please? It’s a 2 hour trip so I need to plan what time I pull myself out of bed ?

Where are you coming from? If you go in to local meetings and go on your area you may find there is a convoy organised ?
Coming from Liverpool way, I put a post up myself but I didn’t get any interest ? it’s 2 hours from my way so I’ll aim for 8 for gates opening I guess!

Booked up again for this year and booked track time as well.
@BoostedSi let me know if you fancy a meet up again. ??(Assuming you’re able to go)
Hey matey. Sorry for the insanely late reply. Haven’t been on here for about a month or so. Won’t be attending this year i’m afraid as i’m working unfortunately ?

Got a 3 and 3/4 hour journey to get there on Saturday, praying there’ll still be a space when I arrive ??

Could I still gain access to the CS Stand if I buy a ticket on the gate? I've left it way to late to pre-book a ticket and space online.
