Classic British Car Run, Disneyland Paris, 4th-7th July '13
#1
I know I'm new here, so not quite sure about the rules about publicising events, but for the past few years, I have travelled on a 'Magical Mini Tour' to Disneyland Paris. Anyway, for 2013, they are widening the criteria for entrants to be any Classic British Car, so I thought it would be nice if there were some DeLoreans there too. I am aware that it is only a fortnight after the club's Yorkshire event, but that still mean no clash between the two events... I am negotiating with my dad about booking up tickets to go in my Mini (a modern take on a classic make, hoping it will become a classic in its own right in due course...).

Anyway, more info here. And if it is not my place to advertise events like this here, please get rid of this and I'll understand, but it has traditionally been a great event, and I would love to see other classic British marques (particularly the DeLorean) there!

dont worry about posting events, the more the merrier.

I wont be able to go, as I'll be about a week or so off of giving birth, but I'm sure some
of our other members will be interested.

This specific event has traditionally only been Minis before, but expanding to Classic British Cars now. Although I have noticed another thread on here about a Disneyland event back in 2010...
