23rd Grand Prix Retro: 20-21 July 2019 image

 

This weekend is definitely for retro, vintage car and motorbike enthusiasts!  Held in Le Puy Notre-Dame the 3rd weekend in July, more than 160 pre-war vehicles; Bugatti, Fiat, Amilcar, tricyclecars, sidecars and motorcycles will be on view and raced through the bale lined village streets.

 

Superb fun to watch and potter around, with food stands to lunch at.  An early arrival is recommended for parking as the event is extremely well attended!
