Events/Shows/Cruises / Official update from FCS
« on: 22:00, Fri 01 March 2013 »
Hello

Just a short update from the team at French Car Show.

The show planning is going very well and we are about to launch the BRAND new website and shop. It's taken a bit longer than expected but we want to get it 100% right. We promise it will knock the socks off previous years.

Anyway we invite you to register your email address at www.frenchcarshow.co.uk and the site will update you when it's live. This will only use your email address once.

Updates are also being made at www.facebook.com/FrenchCarShow so please like for first hand info.

We have a brilliant line up of trade for 2013  EIBACH - FORGE - PIPERCROSS - SCORPION - HTEC - KTEC - MEGUIARS - DODO JUICE - PUG1OFF - COOKSPORT - SAMCO - LASSA TYRES - AMDETAILS the list is growing every day.

2013 has camping Friday and Saturday for only £10 for the 2 nights and as ever loads of FREE attractions and things to do.

We are building a FULL size kart track in the heart of the showground and have a brand new car photo studio being brought in to snap your car for FREE.

It's a chill venue with grass and tar and NO MUD, there's space for club BBQs to relax and enjoy. Not a concrete dust ball like some other tracks.

PS Castle Combe is a beautiful venue, level with London on the east side bottom of M5/M4. It hosts massive popular shows like Rally Day and Japfest. Not as central as before but only once a year so we look forward to seeing you in July.

Adrian Flux French Car Show 2013 in association with LASSA Tyres
Saturday 27th July - Show Day
Sunday 28th July - Club Chill Out day from 9am - 1pm
At Castle Combe Circuit, Wiltshire, SN14 7EY
Entry only £15 for show day & chill out day is free with your show ticket.

Thanks

Camping at French Car Show – 17th June, 2012 Donington

Camping was always a popular choice in the early days of French Car Show but over the past few years the venues have not accommodated camping.

2012 sees camping returning to FCS which is awesome news.

Camping can be booked here:- http://www.frenchcarshow.co.uk/camping

The only thing we ask is clubs police any bad behaviour as we want to be allowed back in 2013!
