Marcon Classic - 17th & 18th August

Doctor Houx

If anyone is in the Le Mans area the weekend of 17/18 August, you might want to pay this event a visit.

Held by a beautiful lake in the village of Marcon, about 5km from La Chartre sur le Loir and the famous Hotel de France, it attracts over 1,000 (mainly French) vehicles of all types including cars, bikes, commercial and military vehicles. There's even DUKW rides across the lake! There are autojumble and automobilia stalls, lots of food and drink and on Sat night a band and fireworks from 20.30 till late. Its a bit like a French version of Chris Evans's "Carfest"

Sun morning we have a drive out convoy of c 45km round trip to a Chateau between Marcon and LM. I'll be participating in my Grancabrio, so come along and say hello. Entry to the event is just €2.20, so a bargain
