If you are still on the waiting list for the European Event, may I draw your attention to an alternative event being organised by members of our club in Poland, in August. For more details, read: https://www.sl113.org/forums/index.php?topic=27395.0

Dear Euro Event attendees ,

A small update for now ....

Summer has arrived and within 4 months we will all meet in the south of France .

As we speak we are working on the itinerary for the event .  Paul and Pascal will scout the
stops and the route next month so there will be no surprises when we visit the region.

At the moment we're reaching the point of no return for our attendees .
Meaning that we cannot guarantee a refund after this month , when cancelling or if for what ever reason attending is not possible.

This is how the attendee list , by forum name ,  looks for now ;

Rick007  , Pablo02 , Gnuface , Peter van Es , Neelyrc , Martijn & JohhnyB , Tom , Achim114015 & Kampala , mbzse , JJD , Mazmona ,
griffin1404 , brianinnl , Naj , Kemal , Garry , Drewtee , Marilyn , 66andblue , Suedtiroler , hgabet , Star63 , Sweden mike , Khajenouri,
JamesL , Andre , Pascal Feraud , 450SL , jmbour , Sully , Simax  ,

These are the members we received full payment and a guarantee to attend .

Then please mail your shirt size !   for those who did not do this all ready .
We want to look sharp at the Event , and avoid very small or very big shirts for some  :)

keep you posted ....

Greetings from the ,

The 2018 Euro Event team

I assume that Rick only shows the “Drivers” name, perhaps that is why I am also not on the list. At least I hope that is the case.

However, the list shows also “Martijn & Johnny B”  .... "Achim114015 & Kampala" so I am slightly confused.

I’m Sure Rick wlll clarify.

Hello All ,

Well shirt sizes are pouring in  ... Everyone wants look sharp  :)     Thank you.

As for the number of teams, we had some last minute cancelations , so we worked the waiting list.
But apparently all made other plans for September ... so we have 1 or maybe 2 more places left .

If there are still some members who want to attend send me a PM. 
We will keep these places in option until the end of this Month ( 31th of Mai ), after that we have to close the attendee list.

Greetings from the 2018 Euro Event Team

Where can I find more info about this event (dates, program, fees, ...)? Couldn't find any on the Events section in TM or in the forum.  ??? I could be interested to join...

That's the plan! And I am still upset I missed your event as it is such a stunning part of the world.

Indeed I am also trying to get more details of activities as I am making travel plans. Mrs JamesL will be flying to/from Nice and I need to know when to book the outbound. Nominally, I'd do a morning flight on Friday 28th and out late on the 30th but if there's a cabaret that Rick is hosting on the Thursday night...

PM send James ..

But to react on your " Cabaret "suggestion ... Great I'l ask Paul to preform a little stand up show for us  :)
And yes it would be nice to have you both there on time on Thursday evening, since you missed out in 2016 .

Greetings ..

Many of you have driven in France and know that driving here is not exactly like driving in many other countries.  There is the Right Way, the Wrong Way and the French Way

For those of you who have never driven in France, or for those who wondered why you were being cursed or honked at routinely while driving in France -- thought I would provide the most basic of rules to help our Pagoda crews navigate the south of France with a little more ease this September.

The main rule that confuses many is ‘Priorité à droite’ (Priority to the right).   What this basically means is that a car entering the street you are driving on, from your right, has the right-of-way (with some exceptions).  So picture this - you are driving on a large 3 or 4 lane road and someone from a single lane road on your right can cut across all 4 lanes without stopping at the intersection and all 4 lanes of traffic must give-way because ‘Priorité à droite’.   They have the right of way. 

This is the most confusing point at round-a-abouts.  Typically, most non-French, are used to having the right-of-way once in a round-a-about.  Not the case in France (with exceptions).  Many round-a-bouts must give way to any car entering from the right - even if the round-a-about is 5 lanes and the entering car is coming from a single lane. 

There are exceptions to add to the confusion.  If there is a solid line at the intersection in front of a car entering your street from the right, that car MUST stop.  If there is a broken line in front of the car entering on your right, that car must yield (give way).   However, if there is no line, that car has right of way -‘Priorité à droite' and you must give way.

Some signs also change this rule.     There are hundreds of road signs but there are 3 or 4 that will make driving in France much easier.    If interested, see these links as they explain with photos the most basic ‘Priorité à droite’ signage exceptions.    These are in English.


https://www.drive-france.com/faqs/get-your-priorities-right

https://www.france-pub.com/forum/2012/04/14/priority-to-the-right-2/



For fun, those that want a taste of 10 questions out of the hundreds and hundreds of "code de la route"  (driving code) practice test - here's a youtube link in French.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tvoJSInrwC4


And for those who want a laugh - here's  a video of the very large round-a-about in Paris with ‘Priorité à droite’ in action.    I know we won't be driving near Paris - so take this with a grin.

Thanks Oz, for the guidance.

Do you think we should we be concerned that our cars are too old to be allocated a "crit air" class,so cannot have a sticker.,do you think we will be transiting any of the controlled locations ?

Thanks

Thank you Oz!

Great information. I shall with your permission incorporate your notes in my PDF file (that I am assembling with addresses, lunch stops, gas stops and routes etc) to the individuals that will partisipate in the trip to the Paul Bracq Ateliers after the Euro Event. One of our members living in the south of France Jean-Michel B. has helped me greatly arranging our 2 day trip, your notes will help all to be aware of some of the traffic laws. Our plan is to divide the group into 3 separate groups of 3 and or 4 cars to make it easier to navigate the route.

Best

Thanks Oz, great explanation and the Etoile video is special.  There is only one rule, keep your eye on your right front fender and let all comers pass!

When I lived in Paris, I didn’t allow any visitor from out of town the free use of my car until he could prove his prowess at negotiating Etoile.  Most wouldn’t ask after a couple of rush hour trips through with me.
