Because of the amount of interest, we have managed to obtain some additional rooms for this event.

Please note that although rooms can be provisionally reserved - they will not be confirmed until we receive booking forms and deposits.

VINMOG a été le premier club à soutenir cet évènement dès sa création.
En 2017, avec nos amis du Morgan Club de France, avec qui nous avons partagé la marquise, nous présentions 100 voitures au pied de l'anneau.
Le prochain VRM aura lieu le weekend du 11 et 12 mai 2019, et il sera très spécial pour les amoureux des MORGAN puisqu'il fêtera le centenaire de la première MORGAN, ainsi que le centenaire de l'importation des MORGAN par DARMONT avant que ce dernier les assemble dans la banlieue parisienne.
Il y a déjà plusieurs 3 et 4 roues MORGAN inscrites, et nous aurons donc ainsi beaucoup d'amis à encourager.
VINMOG a réservé des chambres, à 4* Novotel Evry Courcouronne, quinze minutes du circuit.
Ce circuit, un des derniers encore en activité, revêt pour nous une importance particulière, car c'est là qu'entre 1928 et 1930, Gwenda Stewart et S C H (Sammy) Davis, ont battu 60 records du monde dans la classe des cycle-cars, avec entre autres en 1928, le record de vitesse à 101,5 miles en une heure, couvrant 1553 miles en 24 heures.
Nous vous proposons 3 nuits avec petits déjeuners et repas du soir.
Les prix seront de l'ordre de 750€ pour 2 personnes partageant une chambre.
Après les courses, une parade gratuite est prévue si aucun retard ne l'empêche. Elle se fera à allure modeste derrière un pace car.
Si vous êtes intéressés, enregistrez-vous sans engagement. Nous vous contacterons quand les modalités seront connues.

 

VinMog has always supported this great event – in 2017, together with our good friends the Morgan Club de France we had around one hundred Morgan displayed right by the spectacular banking, with a marquee shared between us.
The next event – on the weekend of 11 & 12 May 2019 will be extra special for everyone that likes Morgans. The event will celebrate the 110 years since the first Morgan took to the road – and, as this is in France, also the one hundred years since Darmont started importing Morgans, and a little later started assembling them at their factory on the outskirts of Paris.
We already know of Morgans, both three and four wheeled, that plan to enter – so we will have many friends to support.
VinMog has reserved a number of rooms at the 4* Novotel Evry Courcouronne (just 14 kilometers from the Autodrome). For those that do not know it Montlhéry (or to give it its full title L’Autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry) is one of the last banked circuits in use today. It is of particular importance to Morgan as it was here that, between 1928 and 1930, Gwenda Stewart and S. C. H. (Sammy) Davis collected some sixty world records in cyclecar classes – including (in 1928) 101.5 miles in one hour, and covering 1553 miles in 24 hours
The deal will include three night’s B&B with evening meals. The provisional price, including full weekend entry tickets, rally plaque and the use of the VinMog marquee is €750 for TWO people (sharing one hotel room). The reason we have to make the price provisional is that not all costs are fully known so far ahead of the event.
There will be the possibility to take part in a parade lap at the end of the weekend – but note this is dependent upon there being no delays during the actual event and it will be behind an official car at a fairly sedate pace. There will be no extra cost for this.
Please click here to register your interest but, of course, this does not commit you to any payment – this will not happen until we can advise firm prices – you can decide then.
For our UK members we can arrange to include Channel crossings (Dover Calais five day tickets) at an all-in cost of  around £790 per couple (in one car and hotel room). Crossings via Hull Zeebrugge, or with Brittany Ferries services will be available at whatever extra this costs us.
