The Club is organising a UK MATRA/SIMCA convoy to the 2018 SIMCA MATRA Talbot (SMT) International event to be held this coming May 10th – 13th in Libramont, Belgium.
So far we have 11 cars confirmed from the UK. Are you interested in joining the convoy? With over 300 people expected, hotel rooms are selling out FAST!
We will be staying at Hotel Val de Poix, 18 rue de Ardennes, 6870 Saint-Hubert, Belgium on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights for around £70 per night. Breakfast is 15 Euros in addition. This hotel is 17 minutes from the SMT event.
On Sunday night we will be in Lille, France. Comfort Hotel Lille Europe, 53-57, rue Christophe Colomb 59800 Lille France. £58. Free parking.
Event booking is open until 10th April but there is no guarantee you will be able to book the hotel where the UK contingent are staying. There’s always on site camping!
Having trouble booking the hotels? Keep trying as prices and availability keep changing as people drop out from their web bookings. Using a site like booking.com means you can book and cancel free of charge. If you would like £15 cash back contact Titus for a booking code voucher.
We plan to use the DFDS Dover/Dunkirk ferry crossing. Depart 8am Thursday 10th. Return Monday 14th 6pm. Cost will be around £96 return per car or choose your own crossing and meet us there. For those wanting to stay over in Dover the night before the crossing our hotel is The Swingate Inn, Deal Road, Dover, CT15 5DP, United Kingdom. Again, please book now to avoid disappointment.
On Wednesday afternoon we will visit The Dover Transport Museum.
En-route Thursday we plan to visit the Euro Space Centre attraction before arriving in Libramont for the 3 day SMT event. See their website for full details and registration. http://www.simcabelgium.be/pages/pages-club-pagina-s/inscription-libramont-2018-en-1.html
