Yesterday was the rally from Limoges to Brive stopping off for lunch at the plan d’eau at Masseret. There were 99 entrants and all cars had to be over 30 years old. I was accompanied by my resident expert Tony who pointed out all the rarer cars. A very rare convertible Renault 4CV, a Lotus 11, Model A Ford, Porsche 356, Renault NN tourer circa 1920, Alfa Romeo sports and of course his favourite Mercedes 190SL It was great to see so many enthusiasts despite the unsettled weather but I have learned that the convertibles took down their tops and stayed dry all afternoon!

Our next rally is next Sunday when we shall be entering with our convertible Mercedes and hopefully completing the course around the Monedieres more successfully than our previous rally!!

This is the Lotus 11
