PostPosted: Fri Aug 16, 2019 2:47 pm    Post subject: Porsche Paradis - St Tropez October 2019 - pic heavy Page 3.
Event starting Fri Oct 11, 2019 3:00 pm for 3 days
Reply with quote

Usual Holiday comedown & cheap flights have coerced me into booking my yearly jaunt to Porsche Paradis in St Tropez. Hopefully some of you guys will get on this. It's an amazing weekend and the whole town is buzzing with plenty of lovely motors to gawp at.

This year's theme is Yellow (& Orange) so it looks like the event will be as colourful as ever.

It usually works out quite a cheap weekend as flights and car hire are mega cheap this time of the year, as is accommodation. I've just paid £66 flying from Liverpool to Nice Friday afternoon and returning Monday afternoon.

Hopefully see some of you there!

If anyone fancies it and needs any advice or help sorting things out, just give us a shout.

Details of the even here:

Missed this last year but am going this year. Driving down, not sure which day yet, with 3 cars; 996.2 GT3 (midnight blue), 997.1 GT3 (speed yellow) and 997.2 GT3 (white).

Should be a fun trip!

Thanks Alex, that looks like an ideal place to be in October. Looks like flights direct from Leeds too on the Friday, back Monday £116. Hmm.......Just before Brexit too, so I won't have to have any shots or apply for a visa. Grin

Just finishing packing my trolly dolly before heading off out for a few scoops to calm my nerves. Weather's been up at 27 degrees and sunny all week and can't see that changing over night. Cool

Why do you need to calm your nerves?
