Latest from the organisers:- (vanquish@skynet.be/bernard@belgiumsbest.com)

We have now the hotels secured, the activities and the restaurants for the whole of the event. Aston Martin Belgium is supplying technical assistance during the whole event.Due to the touristic character of the cities the hotels are not the cheapest but they offer a very good price/quality. The hotel for the first night is the Chateau du Lac in Genval, close to Brussels. In Bruges you have the choice between The Tuileries or if you want to have a cheaper alternative (100 euro less) the Martins Hotel Bruges. You can have a look at http://www.ila-chateau.com/tuilerie ; http://www.martinshotels.com ; The cars will always be secured . We have booked the rooms and will send you the inscription details . Just let us know how many rooms you need and how many persons will be coming. Price will be (for the whole event ) approx 650 euro for one person and 880 for 2 persons. If you opt for the cheaper hotel you can deduct 100 euro of the price. A fully detailed programme and the account the amounts have to be transferred to will be sent to you next week.

Wedge owner Ossi Bashiri whose own car 'White Lightning' is just coming out of a three year restoration, is planning to award "The White Lightning Cup, for Restoration, Renovation & Innovation" to anyone who has gone through the pain, suffering, and financial ruin of having stuff done on their Wedge!  It is to be a wandering cup, given back every year and then bestowed on a worthy winner/victim for the next year.

I took the old lady out for a run last night (a mere 50 miles) on the M1 and got back safely, so I'm ready for some Belgian fries, truffles and Tintin.

I succeed today to register my car 
No plate = no participation at the event Police.
Tomorrow will be a great day !
No belgian fries on the menu, nor truffles I think. But I'll take my Tintin shirt with me ;D

Unforgettable event ( once again )!

Thank you to the organisers Bernard and Vincent and their families. Special mention to Bernard's enthusiastic father!

A special price should be going to Francis, who has shipped his car ( Alvira ) from Canada to Europe for this event! What a wonderful car, even with the engine problem it had. But it made all the trip! Congratulations to his wife and his sweet daughter to have made it, too!

One of the most incredible restorations was certainly beautiful:

White Lightening:


The meeting started in a beautiful place, near Bruxelles

Genval


Many interesting people were there. Hours of fantastic discussions. I saw the bed at 4 o'clock in the morning!

George Minden in my car


White Lightening


Next day we moved to
Waterloo


Then through heavy traffic to

Bruxelles, some were lost


Then through traffic ( never take a tunnel you are not sure of in a city ) to
Atomium some more got lost


Of we went to extremely beautiful
Brugge. Everybody was there! Lagaonda' had much attention


Ladies


Pricegiving
White Lightening cup to Keith


It was a great event with great people! Hardly can wait for next year! Join us.

P.s. Not to forget father and son Dudding who organised 4 of their Lagondas to join us! Thank you!
