Trip to Paris, July 2019

Hugh Howard (Cobham 92) has instigated the OS Classic Car Touring Club in the hope of arranging an additional Classic Car based meeting for Old Stoics, alongside the annual Speech Day gathering.

Hugh writes, “Designed for fun, I would like to suggest that our inaugural weekend tour is to join the 12th Transversée De Paris Estivale, a one day tour of Paris (taking in all the famous sites), starting at Chateau Vincennes and finishing Terrasse de l’ Obdervatoire, with 700 other classic cars from Germany, Belgium, Holland and, of course, France but last year there were NONE from the UK. Who better than Old Stoics to represent Great Britain in these unusual times!

Draft Itinerary:

  • Friday, 19 July: Arrive in Paris at a designated hotel with suitable parking. Evening drinks will be held for those taking part. Old Stoics living in and around Paris will also be invited to attend.
  • Saturday, 20 July: A day to explore Paris, followed by an OS Dinner at a Parisian nightspot.
  • Sunday, 21 July: 12th Transversée De Paris Estivale Rally, across historic back streets and grandest thoroughfares of Paris (picnic lunch in central Paris).

We want to gauge how many might be interested in participating. If you think you would like to join us, please register your potential interest at oldstoic@stowe.co.uk

In addition to the proposed trip to Paris, Hugh is looking for interested volunteers to form a committee to help run the Club. If you would like to get involved or would like further details, please email oldstoic@stowe.co.uk
