Rallye des Jonquilles 2013

The 14th April saw us take part in our third road book rallye in Northern France.  Here are a few pictures.

Driving along the northern French coast on the Saturday.

Our first visit to Belgium in the Tiger was for a lunch stop, just over the border in Diksmuide.

Diksmuide is a pleasant town with parking on the square and restaurants and cafes conveniently located around the edge.

After lunch we visited the local trenches from World War 2.  They are really well preserved.  Very sobering to visit and imagine what life must have been like at that time.

The rallye itself was on the Sunday.  Around 150 cars queuing for the start line.

The mid-morning stop for coffee was at a local golf club.

As always a very nice three course meal was served before the final stage of the day.

Ready to depart after lunch.

A beautiful afternoon, ready to start the journey home.  Happy days!
