29th May - 1st June 2020: Laon Historique
This event dates back to 1991 and has grown hugely from the first year when only 30 cars in total took part.
These days a huge cavalcade of up to 600 cars descend on the medieval town of Laon in Northern France. Your Club first went to this beautiful medieval city in 1996, which was quickly followed by 1997!
We revisited it in 2008 — and we are heading back to visit the delights of this rural area of France in 2020 with several members already having booked in

Further details from the organisers are posted here in English.
If you have never ventured 'abroad' with your classic Honda this is a good event to 'break your duck' as it is relatively easy to get to and located in a rural part of France where volumes of traffic are low. The whole region welcomes the classic car visitors with open arms making this a very popular and special event. Its hard to get lost on the organised tour as the locals put up signs pointing the way and the organisers even have motor cycle outriders stopping the traffic at tricky junctions!
Along the route you will be cheered by enthusiastic locals some 6 deep at the side of the road in places!
Couple this with the bargain prices on offer by Continental Car Tours — and it's almost cheaper than staying at home!
Please note — there are many options in terms of accommodation as the tour firm wish to cater for all budgets. For the same reason we are not going to a specific hotel as a Club. We can all meet each day wherever we stay in the town or surrounding areas.
