Arno posted this put out by Bernard Bourasseau on FB. Rings a bell? From last year? Image

This is from the Dieselkrad site, not much more information I'm afraid,
"Here the poster for the meeting in France.
Here is the profile of the organizer Bernard, where he has released, not publicly.
Unfortunately I do not know more than that it says:
Location: Challans Department 85 Base de Loisiers Planet Racing (should be here: https://goo.gl/maps/RxcBN32dYfA2) ..."

I went to last years rally and remember Bernard saying it was at a new location this year. Ian

Hi Dave,

Unlikely to French Rally this year, I have a few things going on and will probably be too busy....
I enjoyed the rides out last year but if it wasn't for Burt turning up my lack of French would have made it socially awkward.

Ian

P.S Still trying to arrange time to visit The Knock.... might need to be a fly by this year.

I won't make it either. I'm up to my neck in work. Unfortunately.

Great rally with lots of miles covered and interesting run-outs every day. Same as Dave .... home sunburnt and knackered but happy. Bike ran very well with no problems but the chain and sprockets are now officially totally f*cked.

I'd recommend this French rally to anyone - well organised, good food and good fun :)

Definitely coming over next time, on the condition that my bike is done(-ish). Sounds like I missed a great time.
