Upcoming event: Alcala Del Valle 29th August 2015

Alcala del Valle. If you all remember a few months back I told you all that last year six cars went to this event and we had a fabulous time. Yesterday I received a phone call from them to tell me that they are again organising the event this year on the Saturday 29th August. As there are some beautiful towns in the area I was thinking that perhaps some of us may want to spend a few extra days and tour these towns.

My suggestion is that we leave on the Friday, Saturday is the Rally, then we can use Sunday to tour the area and return either Monday or Tuesday. Its your choice and if you want or cannot stay then you come back whenever is best for you. However it would help if you could let me know your intentions so I can plan ahead. There is only one hotel in Alcala and the cost is about 50 euros a night or less if we can get a deal.

So Guys and Girls, have a think and let me know as soon as you can.

Drive-It Day 2015 – Sunday 26th April. – CANCELLED DUE TO INCLEMENT WEATHER

fbhvc[1]
As part of this annual national event launched and publicised by The Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC), it commemorates the 64 cars that left London on a 1000 mile trial in April 1900.  The Association in Gibraltar has also kept up with this tradition for many years.
Drive IT Day encourages owners of all vehicles 25 years old or older, two, three or four wheels out onto the roads for the day.
Drivers and passengers of such vehicles arriving at our clubhouse in Windmill Hill  for about 10.30am for a coffee or light refreshment.  Coffee and water are free but any other needs to be paid for.  At about 11.30 we shall leave Windmill Hill and drive around Gibraltar for about an hour or so.  We shall then go to Ocean Village and display our vehicles on the promenade whilst we have some lunch.   We decided to go to the newly opened Restaurant, The Ocean, for a selection of tapas for lunch. Problem is we need to know who is coming so we can reserve spaces so please get in touch if you wish to attend the lunch.

2015 Rally application forms now available!

Attached are this year’s entry forms for our Rally in May.  This is the one event in the year that we ask all our members to participate.  It is extremely important for the Association that we put on a good show and exhibit maximum number of Vehicles. Please remember that by Vehicles we also mean motorcycles.  We expect many visiting clubs and individuals to participate this year and by showing your vehicle off at the Rally we show others what a wonderful wealth of Vehicles we have in Gibraltar.Non Members: GCVA Entry form 2015 non members
