Default Aug 9-11: ICCCR Rallye (International Citroen Car Club Rally) UMASS Amherst

Here's the press release from their site: http://www.icccr.org
(I bolded pertinent information)
----------------------------------
The 12th International CitroŽn Car Club Rallye will take place August 9-11, 2002, on the campus of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

UMASS presents a scenic and comfortable location to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ICCCR, which will take place for the first time in North America. CitroŽn vehicles from the far flung corners of the globe will gather for this event presenting a unique opportunity to see CitroŽn cars never before displayed in North America.

CitroŽn Automobiles is a sponsor and a major participant in the ICCCR providing Museum vehicles, modern day CitroŽns and new prototypes. North Americans will have the opportunity to test drive a new CitroŽn vehicle, view historic CitroŽns in a museum setting, learn the rich history of CitroŽn and see the CitroŽn cars of the future on display. Citroen vehicles from North America, Canada, South America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, and Japan will be arranged by model around the center of the historic campus. The Student Union, adjacent to the show field houses the facilities to make this a care free event, including restaurants, lounges, vending machines, convenience store, bathrooms, ATMs, video games, post office, and coffee shop.

Amherst center is within walking distance of the campus and offers a wide array of restaurants, pubs, and coffee shops and all the other amenities to make your stay a pleasant one.

Lodging will be available on campus in student housing. The rooms contain two single beds and bathrooms are adjacent. These rooms can be rented with or without linens. A single room per night, with linens and towels, costs $30 per person, a double room, with linens and towels, costs $25 per person per night. While there is no camping at UMASS, we will be offering the rooms, without linens or towels, for those that wish to bring their sleeping bag, these rooms would cost $24 single room per night, $19 per person per night double. Of course, there are campgrounds in the area and anyone who has their heart set on camping will find pleasant campsites. Participants staying in the student housing can also enjoy meals in the campus dining hall, 3 meals per day (unlimited portions) at the cost of $25 per person, per day. Of course by staying on campus you will be able to avoid the traffic hassles usually involved with entering an ICCCR site.

A wide variety of hotel and motel rooms will also be available throughout the Pioneer Valley of Massachusetts, an area filled with typical New England villages and historic charm.

The ICCCR will be an event of historic proportions and CitroŽns will be driven and transported to the event. CitroŽns will be shipped, from Europe, by roll on / roll off carriers and will arrive in New York City, (...projected cost of automobile transport is $1,000 round trip). There they will be reunited with the owners for the drive to Amherst. New York City is served by all international airlines and will offer the most frequent and lowest cost connections for international travelers. A route book will be available for the trip to Amherst, with the choice of two routes, one by highway and the most direct, one by secondary roads and more scenic. Driving time from New York city to Amherst is approximately 3 1/2 hours (170 miles).

CitroŽn owners throughout North America are presently dealing with their own logistics in terms of getting their CitroŽn to the event. A raid from the western United States will be organized to allow CitroŽns from the West Coast to caravan to the ICCCR with kindred spirits. CitroŽn owners throughout North America are encouraged to get together with the CitroŽnistes of their state or area and enjoy the camaraderie of travelling together to the ICCCR.

Activities are now being planned for this three day event and will include a Concours d'Elegance, a Museum for the display of historically significant CitroŽn cars, a Swap Shop, and a Gala banquet.

You may wish to visit Montrťal, Canada following the ICCCR and enjoy the ambience of "La Belle Province". The following itinerary is currently suggested for the Monday August 12. You would have a choice of following one or two routes from your route book. One would be the "fast lane" which will consist of a direct highway from Amherst to Montrťal. This option would be designed for faster cars. This group would arrive in Montrťal Monday night. The other road would be on the "scenic road" drawn out to explore, of course, the beautiful New England scenery. This group will arrive in Montrťal on Tuesday in the afternoon. Montrťal is 250 miles from Amherst. At 6:30 p.m., Tuesday evening those who had previously reserved, and paid via the application form, will be asked to present themselves with their CitroŽn on Mont Royal for a Gala dinner. For the benefit of those of you who are not familiar with Montrťal, Mont Royal is a mountain right in the middle of the island of Montrťal. It is a protected scenic park. On clear days, one can see the Adirondack Mountains in Vermont. On Wednesday morning participants would be free to enjoy more of Montrťal and the province of Quebec, or travel further afield, on their own, throughout North America.

Following the ICCCR and your vacation, the duration of which is up to you, your CitroŽn would be returned to the Port in New York for transport home.

A registration package will be available and registrations will begin to be accepted on February 5, 2001. Admittance to the ICCCR will be by advance registration only.

Be a part of an unique CitroŽn experience!
---------------------------
Also from another page: http://www.icccr.org/maps&events.html

A CitroŽn Museum on Campus, exhibiting historic vehicles from the USA and Europe, will explore Citroen's excellence in design. Legendary moments in CitroŽn history in North America will be documented with archival papers, videos, and other multimedia. The premier USA unveiling of the 2002 model range of CitroŽn vehicles featuring the C3, C5, Picasso, and the Berlingo will be on display!

The internationally-recognized team of Jerry and Sylvia Hathaway of SM World will be exhibiting the SM World Record Race Car, the SM pick-up, and making its world debut, the SM World-designed-and-built trailer, with its outstanding hydraulic capabilities.

The ICCCR/USA museum will also feature historic CitroŽn vehicles never before seen in the United States:

1919 Type A, the first mass-produced car in Europe
1933 Rosalie Cabriolet
1939 Prototype of the Deux Chevaux (2 CV)
1939 Traction Avant
11 B Cabriolet
1973 SM CitroŽn Maserati of the Bandama Rally
2002 Xsara World Rally Car, winner of the 2002 Monte Carlo Rally.
-----------------

I have e-mailed them to find out if the registration is for the Rally, or to get in to see the cars.

Two things come to mind when I read this.

1. They shouldnt call it a 'Club Rallye', that's all sorts of confusing.

2. Citroen did not win the 2002 Monte Carlo Rallye, they were disqualified. Last I checked, cheaters were losers, not winners.

I know I know, Im being too critical.

Otherwise, this looks pretty cool .

I've been looking forward to this event since I first heard about it two or three years ago. Currently debating about making it a long day trip (from seacoast NH) or trying to overnight somewhere and catch two days of Citroen action.

As far as I know this is a show 'n shine'/concours-style event. No performance/timing competitions.

Test drive a new Citroen?? Cool!! Let's hope it's something more substantial than a Saxo 1.1.

And for the record, I saw two 2CVs yesterday. Both were under their own (limited) power.

To be able to go in to the museum, you need to register, per the event coordinator, and I think it's $35/pop.

Still may be interesting.

As far as I can tell the $35 registration fee is to enter your Citroen (uhhh.. none for me) and reserve a place at their gala dinner. The site has little information for spectators.

If they tried to charge $35 each just for spectators you'd hear nothing but crickets for miles.. I'll see if I can find out more about this.

Hey - I saw one of those 2CV's right in front of Exeter yesterday. Looked like it was a newer one - like a 'Charleston'.

The response from the e-mail I said I sent earlier for clarification:

Hello Keith,
The same advanced registration form is used by the General public, you would gain admittance to all events. You would receive a nice welcome bag and get preferred parking for your vehicle. Hope to see you there

I read this as: You need to pay, and admittance is by pre-registration only.

Yep, I got the same reply. $35 each for a car show? I'm sure it will be amazing, but damn! Count me out, I guess.

That's a nice one. I've been seeing that around here on the seacoast for many years. Supposedly lives in Stratham.
