18th – 20th May 2018
Chateau Impney – you need to be there for the celebration of the “Frogeye Sprite”.
Don’t miss the 60th Birthday Party of this iconic car, first unveiled on the 20th May 1958 at the Monaco Grand Prix. We have secured this iconic venue to celebrate that moment in Healey History and we would like you to be there.
We have a weekend of fun and excitement planned and wish to extend our invitation to all Healey Clubs over the weekend. We have agreed a deal with Chateau Impney and secured rooms both in the main building and the annex areas just besides the main building. There are also budget hotels in the area that will provide for guests wishing just to buy day tickets for the Sat. & Sun. activities. Sunday will be arranged as a family fun day with Gymkhana, Concours and a chance to see Healey Hillclimb drivers demonstrate their skills up the hill. We hope to see some historic cars ascend the hill plus any Healey driver wishing to run up the hill will get the opportunity to do it, although under strict conditions We plan to put together a weekend that will bring together all the Healey / Sprite community and it will be a great family fun filled weekend to celebrate this great British Sports Car.
This event will not only form the club’s annual International Healey Weekend in 2018 but will also be a celebration of the Sprite’s 60th Birthday. It will be the first time the Austin Healey Club has opened its doors and invited the other Healey clubs to one of its most important meetings. As we all have a common interest in the marque and a love of the Healey, it is time to express this love of the Healey marque together and enjoy a great weekend as friends and fellow enthusiasts.
We anticipate that demand will out strip availability so we strongly recommend that you book early to avoid disappointment. Booking forms will be available in the November issue of Revcounter and online booking will be possible via the clubs website from November 2017.
