That's a shame; though for some reason your name hadn't found its way onto the list - don't know how that happened.

Please count me and the missus in again. Breakfast/lunch/whatever offering in Almkerk for those travelling via Ijmuiden still stands.

I've been informed you're on the Dutch list Jaaps so as not to confuse our lists I'll keep you off the UK one.

For those in contact with the organisers, is anything actually happening on the Monday or does the event finish on Sunday like last time?

Trying to organise the return crossing and don’t really want to book and find out I could’ve come back a day sooner.


This is how it should have come out of Torino!

The flyer has 14, 15 and 16th June listed which is Fri to Sunday so I'd suggest nothing on the Monday.

Do we know if activities start in the evening on friday or during the day? Implying we will leave on wednesday or thursday. We will stay in a hotel or camping halfway the trip. Preferrably at a place where other fccuk members will spend the night.

The current information I have (which is a few weeks old actually) is that there is an intention to have something happening on Friday afternoon, possibly from 1400 hrs. However it is understood that some people will have driven long distances and may wish to 'chill' during the afternoon, and the evening is unlikely to have a formal dinner planned.

I'm really hoping we have some more news soon, everyone's patience is really appreciated.

Unfortunately our plan (turned Upside Down) from Scotland will begin a week early so I guess the chances of meeting any coupsters that early whilst we make our way through Netherlands, Germany and Switzerland will be slim but we are still hoping someone's got an early route planned like us

and if not see you early Thursday 13th in Torino

Just wondering if there has been any further details from our Italian friends?

I was looking back at the 2019 thread and see that this year was expected to be a big one like the 20th anniversary - I hope that’s true. I also hope we are allowed on the Lingotto roof!

I’m so looking forward to the mountain passes and drop into Turin!

I thought the garden planters were to slow you down, like a chicane! Either way it would be good to stand up there.

It seems that all plans, such as they are, have been put in place for Friday to Sunday; no further details I'm afraid.

There is still the possibility of something on for Monday but nothing definite as yet.

The website which is due to be made available to us in March is in the process of being designed.

The organisers are waiting for municipality of Turin to say whether there will be costs for parking and police, and when this is advised the poster/website will be uploaded with the programme and costs.

It's estimated there will be 60-70 crews attending on the Italian side. If there is a cap on numbers - to be confirmed - then that will likely mean doubling-up crews in Turin but we very much hope that all those who have committed will be able to attend.

The website will be uploaded after numbers have been confirmed with police probably in March.

Wow Simon - 60 to 70 crews from Italy is a lot then add c 20 from the UK probably leaves little wriggle room for any other crews! So there may be additional costs for attendance? I know you'll not have the answers but must try and stay positive laugh

Thanks Simon. Well, its March next week, so bring on the info.

It would be great to able to book the crossings and get the hotels en-route sorted too.

I see that in 2019, our Italian friends recommended a couple of hotels and negotiated good prices. Would you expect this to happen again?

Yes, that is indeed my understanding - one is earmarked to the north-west of the city, with good parking and prices somewhat lower than closer in.
