CITROËN CENTENARY EVENT
a thousand cars for a century of Citroën
Coombe Park, Warwickshire CV3 2AB
31 May - 2 June 2019
We are now just weeks away from the major Citroen event in the UK in this centenary year – so it is time to book your place in this unique meeting if you have not already done so. Come and celebrate one hundred years of Citroen with us – this can never be repeated!
Well over 500 cars are already booked-in, comprising a diverse mix from all four clubs and more, including international enquiries from as far afield as Australia! But this is just the start, because we are aiming to bring together 1,000 cars, and we want you to be part of it!
Why book in advance?
It saves you money, because the on-the-gate prices will be higher. We can email you direct with updates. Also, the more advance income we have, the more features we can add to your event – we’d really like to know that you are going to be joining us!
The advance booking price is £45 (notwithstanding any current discount codes) for a car and all passengers for the entire event including camping - arrive on Thursday afternoon and stay until Monday morning.
If you can’t make it for the full event, the advance single day rate is £20 for any one day for a car and all passengers.

A unique Centenary event...
We’ve said it before, but this actually is two events for the price of one, as a blend of a ‘conventional’ rally and a mobile event in conjunction with MotoFest - it’s everything you’re used to, and something else that you’re not! One thing is certain: this event will remain unique – there can only be one Centenary!
First of all, this is the opportunity for all British Citroen owners to come together and celebrate 100 years of Citroen car manufacture. This is for people above all, then the cars. As enthusiasts, it is vital that we continue to support and promote the Citroen heritage, as indeed has always been the case.
Our aim is to bring the marque’s heritage and achievements to the attention of the wider public by means of an outward-facing event. The location of Coventry is ideal for this, as the UK’s ‘motor city’ and Citroen UK’s base, with its central location and its role in hosting the hugely-popular MotoFest event ...
... for everyone
• Every Citroen-related vehicle is welcome – of every year, and including all kit, one-off and modified cars
• The event is open to everyone - you do not need to be a member of any club, register or group
• Camping is included, but there will be no electrical hook-ups (except for medical reasons by prior arrangement)
The bigger picture…
Although our Centenary is intended to be primarily a national rather than an international event, we are receiving increasing bookings from international visitors – and they are very welcome.
Citroen UK are providing generous support for the Centenary, so let’s show our appreciation with a really exceptional display!
For 2019, the extensive MotoFest publicity is leading with the Citroen Centenary story – we are becoming an integral part of the whole festival, attracting wide-ranging media coverage, and this part of our Centenary will be totally unique!
