The best combined car/motorcycle event in the world is coming May 9th and 10th at the Montlhéry speed bowl, for Vintage-Revival Monthléry. I've attended both the prior events for pre-war cars and motorcycles, and having ridden both cars and bikes on the track is an experience not to be missed. The quality of the machinery is always world-class, with invaluable historic racers hammered around the historic banking, one of only two full-size concrete speed bowls left intact (the other being Sitges in Spain) from the heyday of concrete and wooden banked racing. My reports from the 2011 event, and the 2013 event, can be read via the links, and if they don't have you dreaming of France in May, you're on the wrong website! I'll be there reporting again this year, so expect another batch of Bugattis, MacEvoys, Zeniths, Amilcars, etc, and an interesting cast of characters too.
