This event has just been POSTPONED on the ACT Motoring Events Calendar
A gathering of French and British cars, including some bicycles, will be held at Rond Terrace to commemorate the Battle of Waterloo in 1815. The event is being sponsored by Shannon’s Insurance. In past years, the event has attracted up to 100 cars and around 150 participants depending on the weather. Entry to the event is open to the general public.
The event is being organized by the Renault Owners Club of Canberra (ROCC) in conjunction with the Peugeot Association of Canberra (PAC) and sponsors.
Entry to and egress from the event will be via Constitution Ave and Macquarie Drive and then via the gate near Blundell’s Cottage.
Freestanding directional signs will be at the intersections of Anzac Parade with Constitution Avenue and Constitution Avenue and Macquarie Drive and at the entrance near Blundell’s Cottage to designate the entry point for the event. The sign at the entrance will designate an advisory speed limit of 5kph. An official in a fluoro vest will be at the entrance to guide cars to their respective locations.
Public parking will be directed to the hard standing area just south of Rond Pond at the end of Anzac Parade.
All cars will be parked on the hard stand red granite area and well back from the RG Menzies walkway on the lake edge as public access to the area is not restricted. Drip trays are required.
Coffee, tea and drink facilities will be available. Food will be provided by a BBQ run by the PAC next to the coffee van. Each will have waste disposal facilities. Toilet facilities are located to the west in Commonwealth Park.
Door prizes comprising bottles of “The Arrogant Frog” will be available as door prizes to be drawn towards the end of the event. So stick around in case you are a winner. These are donated by Shannons. Otherwise the event is to be glass free.
Depending on forecasts, the event will be cancelled if there are forecast high or gusty winds or if there is rain. Advice as to any cancellation will be posted the day before on the ACT Council of Motor Clubs website and via email to participating clubs.
