The 27th edition of the Autobrocante Festival will be held on 5-6 October 2019 in the Manoir de l’Automobile et des Vieux Métiers in Lohéac (near Rennes).
The FCRA (Fédération Française des clubs Renault et Alpine) will be organising, with support from Renault Classic, a huge gathering of turbocharged petrol engine cars to celebrate the 40th anniversary of Renault’s first Formula 1 win at the 1979 French Grand Prix, the first time a turbo-powered car had prevailed in the motorsport’s top flight category.
The weekend will provide visitors with the chance to discover the key, pioneering role played by Renault in the introduction and operation of turbo engines in Formula 1, and the transfer of its racing-derived technology into its production models.
Many events and activities will be held:
- Track sessions every day for registered participants
- Parades of registered cars (one on each day)
- Display of turbo models from the Renault Classic collection
- Appearances by well-known drivers
- Renault Classic demonstrations
- Autograph-signing sessions
To celebrate this anniversary, owners of turbo engine (petrol) Alpine or Renault vehicles that are more than 25 years old are invited to take part in this exceptional event with their cars.
