2pm to 8am, Thursday 13 to Monday 17 July 2017
A number of members enjoyed this classic bike racing event in 2016 so we’re repeating it again in 2017.
Chimay is in Belgium and the event is held on a road circuit similar to those in Ireland, you can get up right close to the action all around the circuit. Practice is held all day Friday and Saturday morning with races held on the Saturday afternoon and all day Sunday.
It’s a really friendly event and access to the pits area is available throughout the event. Bikes entering the races include BSA Gold Stars, Manx Nortons, AJS 7Rs, Patons, etc. as well as smaller and larger capacity racing bikes from the past.
In 2016 a weekend pass for the event cost €30 at the circuit or €25 in advance, daily entrance was €20. Prices for 2017 have yet to be announced but shouldn’t be much more. Passes can be ordered by the tour leader if required.
We are staying at an Ibis hotel in Fourmies, France which is a short ride over the border from the Chimay circuit. It has 30 rooms and Individuals must book direct with the hotel via the website below for the nights they wish to stay.
The cost for a room only is approx £56 per night, breakfast is available in the hotel and there is a restaurant next door for evening meals. Fourmies town is a short ride away with a number of restaurants.
Fourmies is an easy days ride from Calais and you can stay for the full four nights or shorter or longer if you prefer.
