    Steve, mail me when you want, I'll be at TT this year !

    Why am I reading your posts in a French accent?

    Sometimes is around 4 times a year. That's not my job, (I'm just doing this to share my passion), but as I do "special" races (there is nos road races in France), it's very interesting for them to have very differents topics, and for readers to travel with their magazine.

    Hey Morgan.
    The container used to ship the bikes to & from NZ for this event belongs to my employer (a race team)
    I discussed this thread with the team manager & am assured you will have a space in the container for next year.
    He also remembers the Voxan parked at team France's camp at the TT.
    Maybe you could see if Estelle & Melanie would like to come to race also?

    Hi sidecar bob,
    Please excuse-me for the late answer, the schedule is a nightmare !
    Thank you very much for the response, it's really great ! I maybe have a solution for the Voxan in France, helped by one of my friend, and things started to sounds good.
    I will contact Estelle ASAP to know if she will be intersted to ride there.

    Could it be possible to have an idea of the cost of the container travel to and from new zeland, please ?

    Thank you very much for your help !

    Morgan

    I understand the container cost is a box of beer paid directly into my workshop fridge.
    Early arrival & help to devan container & assist with all aspects of team preparation is probably the best payment you can provide..

    Your answer is just incredible... Thank you so much !
    I just phoned Estelle, and she told me that it was in her plans to come to race in New Zealand. We are now working together, and with your help, it will be more than a project.
    I will exchange with her all of the informations that the organisers and you gave to me. She told me that a man named Karl Cox spoke with her about this race, and about a way to obtain a place in a container. Is he your boss ?

    For the other part of my project, my friend Maxence contact his friend Manu, who own a very special Voxan, to try to find a way to to lend me his bike, and to give me lessons to repair the bike in case of trouble.

    For sure, we will arrived very early, because I will come with my wife and my children, and it will be a unique and a fantastic opportunity for us to discover the farewest country from France. And for sure, I will do all what I can to help the team for the preparation.

    You know, I'm in my office right now... And what happen is just incredible, and I just want to leave my desk to go to build this wonderfull project !!!!

    Many thanks

    Morgan

    I work for Carl Cox, however my boss is Gavin, & it is more likely you have spoken to him.
    My wife would like an opportunity to race against the French girls.
    Here is a pic of her.

    That's perfect, I was afraid that Estelle was engaged with another people, and she told me that she wants to continue what she started about her NZ plans.
    I think it should be something wonderfull, and a great moment ! Estelle is really a nice girl, and so fast ! It will be a great challenge to race with your wife !

    I had the opportunity to talk to some of the older BEARS guys this weekend. No one knows who's got the local Voxon now. It hasn't been seen for several years. Sorry Morgan.
    Reason is a tool - remember where you left it..... The late, great, John Clarke
