About the Author

Described by the French magazine La Vie de l'Auto as "The most French of English journalists", Julian Parish loves cars as much as he loves France. During twenty years in the country he has owned a range of British, American and German classics and sports cars. He has personally visited nearly all the museums, shows and motorsport events described in this guide. After a career in publishing and international software development, Julian is now a full-time motoring writer and translator from French and German into English. He is a member of the Guild of Motoring Writers.


This book was originally published in 2015 and has been fully updated in 2017 and provides you with all you need to know to enjoy a visit to France with a motoring twist. Given the limited space available for each attraction, I thought the results were excellent; in a few words and with enough colour photos, there is enough information to whet one's appetite. This is an excellent book and every car enthusiast who visits France should but a copy.- Citroenet; Forget Brexit, France is still the best place for the classic enthusiast. To help make the best of your trip, Julian Parish's invaluable guide to all-things auto in France is vital, sporting 11 new events, 130 new photos, live events calendar and digital POI downloads for satnavs. Motorsports, museums, show, and events including Classic British Welcome (classicbw.org), the day before Le Mans is here.- Classic Motoring; Despite its small size, designed to fit in a glovebox, this handy guide succeeds in being both exhaustive and unrivalled in the clarity of its presentation. An impressive piece of work, supplemented by an event calendar and index at the end of the book. The essential tool for the enthusiast. - Lettonie. Parish is a correspondent for the classic car press and has lived in France for many years. His book is driven by the first hand knowledge and energy of the true enthusiast and written so compellingly, that simply leafing through it the reader is filled with the desire to get across the Channel at the first opportunity. Logically laid out on a region by region basis and enhanced by excellent photography, this encyclopaedic book should be in every car fan's glovebox. - Kieron Fennelly. Here's a jolly useful and detailed little companion for any of you travelling in France. Subtitled 200 Things for Car Enthusiasts to See and Do, you may be a little surprised to know- as I was- just how many shows, museums, galleries, exhibitions and rallies France offered for those travellers with an interest in automobiles.- Big End. As our closest geographical neighbour, France remains as an immense attraction for drivers of all types, whether holiday making, attending car club expeditions, or just traipsing across the Channel for a slice of relative Gallic freedom. Whether we remain in the EU, or not, France will always offers a wealth of attractions, most notably to motorists, either travelling there by ferry, or via the Channel tunnel. Naturally I always arm myself with Michelin maps and the firms restaurant and accommodation guide, as well as the most recent sites directory, whenever tackling French trips. However, a new addition to my car's glovebox will be this marvellous guide. Colourful illustrated across several neatly and practically filed subjects, from Museums, to Shows & Tours, Marketplaces, Motorsport and even Racing Circuits, it is well detailed, seasonally appropriate and editorially interesting. Divided into five regions, each chapter carries a wealth of information that answers all manner of motorists questions. It is fun, useful and a must-have for any planned French excursion.- Iain P W Robertson. Do you go on holiday to France and want to know where there is something to do or see in your car? Buy this booklet. It is packed with museums, contest of elegances and tours, fairs, interesting shops, sports events and circuit locations. Neatly classified by region with all necessary info, such as address, phone number, website and overview cards.- Klassiek & techniek.
