Renault-Club Meeting Sep. 24.-26. 1999
The third meeting of Renault-fans in sequence took place on the last weekend
in September 1999. Altogether more than hundred attendants and less than 40 cars of
different age were present. On the agenda of this day were 5 prize contests, counted
towards total estimation of Renault Master attribute which was awarded the first time this
year at all. While the first three contests were oriented on being familiar in handling
the car the next two checked the acceleration up to 400 m on a leased airport and finally
the know-how of car owners at all.
Even though the weather forecast for this weekend was comparatively
optimistic the weather was false to us on saturday noon. A thick rain began and the
"Graceful Ride" and sprint were driven while wet. Nevertheless anything wrong is
for something right. Participants got the chance to check the behaviour of their cars
under extreme conditions without risk - who wants to ride in full speed on a water layer
under common traffic conditions?
The last skill ride was driven on a wet layer and during a rain too and
since it was a high speed run it was an ideal chance to check one's car under extreme
adhesive conditions during heavy acceleration, braking and bending.
Rain gust attacked our vessels but did not break down our sports spirit.
Renault-men (Homo renaultis) proved again, that cold and bad weather cannot break their
fun. After returning from the airport we were in the camping site awaited by country-band,
heated restaurant and a fresh roasted piglet. The Renault fun continued till early morning
