Historic Racing at Winton in May

Rob Allen, 27 Jun 2019

Club Member and treasurer-for-life Bruce Culliford sent these photos from the event.

Bruce tells us the photos were not his, but that he was informed that the weather was excellent on the day, and the racing likewise.

These photos of two DSes (one non-factory, of course) were of interest.

Definitely not a Citroën parked next to the utility, but perhaps a Singer?

An Electric Citroën is Real

Rob Allen, 8 Jan 2018

For those who doubted, the eMehari is not just a concept.

While we were away in Portugal, last October, we visited the ancient town of Sintra, just North of Lisbon. As I was wandering around the narrow, winding and steep streets, this little eMehari drove past. There were several of them there, all for hire and seemingly quite popular with the ...

Recent correspondence from the Motors sales manager for Citroën, Gerrard Quinn, indicates that Motors has been told that they will no longer be the Tasmanian agent. Gerrard has been an excellent local ambassador for the brand, and has been a great supporter of the Club during his time in the ...

After 4 years ownership and a bit over 70,000km of road travel, my Citroën DS3 DSport has gone to other owners in exchange for a new DS Automobiles DS3 DSport.

Sadly, I think, the DS range has been hived off as a separate brand, with no mention of Citroën ...
