Councours d'elegance, Onar Village, Kyrenia 6th -8th September 2019
A small group of 4 cars met early on Friday morning at Santa Barbara in Argaka to begin our adventure to the 5th Concours Classica in Kyrenia. We had a fairly short journey to Kato Pyrgos where we stopped , sorted out insurances and grabbed a coffee. The crossing over the border was quick and painless and this time Richard managed to navigate over the last speed bump without losing his exhaust. We then continued on towards Kyrenia via Morfou keeping a close eye out for speed cameras as well as enjoying the lovely sea views and the ever- changing countryside. Arrival at Onar village was just before 1 o’clock and once booked in we all enjoyed a leisurely lunch on the covered terrace while waiting for others to arrive. A lovely cool breeze and lack of humidity made a welcome change from Paphos and the Effes beer slipped down easily. During the afternoon a number of other classic cars arrived including the remainder of the Paphos club contingent, consisting of 12 club members and 8 guests. The evening was spent down at Kyrenia harbour where we were able to sample good food , fine wines and even more Effes with a backdrop of the castle and fishing boats. Saturday dawned clear and bright and the morning was spent preening cars, shopping or just relaxing in the pool. Classic cars continued to arrive throughout the day and judging started around 5 o’clock. The Gala dinner around the pool was an excellent buffet and was followed by the organiser’s speeches and awards. The club once again had great success with members’ cars receiving awards in the following categories: Best British car 1st Richard Griffiths Morgan +8 2nd Steve Edwards Rolls Royce Best German car 1st Ian Frith Mercedes 180SL Best Japanese car 1st Neil Wishart Toyota Supra We would like to thank Tamer for once again inviting us to the event and The Chairman received a presentation plaque on behalf of the attending club members. We would like to thank Mehmet and the Onar Village team for making us so welcome and keeping us fed and watered for the 3 days we were there. On a final note, if you haven’t yet attended this event you are missing a treat. It’s a great way to spend down time with like minded people, surrounded by classic cars in a lovely setting. So clear a space in your diary in September 2020 for the 6th Concours Classica at Onar Village. Sue Griffiths
