Meeting of the Dutch Citroën Visa Sport Club, September 11, 2004
After two years of silence, the Citroën Visa Sport Club organized another meeting in Heerhugowaard. With only a small number of driveable fast Visas left in the Netherlands, the club is doomed to remain very small. Nevertheless, the collective does it best to stay alive. Part of the well organized 2004 meeting was the election of the most original and the most beautiful car. The expert jury told the competitors some very valuable facts about their cars. At the end of the day, the organizers and participants could look back at e very satisfactory meeting.
Left: the world of fast Visas is only a small one. Cars present were one GT (mine), two 14 Ss, two GTIs, a GT Spirit, a 14 TRS and two 11 RE Décapotables (not exactly fast, but welcome all the same). Right: barbecue lasted nearly all day!
Far left: DJ helped atmosphere a lot. Left: GT being examined
Right: the Visa Sport Club uses a large workspace, owned by one of the board members. Some of the cars parked there await restoration...like the Trophée shown far right
Left: probably not all fast Visas will live on. Right: in September 2001 I test drove a GTI. The testdrive only lasted halfway, until the car broke down and had to be towed back. In Heerhugowaard, I saw it back. It had never turned a wheel since my drive in it, showing electrical difficulties that were to complex to be solved. There are however plans to bring it back on the road.
Far left: Sander Middendorp was the winner of the day, grabbing both prices for most beautiful and most original car with his well preserved 14 S (left).
