Thank you for the invitation to post on your forum! I apologize for a few things right away, first for posting in English on a French forum (desole!) and for maybe posting in the wrong area (moderator please move as needed), and for being a tourist and wanting to meet local Parisians that own MX-5's (as a pedestrian relying on public transport).


But... I am very excited for my next visit to France and am hoping to organize a small, little, tiny MX-5 mini-meet while transiting through Paris to fly back home to New York.


My time in Paris will be very limited. I will probably arrive Monday, August 1st, have a whole day of being a tourist on Tuesday, August 2nd and fly out early morning Wednesday, August 3rd.


I will spend three weeks in Europe volunteering as a marshal (commissaire) for a few Motorsport events: DTM at Zandvoort (Netherlands), WEC 6h at Nurburgring (Germany) and Spa 24h at Spa-Francorchamps (Belgium). My goal is to meet MX-5 owners in each country I visit, even though most of the time I will be stuck at the race track and not very mobile.


My previous marshaling trips allowed me to do MX-5 mini-meets in Southeast Asia and the South Pacific. I organized very successful get togethers in Bangkok, Thailand; Singapore; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Sydney, Australia and Auckland, New Zealand. I would like to do the same on my trip to Europe.


I realize it will be hard because I'm only in town on a week day (not weekend when more people are free, but I'm happy to meet after work or during lunch), and that its harder for me to go to the suburbs to meet with people as I rely on public transportation in the city. But I think it's possible!


So if anyone is interested, please get in touch! I would like to take some pictures of the meet to post on my blog.


Thank you... Merci!

Hi fellow motorsport marshal :hello:

I don't live in Paris so it's not for me, but that's a great initiative, I hope some parisians will organize something !

I went on your website, impressive ! You attended to a lot of races ! :o

Thank you! I am just getting started with this hobby.

And by coincidence I bought my MX-5 as a direct result of marshaling... now besides travel to events, watching racing which I love and enjoying delicious food everywhere I go, I have a new goal to meet with fellow MX-5 owners... somehow it's all connected.

I have been very fortunate with all of my experiences and I'm happy to share them with others to encourage Motorsport enthusiast to consider volunteering also :beer:


PS. if there is interest in other parts of France I may be able to donate a few euros to SNCF to meet briefly with owners there... I am limited on time, but I've done crazy things before. :lol:

Currently, I am only "marshaling" (is it a real word ? lol) for the Monaco GP. But who knows ? Maybe we'll meet on a racetrack one day :beer:

Yes Marshaling is correct. And Monaco GP is very impressive! I'm sure we will have a chance to meet at a track somewhere, it's a very small world.

I have some family in Clermont-Ferrand and it's been my goal to marshal a small club race at Charade next time I visit Auvergne... hasn't happened yet, but it's on my to-do list for sure.

I am very excited there is interest in this idea!

Really looking forward to the trip now, it will have a different dimension than all my previous trips to Paris! (or France for that matter)

To be on a safe side I think Tuesday, August 2nd would be best.


just in case SNCF or Thallys decide to go on strike Monday, August 1st and I have to look for other means to get from Belgium to France :aie:



...but, if Monday is better for everyone else, I will try extra hard to arrive Paris early on Monday!
