My Renault 15 is one such car where the influence of the "option mag" race tuning street style has touched the 70's style of my R15. It has a blend of racing tech and the classic feel of the French 70's coupe that really gives it a distinctive purposeful look.
I have always had an interest in Renaults. From a young age I helped my
father restore 60's, 70's Renaults, this extended to my R15 and it's evolution
into a tarmac-racing car. Over the years I have competed in various motorsport
events in my classic 70’s tarmac R15 (competed in Dutton’s Grand Rally Car
Rally, 1996, 1998, 2000.) and various hill climbs like Rob Roy and racing
tracks like Phillip Island and Calder Park in Australia.
I also own an unrestored Alpine A310 and have in the past also owned such cars as Ford XB coupe, 1968 R16TS etc.
The last images on the page are of the Gordini Day in La Chatre from a few years back where I traveled to France and had a fantastic two days in the sunny French country side seeing all the cars in abundance in their natural surroundings that I had grown up with. Its always a wonderful time mixing with like minded people. One event I hope to go to is the French Blue day in Japan, it seems just as amazing on the other side of the world.
