Tours for 2020

Old Lane Adventures organises and leads self-drive historic motoring tours for owners/drivers of cars that have a classic or historic appeal.

Our trips are always to places where the roads allow us to enjoy the thrills of driving, without any of the expense or risk of racing or rallying.

We aim to make your trip both memorable and exciting - a true adventure.

We have these planned tours for 2020 :-

3rd July - 6th July 2020,
Supporting the Talbot Team racing at Le Mans Classic 2020

You are invited to join the Talbot Owners' Club visit to Le Mans Classic,
3rd - 6th July 2020.

Over the weekend of 21st/22nd June 1930, PL3 and PL4, the two Talbot AO90's, achieved a spectacular result in the Le Mans 24-hour race, beating every other car except two Bentleys driven by power packs almost three times the size of the diminutive 90. PL3, crewed by Lewis and Eaton, was the outright winner on Index of Performance. Now, ninety years later, July 2020 sees all three of the famous 90's returning to the Sarthe circuit, with plans for PL2, PL3 and PL4 all to be taking part in Plateau 1, the pre-war grid.

Dordogne Tour - 6-13 July 2020.

The Dordogne. This magnificent river flows from its source at Puy de Sancy, the highest point of the Massif Central, to the Bay of Biscay near Bordeaux. Our adventure takes us from sea to source, from vineyards to volcanoes, along roads ideal for our cars. On our journey we may encounter hazards in the form of St Emilion vineyards, spectacular gorges and mountains where the views are not to be missed, and volcanoes, described as 'dormant' rather than 'extinct', even though the last volcanic activity was 11,000 years ago!

Provisional Itinerary:

Starting Point:For those coming from Le Mans on Monday 6th July, we travel through rural France to our overnight halt at Relais de Comodoliac, St Junien, on the Vienne River in the Limousin. About 185 miles.

For those who have not been with us at Le Mans, you may either join us at St Junien on Monday evening, or arrive at Hotel Les Secrets, Salleboeuf, on Monday, a day early, for the same price.

Austrian Alps, 10th - 17th September 2020

The last time we visited this part of the world was in 2015 on our 'Alps East to West' tour.

We start this fantastic week with three days around Gröbming, the operational centre for the Ennstal Classic, with great roads and scenery to enjoy. Then through the spectacular Austrian mountains to Lienz followed by following the Dolomite roads through the South Tyrol.

We look forward to motoring with you in 2020.
