We had the privilege to host the International Rally this year 2001 and it was held in june in Saint Pompon (no "t" Mr Michelin!), in the Dordogne. Our program : good food, saturday and sunday runs on superb roads in the St Pompon - Belvès - Le Bugue triangle. Thanks to a lot of local help (mainly from the St Pompon and Belvès townships), to the fantastic landscapes and to the sun, not forgetting the pool (mandatory!), good music (good vibrations)... and also to all those who came and rode from everywhere and sometimes very far away countries.
