Upcoming season, what's on the agenda?

There is lots to do for a Citroen enthusiast this season. In May there are two events next to each other with only a couple of days between. CitroMobile is first in the weekend of 4th en 5th of May again in the Expo centre at Vijfhuizen. CitroMobile is a big event for the Citroën enthusiast. The weekend after that is the National meeting in France. This years National is held from the 8 till 12 May near Le Mans. Last year there were 3.500 2CV's to see and lot's of events, shops and all this in the lovely French countryside.

In the middle of the Summer it again time for a World meeting for 2CV's.. Always a big happening, remeber the one in Salbris two years ago? Around 7000 2CV's at the same please! You don't want to miss that do you? This year's World Meeting is held in Alcaniz, Spain. A terrific reason to plan a holiday to Spain this year!

Burton Car Company is expanding big time

The car industry is on rough grounds at the moment and we decided to expand big time! Because there is a high demand on good quality parts and overhauled engines, gearboxes and other stuff we had a big ware house problem. Adding a whopping 3000 square metres of storage and expanding the overhaul workshop 3 times we hope to have enough space for the next couple of years. We will open the new storage and workshop on the next open door day on the 30th of June. In the fall we will also expand our shop.

HKVHKD rally 2013

The HKVHKD rally is maybe the toughest rally in the Netherlands and is celebrating it's 10th anniversary this year. In the first weekend of March 40 Burton's and their equips drove to Sauerland and spend the weekend racing around. The finish on Sunday was at Burton Car Company in Zutphen. Probably the most curious rule is that a roof is not allowed and will cost you the maximum amount of penalty's. With 40 centimetres of snow it was a rally to remember.. Luckily we still have the pictures: the top
