2CV Worldmeeting Alcaniz

In August the 2CV World Meeting was being held in Alcaniz, Spain. Burton Car Company was present with a big trade stand and 2 truck loads of parts. Sadly the event wasn't very successful due to the heat and there were only 2500 cars. With no shadow and 43 degrees it was not much fun for the visitors. Hopefully the World Meeting in Poland in 2015 will be better and we are also looking forward to 2016 when the ICCCR is being held in the Netherlands. Go to our Facebook page for more picture of the event.

Reconstruction of our shop and new storage facility

After the built of our new overhaul workshop last year it now time to expand our shop and storage facility. Due to a continious growing assortment of parts and demand we are in desperate need of a reconstruction of the shop. The old overhaul shop will be transformed and added to the shop. In the other building we have added 300 square metres of storage to house all the new parts. We hope to have it all ready for the spring next year.


The bronze horse of Henk Göbel fully restored, protected and reinstalled

The statue of the horse made by the recently passed away dad of Iwan and Dimitri was stolen in 2012. In January this year the statue was found but cut in pieces. The municipality gave Iwan and Dimitri the job to restore the statue. During the restoration the two brothers came to idea of a anti theft system for statues. This idea is developed into a product and launched in to the World as 'TRECCO'. The horse is revealed on the 20th of June by the mayor. For more information go to www.trecco.nl

2CV-24H-race of Spa-Francorchamps

On 19 and 20 October the famous 24h of Spa Franchormaps is being held with only 2CV's on the start line. Over 60 teams have entered in this competition. During a 24 hour race these teams have to compete against each other but also against sleep, failing parts, tyres and time. Burton Car Company is present on the trade area with a stand full of nice parts. So put on a warm jacket and drive to Spa on Saturday the 19th of October and have the race experience of a lifetime.

NEW PRODUCTS



Since our last newsletter over 25 new products have been added to the range. This is a selection of the best ones:

A standard accessorie of a German 2CV but might be handy for your 2CV as well. Now available for only 6,05 euro.

A1.4456 Oil filler revision kit NEW
A broken oil filler often results in a leaking engine. Many different new fillers are for sale but none of them meet original quality.

The set price is 49,95 euro.
