Tax-rate raised

2CV 24H Spa Francorchamps

From 26 till 28 October 2012 the Circuit of Spa-Francorchamps will be completely taken over by 65 profassional 2CV-raceteams. For the third time this year there will start a Burton, entered by our REP S.M.D.W. and supported by Burton Car Company.
The atmosphere during this event is usually very friendly and spirited. That why you can walk around the (F1) pitboxes and look over the mechanics shoulder when they are changing the engine of one of the racers in the middle of the night. The is a meeting and campsite organized during the raceweekend (it can very COLD in the Ardennes), and there's always a nice turnup of good 2CV's. Plus, the roads around the circuit can providy lots of driving fun. The 2CV-race is definitively a good reason for a nice weekend away...

Hardtop Gasstruts

The Gas-filled springs on the hardtopdoors can cause trouble in winter times. A pressure of about 15 kg is needed, but the springs can slowly loose pressure. Then the doors won't stay upright anymore. Until the 30 of November you can get a refilled pair of struts for only 20 euro's.

A1.1114 Brake and fuelline clamp
The plastic clips that where available for fixing the fuel- and brakelines to the chassis where brittle and did'nt held on the chassis so well. We came up with a product that is easier to attach to the chassis and that hold the lines a lot better. This Burton 2CV Parts product is now available!
