    Business as normal

    It was Lotus Elans all the way on the 16th running of the Tour Auto Lissac, with the Hugenholtz/Hugenholtz pairing winning (again!) followed by two more of Colin Chapman’s brilliant creations. As usual though, the Tour Auto provided a historic motor racing spectacle like no other, with an entry that included Ferraris, Porsches, Aston Martins and Maseratis, all of the type of – or actually were a – car that competed in period.

    The 2007 event started in Paris under the magnificent glass and cast-iron ceiling of the Grand Palais on Monday 23rd April, a hugely innovative development this year, and one that saw 10,000 spectators paying a modest charge to view the very best GT and sports racing cars in the world. At 8.00 o’clock the next day the cars, divided into classes and either entering a ‘Competition’ or ‘Régularité' (or Touring) section, set off on an adventure that was to end at Evian by Lac Léman on Saturday afternoon.

    Tuesday saw the cars negotiate a massive traffic jam exiting Paris, and then drive on to the Bugatti circuit at Le Mans where the first races started (with some delays and cancellations due to the problems with the traffic), before completing a special stage at La Roche Posay and staying overnight at the Futuroscope at Poitiers.

    The next day it was an early start as usual, and in ‘Competition’ the Monteverde/Pearson Jaguar took first place ahead of five Elans, all ready for the next day’s special stages. In ‘Régularité’, the Citroën SM is ahead of the Ferrari Dino 246 GTS driven by Haquette and Vanlanduyt.

    The Tour stopped overnight at Sarlat, and on Thursday morning set off for Albi, by way of two special stages and a race at the Albi circuit. Ludovic Caron’s AC Cobra had been able to hold off eventual winner Hans Hugenholtz in his Elan, but the small car was soon able to take advantage of its better handling and move into the lead. In the other classes in ‘Competition’, Porsche 906s dominate Group G while veteran race and rally drive Jean Ragnotti is on the top of Group H in his Alpine Renault A 1.

    The fourth day, Friday, sees some serious action on the Charade circuit where six-times winner Hugenholtz fends of a challenge from the similarly-mounted duo of Lajournade/Bachard, who had done well in the earlier special stage. The crowd at Charade is treated to a wonderful wet-weather driving display by the veteran French ex-Works drivers Serpaggi and Ragnotti. The Tour overnighted at Vichy, with just two special stages on the Saturday to come.

    These were held on closed roads in Renaison and Marchampt, so Tour Auto Lissac competitors could enjoy a lunch-stop in the Hameau du Vin à Romaneche Thorins, before driving to Evian for a successful finish amidst the applause of enthusiastic local residents, the Lotus Elan of Hans Hugenholtz taking the laurels yet again.

    Jean Sage and Caroline Knuckey won the Index of Performance in an Alfa Romeo 1900 CS, while the British husband and wife team of Linwood/Linwood were supreme in ‘Régularité’ in their superb Franco/Italian masterpiece, the Citroën SM. They shared the podium with a Porsche 356 B and a Ferrari 275 GTB.

    Bonsoir,

    Je ne sais pas du tout si je pose ma question au bon endroit, alors si ce n'est pas le cas, j'en suis désolée.

    Mon conjoint et moi comptons acheter une maison : un appartement neuf sur plan (label BBC). Et j'aurais besoin de vos lumières et de votre concernant les différentes étapes d'acquisition.

    Infos qui vous serons peut être utile pour me répondre : nous ne sommes ni marié, ni pacsé mais nous vivons sous le même toit. Et nous ne sommes pas non plus à la même mon établisement financier . Il est en CDI depuis 3ans, et moi je suis AE.

    Voilà ce que je sais :
    1) Prendre un premier rdv avec mon établissement de crédit . d'avoir une idée de notre budget. -> rdv passé : on a une capacité d'emprunt assez limitée (lui seul peut prétendre à un prêt)

    2) Recherche de logement -> on a trouvé un résidence neuve label BBC qui nous intéresse énormément (mais qui est au dessus de nos moyens whistle: )

    3) Prise de rdv avec l'organisme constructeur -> il aura lieu demain Voilà pour le moment où nous en sommes.

    Supposons que dans résidence neuve se trouve la maison que nous aimerions effectivement avoir.
    Quelles sont les prochaines étapes?

    Démarcher les mon établisement financier pour avoir le meilleur prêt à un meilleur taux? Quand devons nous faire la demande pour accéder au PTZ? Avant ou après avoir trouvé une la banque ?
    Notre apport personnel provient du PEL de mon conjoint, quels avantages cela nous apporte exactement (le PEL)?

    Savez vous si en général les prix indiqués programme]http://terre-a-terres.com/programme-immobilier-neuf-haute-savoie/chatel/the-view/appartement-5-pieces/A17-13551060.html]programme immobilier neuf 74[/url] sont négociables auprès du promoteur?

    J'ai très certainement encore des millions de questions, mais je vais m'arrêter là. Pour le moment cela me semble déjà assez décousu et je n'aimerais pas vous décourager tout de suite lol:

    Merci beaucoup d'avoir pris le temps de me lire et à ceux qui pourront me répondre.
