and better still how do you find out what's happening and where ,always seem to miss great rally s and events !, went all across Poland on a jolly and and called in at a classic bike event in Paris at Autodrome de Linas-Montlhéry on the way home, unfortunately we planned six months ahead when we met up with friends who had come over from the UK and got to the circuit all we found was tumble weed blowing about the place, they had moved it forward a week ages before an we missed it completely, oh how we laughed.

must say this was before the days of smart phones and possibly internet as we know it

I find info on French, Spanish and Portuguese rallies is posted on farcebook by the clubs themselves on their FB pages. Also many of the federations publish lists of events which are usually republished by national motorcycle magazines ie: motociclismo in Spain (motociclismo.es) and Portugal (motociclismo.pt) Italy (motociclismo.it)
The current list of Portuguese rallies

MAG / FEMA Euro demo 1996.
Incredible experience, something over 30 thousand bikes I believe. And all to stop the proposed100hp limit.
