Imagine it is 1900 and you are in Poland visiting the relatives of your wife. Whilst there you come across these gears made of wood and begin to imagine making them out of steel. Well this is what happened to Andre Citroën, causing him to buy the patent from the Polish owners. So began the story of the legendary double chevrons.
CITY OF TORUN
Torun, one of the two capitals of Kuyavian Pomeranian region is a perfect spot for the 17th ICCCR in 2020. It is at the same time a thriving motosport centre in Poland, ready to host the next meeting.
The participants will be hosted in a picturesque meeting area, located in the Moto Park, sport's airfield and Motoarena - one of the world's most modern speedway stadiums, only 3 kilometers away from Torun's city centre.
Torun with its population of about 200.000 inhabitants is known as one of the most popular tourists' destinations in Poland. It is a birth place of the famous astronomer Nicolaus Copernicus, and its gothic Old Town has been inscribed on the UNESCO World Heritage List since 1997.
It takes about an hour to reach Biskupin - an archeological site and recnostruction of an Iron Age settelment, and Golub Dobrzyn - the castle where for the first time in Europe the tradition of the medieval knights tournaments was restored.
We warmly welcome all the Citroën enthusiasts to Torun and land of Kuyavian Pomeranian.
