A Report on Finnish 100 Year Citroën Celebrations

This has been a year of Citroën 100-year celebrations all over the world. In Finland, the main event was in March, when Citroën invited VIPs to the old student house in Helsinki to celebrate the 100-year old Citroën brand.  Mr. Arnaud Belloni (Senior Vice President Global Marketing Communications) visited and was an honoured guest at the event.  In addition to Mr. Belloni´s inspiring speech, my good friend and I, Mikko Salonen, presented Citroën history in Finland based on our book, Citroën Suomessa (Citroën in Finland).

It took two years to write and we made the whole layout by ourselves. For pictures and more:

Another great event was held in July. Inspired by Fête de la Fédération, classic French cars gathered to Helsinki railway-station square. Our Citroën car club held our summer meeting at the same time in Tuusula and the cars were driven to the square in a parade.

Also this year, the Peking to Paris classic car race visited in Finland the first time:

Our Citroën Celebration year continues with smaller events arranged by Finnish Citroën dealers around the country. 

I wish you all a great rest of the year.
