Le Mas du Clos memory…

“Nothing to me is more than loving friends who share your passion. Friends who come to have fun, to make us happy, share the same passion, without desire, without jealousy. “ Here is the key phrase of an exceptional person “Pierre Bardinon” I had the great fortune to meet! When I asked a friend what car designer celebrity he would meet in his life, he replied without hesitation, “Peter Bardinon” I took it as a challenge … The appointment was made, not easy of course, the son designate and professor of mechanical engineering, he had to find a small click to go the famous barrier secretary! This was done without any problem and then everything was like this fabulous character. I went to prestigious venues Mas du Clos, making a soft purring six cylinder freshly honed … Hosted at English butler, prestige and high class smile and friendship, I was led into a small waiting room, a mechanical room should I say! I do not take long to find me in front of him, already I felt admiration, it must be said that it imposes nicely in the middle of this library masterful telling in a shared passion for a long time, its own history day by day and carefully placed in notebooks giants, at this stage, if you’re not impressed, you just take the door! The presentation, a very strategically selective test posed by the master of the house on my design skills could block me! But it was without counting on my ability to get back on my feet touch bringing my sincere and personal matter … Memories of paternal skills activities with my Art-Concept-Design for 5 years and modest about my personal history own golf car driver and motorcycle. A first exchange was done on different circuits that I attended and he knew by heart on! A second question about my taste in mechanics could ruin everything, without revealing my secret, you just know that those who have chosen to ease the prestigious Prancing Horse will be deceived! My tastes instead (which most intimate experience since my childhood) to my surprise joined his and it is in the utmost secrecy as I entered the cave secret of my new idol! His smile faded and his face wall sincere helped me into a pleasure exponential, I had him simply mention the brand and model he held secret from the public and media! And then there all jostling, the history of early events experienced plunged me not in my past (I’m getting older course but still!) But rather in that of my father who told me all this, among other when I was a kid … All the memories rebounded over his explanations, the fabulous history of the Bugatti 35 LeMans, favorite brands that I will keep secret all these beautiful cars reds aligned with each other, the cult objects of decoration with their stories, showcases prestigious accessories, his friendship with great Enzo Ferrari which I discovered the gifts made over time and so many other details that I may tell soon … Needless to say that also happen at Mas du Clos, is like traveling in a dream, everything is beautiful, red dominates, flowers, trees, mechanics, just the class that has no equal that the quality of the reception! ! The character in front of me is extraordinary, it constantly reminds me a person who has a lot important in my life and always count on, very simple but knowing tell with such ease, I was simply captivated during the hours privileged shared with him. It was an honor to meet him, it’s just unique … We could not separate us without share another passion with him, and indeed those who know me well have guessed, Pierre Bardinon also love the world of two wheels! An invitation is then to have the pleasure of seeing me run with my monster on its own circuit, it is a privilege more than I will certainly never forget! And then there were striking anecdotes on its own acquisitions models exceptions where again the memories I still stand hair on the forearms … I hope to return soon, it nod addressed my Friends also passionate about automobile and motorcycle, both my son in memory of their grandfather, who certainly would have been delighted to accompany me on these magical places, my two brothers their mechanics who had the chance to follow in the footsteps of their father and my friend Bernard who mainly helped me refine the restoration of the beautiful places of the moment … I hope you liked reading this, if you want more details, I will gladly the confidence to give the opportunity for a little rendezvous in self-love, for example, to quickly … David

    Didier Bardinon était un homme exceptionnel, doté d’un sacré caractère mais tellement agréable.
