As I type this I have just 11 days left to work before I am officially unemployed. They are being very kind to me and sending me off on a nice little trip for five of them and I'm looking for any suggestions for the route.
Keep in mind that this is a working trip so I can't go that far off the direct route (I am pushing it a little already to be honest!) but this is what I have in mind:
Monday 14th April - Leave warehouse 430am, Eurotunnel crossing at 7am. Drive to Holiday Inn at Magny Cours. Freshen up then go and visit the Circuit de Nevers Magny-Cours.
Tuesday 15th April - Leave Magny Cours and head south to Nice stopping at the Clermont Ferrand Circuit de Charade before continuing, over the Viaduct de Millau (the worlds tallest bridge), to the Gorges du Verdon and, finally, to Nice.
Wednesday 16th April - Working in Nice with possible trip to Monaco depending upon time left.
Thursday 17th April - Leave Nice and drive both the Monaco GP track and Col de Turini rally stage before heading up to the Holiday Inn at Reims.
Friday 18th April - Visit the abandoned circuit at Reims then head home via Paris and the Eurotunnel.
I'm thinking that some of those drives could be a little extreme but there'll be two of us (the other guy isnt into racing but loves an 'adventure' - especially when someone else is paying for the diesel!) so they should be 'do-able'. I'd love to hear from anyone who has driven any of the route who has any input...
