Went quite a few years ago on the way back from Clermont Ferrand.

I reckon its 350 miles+ to Calais so reckon on 7-8 hours driving especially as you will have to encounter Le Boulevard Périphérique - what joy, on a Friday as well - what time do you expect to hit Paris?

Just got back from Magny cours mate.

Prey its DRY !!

We spent 3 days chasing set up on the Phase one R1.

All our riders said that it was like Ice in the wet because of a polished surface !

I will post some pics of the weekend tomorrow.

oh its around a 6-7 hour drive at legal speeds !

Have fun

P.s Phase one finnished 3rd in the world endurance championship.

I did a TD there about 5 years ago...smoooooooth as a smooth thing...reminded me of Donington the way it flows.

I rode there on "D" roads - so it took all day from Caen. Riding back was horizontal rain all the way...luvverly!

Highlight was: 2 guys from Jersey on brand new MV's - one binned it in the morning and trashed the RHS....so he took his mate's one out and binned it on the LHS!! Some peeps have more money than sense!!

Have fun,

RX
