CCC Conservatoire Visit

Well what a great weekend, the GT did 920 miles in 3 days and never missed a beat, averaging 32mpg which bearing in mind it was all at 70-80mph is very good.

Pictures to follow!

Theyve come out quite a bit better than mine lol!

I feel rather jaded today, it was a long day or was it the rollercoaster that was the ferry on the way home! I drove a total of 8 hours in a 25 year old BX yesterday and never once felt tired or uncomfortable or worried about a strange noise, rattle etc and with the lovely french roads and that suspension it was like a magic carpet.

Vive La BX!

As you can see there plenty to look at, so anyone considering going then dont hesitate, i enjoyed the driving as much as the visit itself.
