If anybody could kindly bring some known good front spheres ( ideally 16V type) along with them, I would like to do an experiment on my car one evening.
thanks,
Mike

Can I just wish you all a brilliant trip, and I'm really disappointed not to make it this time :( Actually, scrub that, hope you have a rubbish time without me! :P

I'm sure it'll be very enjoyable if it's anything like previous years; have fun and good luck!

Afraid so. I've taken a bit of a gamble job-wise; I think it's for the best but at the moment I'm not sure what will happen come November. Less holiday too, which I have to admit was one of the benefits of the last one! So I'd have to choose between a 'family' holiday and this trip, whereas previously I was able to squeeze both in.

My old company is closing in October, so looks like I got out at the right moment anyway!

Got back, all safely, and all in all satisfied... It certainly lived up to its Challenge name.

Are there any other Challengeurs out there who can post up something. Piccies maybe. So that I can enjoy it vicariously.

I'll see what I can do shortly but bear with me as it wasn't a good time to be away from work and I've a lot of catching up to do... And gardening and BX repairs! Otherwise life is a bit of an anti-climax at the moment not being able to drive around France.

Mine and Laura's thanks to Phil for organising a superb and memorable trip - thanks!

And finally a link to my photos in Dropbox, assuming this works: https://www.dropbox.com/l/ZG5OIyfUbN7zZDFMjV50jq

I'm afraid that there are rather more architectural and railway photographs than those of cars which reflect my work and hobby interests.
