    Despite the obvious issues here and abroad we did manage to complete this road trip this last weekend, just before the inevitable lock down going from Calais to Le Mans then to Reims and back up to Calais.
    Also present was fellow Cutter @Conor wood in his YMB M4.
    The route included some epic driving roads and mostly good weather.
    The trip itself was organised by driving holiday company, Performance Tours, who myself and gf have used several times, and highly recommend for sheer driving thrills, great routes, venues and value for money.
    We did this trip in the M140i, with (hopefully) next trip being Nurburgring in my M4 at end of May.



    First night spent at Le Mans Country Club

    Any speeding tickets ?
    Having stayed in Best Western in Reims, I can thoroughly recommend it - hotel private car park, easy pedestrian access from hotel around the city and Xmas market.

    @sonnyb what's the car sticker thing all about?

    Is it something all the participants do on this type of thing?

    The decals were provided by the tour organiser, Performance Tours.
    I have done several tours with them both here and abroad. They plan and organise the route, stop, hotels etc.:thumbsup:
