To be honest Joe you were always going to struggle with your tow car. The trailor and track coupe must have been somewhere near 1,700 kilos combined. So it's a big ask.
But yes those hills do need a fair bit of anticipation.

Spa for me is 12 hours uphill.

I hope I can make Le man next year as it looks like much fun was had.



Waiting for forum photo hosting!
Hang on!
It's here! Hooray !

When I lived in SW France I always used the Newhaven - Dieppe route, and used to drive down the Mulsanne straight on the way.

About a 4 hour crossing, I think it only runs in Summer months now.

I think it took about 2-3 hours from Dieppe in those pre-autoroute days. It was an 8 hour 400 mile drive home to just south of Angouleme.

Well given that the max towing weight for the Multipla is only 1300kg, I hope you've added lots of lightness to your track car laugh
