It's only just over an hour from where we're staying in Aosta to the Sparco showroom so I think we'll bypass the hotel (as it'll be too early to check in anyway) and go straight there in time for un caffè and meet up with folk before lunch around 1230 smile

I've not bothered with the Italian toll-ticket, I've got a co-driver to do all that for me smile but I have my (electronic) Swiss vignette.

I am taking my 96 Coupe through France. Are you serious about the Stop & Scrap bit?

Michael, have a read of this, from the RAC

If you stay away from the zones indicated it appears you'll be ok - you too Alan...

Hi Slicer - yup only kidding about the SnS wink

But like me you'll be unable to get a French emissions permit as your coupe is too old. It's easy to avoid the fixed city locations but it's the emergency regional emissions zones which may cause an issue. Some of these were on our route and we decided we didn't want to take the risk so decided to dodge France cry
Accordingly to the RAC these zones are fluid and can change quite quickly so couldn't be bothered trying to decipher regional updates every time we set off.

Its very confusing. A 97 car is ok but not a 96. They are both built to the same spec. Its just stupid!

I am also planning a 1 day trip into Paris to see the Tower and the Roundabout, both in the 8th district. I contacted the Mayor's office looking for a dispensation and got a reply back saying I would be grand if I did not drive around Paris between 8am to 8pm.

So feck it, that what I am going to wave at the Gendarmerie.

Park at a station outside Paris and take the train in?

I've been using the "Liber-t tag" in France for some years. Always very good in that you don't have to stop. As for huge queues, we've only seen them near Grenoble and right down in the south of France near the coast, and yes having the tag resulted in hardly any delay, compared to the mile plus for those waiting for booths. We have though, twice, had people in the TAG lane without a tag rolleyes

We plan to collect the Swiss pass when we stop over near Pontarlier - Doubs area for a few days before Turin.

Our Crit-air arrived in just over a week, so at three weeks I would consider responding to the e-mail they send you on application.

Hello Bob

What level is your Crit air ?

I don't think that I would be able to get one allowing access into the greater montpellier area.
