(rewinding a bit). Calculating you've got an 888 mile / 14 hour 49 minute road trip ahead of you just for a weekend jolly, and then the same back again Sunday, half-cut, demands some psyching up. But Gary's T5 VW is magic. It flies. Our offices are 179 miles apart so it's good to talk face to face for a change.
1st stop chez Death Spray. Then catching the tail of exotica on the way to Le Mans for the 24hrs. The Lola we met on the Chunnel was actually going to Spa for a free reign. It's always magic when the satnav shows a big chunk of beckoning blue ocean. Our coach-house B&B was just a drunken stone's throw from the chateau which was handy too. Time and miles compressed.VW Luxury doesn't extend to electric windows or a CD player, so I dug out some old C90 cassettes and revisited some yesteryear favourites Señor Coconut and the Kraftwerk covers of Y Su Conjunto – El Baile Alemán. It was destined to be a great weekend. BP
