Day 1: Boulogne to Auxerre (Approximately 260 miles)

Starting from the fictional town of Nouvion, better known as Boulogne, where all the teams were able to admire / laugh / take bets on the durability of each other’s vehicles! The first days route took us through the Champagne region, and on through the French countryside to the picturesque town of Auxerre, with its winding streets and squares below belfries and half-timbered houses.

Day 3: Mâcon to Bruges
(Approximately 440 miles)

Starting in a supermarket car park in Mâcon, the route then headed north via the rolling Luxembourg countryside and the aptly named Belgium town of Renaix, before heading to the architectural beauty of Bruges for a well-earned drink and presentation at the finish.

Day 2: Auxerre to Mâcon
(Approximately 210 miles)

Today we set out to the most southerly point on the route and the active centre of the Resistance during World War II, to the paved streets of Mâcon on the river Saone.
