We will all meet in a large car park on the outskirts of Reims at 9am where all the teams can admire / laugh / take bets on the durability of each others vehicles! The first days route is a really long one (approx. 410 miles) and will take us through northern France and onto a picturesque lakeside Swiss town aptly named Spiez.
Starting the day by the Verdaska Dam, scene of the death defying bungee jump at the beginning of Goldeneye (now the highest jump in the world) Anyone who wants to be “shaken and steered” on this event is welcome to have a go, before getting back in the car to head through the Italian Lakes towards Venice, scene of Casino Royale and the powered gondola chase from Moonraker. For those who make it this far, where better to enjoy a Martini at the awards presentation and party?!
Today we head into the Alps, stopping off at Blofeld’s mountain-top lair from on “Her Majesty’s Secret Service”, now a famous revolving restaurant, before driving over the stunning Furka pass, where Goldfinger was chased in the the iconic DB5, onto the scenic shores of Lake Maggiore in Italy.
