Ok, first sorry about the delay in getting back to everyone. :blush:

Due to the nature of my job I often have commitments abroad and never quite know when these may be. I am already committed to being away most of May and part of June and now have several commitments in July. I have really enjoyed planning and attending the French weekends over the past few years, but unfortunately this year I will not be attending. :sad:

I need to devote my time to my work and the majority of my spare time to my family and getting the house straight. I do intend to use my own personal free time to support the monthly meetings and the National events.

I do hope you all have a very enjoyable weekend and take lots of photographs to make me feel envious.

Good luck and safe driving. :th:
Michael

Ps. Do not forget it becomes law in France shortly that you must carry a breathalyser

I'd love to but as with most people i can't see how I can afford it this year, I do think that using the ferry like Mike W and Martin did last year is the way forward though for those of you lucky enough to be in a position to do the trip.

FYI, the ferry from portsmouth to le harve departed at around 8-10pm (ish) and docked the following day at 8am. A return trip cost us £100 for the car and two passengers :th:
The return wasnt an overnight ferry, it left at 5pm (ish) and dicked around 10pm :th:
2 Highland Drives, 1 Full JAE, 1 Part JAE, 1 France Trip, 1 North Wales Run, 2 Dyno days, 3 Karting Events (Current Champion), 1 Scotland Meet, countless Yorkshire Meets and even more Northwest Meets later... Im MR2-less, for now!
