If any mod would like to create a new Honda Euro Tour 2008 section :thumbup:

After listening to comments about last years tour being too long and the 1st draft of 2008 being a bit too long and impractical with Venice etc. I have redone the routes again. The over night stops haven't been finalised and I am open to any constructive criticism or ideas/knowledge you have on the area ie must visit places etc. The driving distances and times are a lot shorter so this gives people the choice of late lie ins or to explore more at your own pace. I have a quote for the Plymouth Santander ferry and someone asked that I get a quote for the Portsmouth Bilbao (PO ferries) we can vote on which is best. We also need to check that the 10th July is a tourist day at the ring before we progress any further.
the Total mileage is only 1947 miles
Day Route Mileage Driving Time Terrain
Wednesday Plymouth to Santander 21 hours Sea

Thursday Santander to Reinosa 217miles 4 hours 18 minutes Mountains

Friday Reinosa to Arette 256miles 5 hours 33 mins Mountains

Sunday Rest day in Andorra feel free to undertake some activities or shop till you drop in this tax free principality

Looks good Dave :thumbup:

Think the shorter distances are a good idea. Errmm not being cheeky but how did you calculate the time they'll take? Do you reckon the times are accurate?

I thought you were going in May or June so didn't think I'd be tempted by this one but July hmmm Image

Although it's my birthday on the 11th ... maybe just have to stay at the Ring and get my friends to come over, or drive up to Amsterdam and get them to fly there for some partying! :lol:

Oh ... decisions, decisions ...

The times are calculated off MS autoroute on standard settings, ie 30mph town and villages 70mph motorways etc, they do vary from tom tom which is more accurate.

If the ring is only open on the Thursday evening I will add another day to the tour so we have all day Friday at the ring. We can spend it on the spanish costa or traveling through the Alps, which would you prefer ?
