Monte Carlo

Starting from Longbridge, we will follow as closely as possible the route that would have been used in the 1930s on an overland journey from the UK to Monte Carlo for a trip to the Grand Prix. Using a period car covering roughly 200 miles per day travelling at the leisurely speed that would have been appropriate in the day. Using the traditional Route Nationale, avoiding all modern motorways where possible, it will take 6 or 7 days to complete. Obviously stopping for lunch along the way in the time-honoured French tradition. (But without wine for the driver).
