Run2Europe2015, Birmingham to Reims



Clean cars, early ish start

This years Run2 was advertised as BIG!!! so we started it a day earlier....Thursday 27th August.
Starting from the Midlands bang on 7.57am.... heading down to Kent and the RAF Battle of Britain Memorial at Capel Le Ferne, here we would meet the rest of the "Run2ers".

Quick stop for fuel at Ashford Sainsbury's 

 350Z, 370Z, 370Z Audi A4

 Sunny weather.....not!

370Z, Jaaaag XFR S, Mitsubishi Evo

Via Whatsapp the bulk of the group met up in Ashford first to top up the tanks and grab a bite to eat before moving onto Capel Le Ferne, weather doesn't look too good so far.

We then form our first of many convoys to our meeting point.

 Capel Le Ferne, Hurricane

 Spitfire

and 2 more 370Z's

At around 1.32pm we head for Dover and to Europe.....

At around 2.40pm we drive onto the ferry where the fun begins....



About 15minutes before we enter Calais the first challenge is handed out in the form of a crossword which has a hidden anagram of our destination for day 2.









Before I even left the bar area on the ferry the destination was text to me....!
Tomorrow it would be Reims to Barcelona.

The journey from Calais apart from being very wet was uneventful, tomorrow would be different......
