Make sure you take both parts of your license, V5C (don't leave in car), a high vis, a breathalyser, headlight correctors and a set of bulbs. Enjoy!:cool:

If your off to Loheac they are starting to do arrive and drive in your own car round the track :)

You will also need a warning triangle and a fire extinguisher (just a small one)

Love trips like this... Sort of thing we do quite often :) have a great time!

Btw fire extinguisher is not compulsory in France (but won't hurt having one) and breathalysers will be compulsory from July.

The civic has a triangle ready? I'm not sure the extinguisher is compulsory for small vehicles.

P&O do an offer from time to time of a day trip for £19 including 6 bottles of wine (drinkable.. Just) and 2 for 1 breaky... Which is a bargain IMHO and a great opportunity to stock up on wines an beers... Have nice meal and drive in the French country side :top:

We were considering going for a week on Friday (half term), but the forecast stinks next week for pretty much all France...

Well we had great day out, the drivers seat was a comfortable place to be, little bit of wind noise coming from the door mirror area and notice that Honda has issued a bulletin on this, so think will need to get sorted before my next French in July...

Anyway, just a couple of pics from the car museum, sorry about the quality, taken on phone, may post some better ones at some stage...

I get this from my car. Only noticed it after I fitted my Team Hekko deflectors though...

Do you have a link to this bulletin by any chance?

P.s. Looks like you had a great trip. Nice photo's :)

That museum looks really good think I might have to go there myself
Yes, been there a few times over the years and everyone who goes is impressed. It's in what I call a "one horse town" but talk about petrol heads!

Just talk a look at loheac france - Google Maps and see how many tracks are there!

Lucky sod - living on the Channel Islands means you can have the best of both Worlds - means you can easily access Froggie food and wine, without actually having to suffer the arrogant \ condescending buggers full-time ! ...

(This of course does not include French CIVINFO members :p) ...
