Minis to …..


21st to 28th September 2024

The club is planning a trip to the Alps in 2024. The daily mileages will be slightly shorter although this is a driving holiday and we do want to cover the pretty and twisty roads on route. We will be meeting and spending our first night in Reims and there will be a option not to take the ferry via Dover Calais and just meet us at the hotel. Please see the below route outline. The plan is to finish in Aix-les-Bains to reduce the journey home post the event as previous Alps events.


Day 1 Reims to Belfort Approx  220 miles. (mainly A Roads)


Day 2 Belfort to Aix-les-Bains Approx 195 miles


Day 3 Aix-les-Bains to Valence Approx 195 miles


Day 4 Valence to Valence Approx 165 miles (fairly low average mph during the day)


Day 5 Valence to Gap Approx 180 miles


Day 6 Gap to Aix-les-Bains Approx 185 miles

 The entry fee per car will be £2395.  This includes the ferry crossing for two people sharing a room, staying seven nights in quality hotels, including dinner, with wine  every night and breakfast.

The entry is being restricted to 40 cars and we are now taking expressions of interest.   Email the Secretary of the Event, Justin Ridyard
