Every year when we're going south, we pass the old circuit of Reims, in the north of France.
They held the last F1 grand prix on this track in 1969, and I believe Porsche took home their
first trofy -on this track- with their legendary 550 spyder.
www.amis-du-circuit-de-gueux.fr


The past 5 or 6 years the track looks better every year, and now they even have plans to
build a new track behind the old head tribune (in the old days that was a visitors carpark)
http://www.circuitdereims.com/

If you want to see more of the track, click on the link below.

trail fitted some modern (993 16") Porsche alloys.
Up front 7x16 et55 with 185/50 and at the rear 9x16 (!) et70 with a 225/45x16 tyre.
Made my own spacer (42mm) to get them under the rear wings.
No tyre rubbing, no clearance problems, just 3mm clearance with the rear wheelarch
fender lip, and the same on the inside where the 1303 IRS arms are sitting.
Next time I'll try some 7,5 & 9x17 CupI

During our 2750 mile roadtrip/holiday, a friend of ours took this picture on the highway
from Menton to Nice, where we've been to the 16th meeting "Cox d'Azur" in Menton.

Bus performed well, and on some trips I managed a fuel consumption of more then 25 mpg !!
(fully loaded,total weight more than 3500 lbs,and with the 1776cc screaming out loud)

I'm also planning some technical modifications this winter.
