Road Trip In The GTR!

Just decided to drive the GTR down to peurto banus, Spain.

I rented a villa and the wife and kids are there now, i couldnt go as i was busy with work but ive managed to move things around, they don't know I'm on my way, should make a nice suprise for them, I'm at the euro tunnel now, only 1400 miles to go

Give you till Toll roads around Bordeux when you start thinking of flights

I did 2,500 miles in mine across Europe recently and loved it but that was all sort of Alps, tunnels and scenery.

Drive safe and enjoy the trip though!

Don't try to drive into the port, the gtr is way too wide for the barriers.

Plus, unless you own a boat or a shop they won't let you in anyway.

I love long distance driving Just keep an eye on the fuel gauge as it empties quicker than you think

Enjoy mate!

What a great surprise for the family
Will be an enjoyable drive down for the surprise but will be a kick in the nuts when you wave them goodbye as they get on the plane and you've got to drive all the way back!

How many hours driving are you expecting it to take Jamie? Last year when we went to the Hungarian GP somebody with a UK reg had driven their GTR to Budapest, they were parked up outside our hotel.
