Day 36 17th July 2016 Paris Finish

Took the Eurostar to Paris first thing and met the car on the outskirts, so nice to meet family and friends in Place Vendome for the finish.

So many people had turned out to see us, Dot certainly won the banner competition.  Those door plate signs were lifted off our website after she asked for a photo showing the competition numbers, crafty and clever Dot.  Nicole’s tinsel lined pillow case flag was a winner too.  Three generations of Sparks came along, youngest William superbly behaved.  Both my sisters and their husbands came along and brought great cheer.

Nicole and Alex were the first friends we saw after such a long journey, Nicole looks the part in the car and seems to have dealt with the first challenge of drink driving: gradual acceleration so you don’t spill your drink.

Chaotic scenes on the finish line, couldn’t have asked for a better partner. We made it in some style.

  2. Just wanted to say it’s been a pleasure following this event and your progress along the way. I’ve been checking daily on race updates for a few of the teams and it’s inspiring. While you’ve been doing this journey I’ve been restoring a 1968 AMX and just got it back on the road. It’s amazing to see what you and the other competitors have done. Thanks for sharing the journey.
