Itinerary

It will also include the chance to drive the famed F1 circuit at Spa-Francorchamps and the infamous Nordschleife at the Nurburgring – described by Paul as “one of the most challenging stretches of tarmac in the world”. Both circuits are set in spectacular scenery and are a must-visit because of their links to the world’s greatest racing drivers.

Staying in a high standard of accommodation throughout, you will travel on routes carefully selected for their scenery throughout as you drive on to Stuttgart in Germany. Here we stop at the Porsche factory and its fascinating museum, where we gain unrivalled access in the company of Derek, who took four of his five Le Mans 24 Hours victories as a works Porsche driver. This promises to be a superb journey in the company of fellow enthusiasts.
