Wednesday 0800 Eurotunnel - autoroutes to Rouen then old roads. Camp pitched in time for evening practice and quali.

Usually there is a wiki thread with who is on what crossing etc -

Is it me or is there a lack of excitement on this section this year? Its not that long to go. The StickeredUp thread usually has a lot more interest too!
