    The EAC is organising a Zed Expeditionary Force to visit the First World War Battlefields of France. The trip will start at the Euro tunnel terminal on the Friday 29 March 2013 (English Side). Cruising from the French side to a hotel near the Somme Battlefield. We plan to visit Ypres and Verdun, and other places of interest as well.

    We plan to stay for four nights returning on Tuesday 2nd April. Those who are interested in joining us, will you please let us know as soon as possible as there are several preparations that need to be made. We will keep this first post of the thread updated with a list of 'le roulon de voiture de sport'

    This is the most ambitious cruise we have organised todate. We do not know this part of France that well, so any experiences of that area would be most welcome.

    Because of its complexity, this trip is jointly organised by EnthuZiaZT and Zedster4 (Mike and Barry)

    Aside from the battlefields, we hope everyone will have the chance to gorge themselves on French Food and Wine and participate fully, in what we hope will be an interesting and fun event.

    Mike & Barry

    Les Cruisers!
    Zedster4 (Barry) Confirmed
    EnthuZiaZT (Mike & Sandy) Confirmed
    Macca (Richard & Mary) Confirmed

    Marise and I could be interested in this. Depends on the final itinerary.

    By the way a good hotel in the centre of Arras is l'Univers. We have taken several car groups here and it has always been well received. There are often early booking deals available.
