What a great idea! A Cobra track day! I'd love to go along to that, even though I am but a Cobra wannabe at the moment. I have been Cobra-obsessed since the age of 15. I shall own a Cobra replica some day - and I do mean replica. As in a facsimile.

Have fun on track!

Sorry, I made a big mistake looking on paper maps but I do not where.
As pointed out by CobraBoy and according to Google Earth, the distance is 561km = 347miles and the time is usually 6hrs21 min.
But a Cobra should make an average of 80mph when the driver has an american licence and driving in France (just a little fine to pay and no US licence loss

Pete, lets go! But seriously, I'm would like to go, but it will depend on the flights from Chicago to Paris.
Right for the date: April 15th; I have been typing faster than my RT

Hope there'll be some flight you can grab ! Sounds like we'll have some fun, and I heard that the retired french professionnal driver who will be there, is one of the greatest.

I'll try to stuff the Kirkham in the overhead bins

I really hope the flights work out as I'm really looking forward to 1) meeting everybody, 2) go to France again, 3) hang out at a track day, and 3) ride in the new "Peugeot" (and 4 to meet and stay with you Bob, of course!)


Cobraboy, what's wrong with an average of 80 mph? Last summer I average 90mph on my motorcycle over a 300 miles distance (from Chicago suburbs to Road America track and back). I do, and don't, recommend it
