Having wanted to do a trip like this in the VX for the last 4 years I finally got around to doing it last week :) The schedule was:

Day 1: Brugge for lunch, Nurburgring for the evening TF session for a very tourist pace lap ;) . Stayed at Burgstube. Cheers Martin :thumb:

Day 6: Drive to Dijon

Day 7: Drive home

Overall, an awesome trip! If I were to do it again, I would stay over in Strasbourg for the second night, and not bother stopping over in Switz at all. Just drive the Swiss passes on the way to the Italian Lakes and spend 3/4 days in the lakes :veryhappy:
