I'm looking at driving down to Monza for the GP in early Sept.
Are any of you lot going/driving down? If so what are your suggestions on route/plan, etc.
I have looked at the following agenda, but am open to any ideas (and would welcome extra stops on the journey, as well as non-motorway roads... such as the mountain passes).
Day 1 (Thursday): Early Chunnel to Calais, then break the back of journey on the first day, by getting to Geneva for c.8pm (in time for dinner)
Day 2 (Friday): Swiss breakfast, followed by a leisurely drive (around the big lake) down over the hills and into Monza for late afternoon (for an espresso)
Day 3 (Saturday): Qualifying, Porsche Supercup, then hit the town for pizza!
Day 4 (Sunday): The 58th Gran Premio D'Italia at the Autodromo di Monza (Monza formula 1 circuit info, 2012 formula one gp racing timetable
Day 5 (Monday): Depart Italy (with some more espresso) and head for Champagne country. Arrive c.7pm for glass of bubbles, followed by dinner in Épernay.
Day 6 (Tuesday): Spend the morning stocking up on Champers, visit one of the caves, have some lunch, and then head back to the Chunnel for c.7pm. Home by 9pm.
