Hi Holger

It went off the side of the M1 Motorway near to Nottingham We were supposed to take it in 2 halves prime mover first then the trailer but i thought it easier to go in one hit. Only thing was i hadn't driven abroad before so it was a bit of being thrown in the deep end. :D :D

Thanks
Steve.

Hi Martyn

It went to a Renault dealer near to Lille.Apart from taking the wrong turning and going throgh a small narrow village all went well.Luckily for me when i managed to get through the village i found myself at the dealerships back gate. :o
The furthest i went was to Bordeaux - 13 hours from Bordeaux to Le Havre at 61 tons gross. :dizzy: Bit of a pull for 310 BHP :D

Thanks
Steve :thumbs_up:

Hi Steve nice pics can't say I've ever been that far myself on a tow in, I have been out on recovery jobs of a similar nature though.
