M3 in France Collection

A sample of some pics from a couple of recent trips including over Memorial Day - visiting the Chateau Thierry memorial to the US troops and a nearby German WW1 cemetery, and the Aisne-Marne Memorial (you can see the police escort leading us out to the next ceremony). Also some pics taken at the Autodrome Monthlery-Linas, near Paris, where the pre-WW2 banking is still standing and was used this weekend for some vintage racing. I had the chance to drive the banking last year and its bumpy but quite an experience. The French version of TUV (called UTAC) does its vehicle testing there and its usually a closed track except for special occassions. I have some video clips of the lapping by some of the vintage racers, including a fantastically restored Mustang, GT40 and Charger - and a biplane circling over them.

Lastly, some pics of the Chateau de Fere, near Reims, which I highly recommend for a visit if you are driving to/from Paris.
