Well the show for us is over, and we're back in our respective hotel rooms relaxing now.

Just processing a load of photo's, of which I'll upload a few choice ones today, but will keep some stuff back for the final diary I'll put online in a few days time.

It's truly roasting already down here, almost into the 30's - so had to revert to shorts & t-shirt today & look like tourists!

Off out tonight, but with a serious drive in the morning to get us as far north as possible before we flake out.

We're (read I am) keen to get to Arromanches where the Mulberry harbour is from the D-Day landings before we sail from Caen on Saturday lunchtime.

The guys are making their way back to Blighty now and have just tweeted an update.

Planning to do 750 miles today to Caen. Looking like the Ibiza might do it all in one tank! 65+mpg. Now in France

Another update, sounds like there on a mission.

"Just realised that so far today it's like driving from Portsmouth to Glasgow. And now we have the same again to do!"

Made it to Caen. Straight through from Barcelona.

Stopped to splosh some diesel in the tank to get Scott home somewhere the other side of Bordeaux, and a few meal stops, but 1300km in a day in a small hatchback & I actually feel really fine.

Off to the D-Day landing beaches in the morning before our midday ferry to Portsmouth.

The final leg. Today went really quickly and like Mark, I feel fine, and could do it all again tomorrow if I had to. Car has really impressed. It's a shame there are flies everywhere messing it up. As a work horse with a good range and grunt it's been ideal. Really really impressed.

Looking forward to the final section tomorrow (not so much the ferry) and to see the family again of course.

Scott

They will certainly do so when the Leon turns up in a week or so.

Got back at 6pm. Pretty knackered now, but had a great time.

Will do a proper write up with Mark soon, but for now some family time. More pictures to upload later.

No we didn't get a chance to speak to the boss, but we did meet some high up people and it was good to see the show from SEAT's perspective.

Much thanks to SEAT for making this possible, and to Mark for being a good road trip companion, especially with the French when I didn't have a clue.

Scott

The FR just got better.... The tank was showing over a 700 mile range midway through yesterday (the did almost 300 miles before the first bar disappeared) I've got a snap on my phone I'll get off later - but we weren't hanging about and it still delivered the economy

Glad you had a nice comfortable trip and a great time at the show. Some great pics there. Looking forward to the report.

But in advance of that, is there any hint that the IBE is going to go into production in some form?

I have my suspicions over what the IBE is... like the SEAT geek we are we've been thinking about it since Thursday, so I'll bounce them past Syphon later.
