We are waved off from the start in Reims and only 177km left to go. Not sure exactly when we arrive in Place Vendome as we know that we have to first head to a holding point where we will be grouped into small batches and releases with a roller skating escort!

The cars left Reims in place order so that the top 3 in both categories can arrive in Paris first. As expected but a bit of a shame that we don’t get to see the celebrations.
