MONTH 6 By Alex Tapley
I’VE JUST completed a 1584-mile trip the South of France and back with my family, storming the péages like a German executive. Come o the immaculate toll roads onto the twisty stu and the 5008’s crashy ride comes to the fore.
In the south you can only admire the French brand loyalty; Peugeots are everywhere. Less so up north, though, where the usual suspects from the rest of Europe are more numerous.
