Start and part 1: Sevilla-Valladolid

Posted by Antoine Derome on July 21st, 2008

Km 0. This time, we go! On Monday the 21st we started the first step of the Challenge Logan 2008. This makes concrete more a year a preparation which involved a lot of people in Europe, Asia and even more. 

The Challenge’s start has the chance to happen the same year as the 50th anniversary of Renault factory in Sevilla. To celebrate it, the Direction of the factory had invited the Mayor of Sevilla.

We took advantage of this celebration to present our project to the numerous journalists (press, radio, TV) and members of Renault’s personnal present there.

Then, the Mayor the city of Sevilla officially gave the start of Challenge Logan 2008, with the audience applause! We were surprised and very touched by this.

During this first step, we drive from Sevilla to Valladolid, that is to say 580 km to the north. We start with a 40-degree temperature and arrived 800 m higher, with 22°C. We already experience contrasts.

Photos and soon videos after the break to come…

False start

Posted by Antoine Derome on July 17th, 2008

Faux départ

Thursday, July 17th, false start!

We comme back to the starting blocks beacause of some logistics problems and will start on Monday July 21st from Sevilla. Actually this few resting days are welcome. We hence have more time to verify the last details and especially to rest a few days before this big adventure.

So we have set up very scientifically a program for our mental and physical preparation, based on sun, swimming-pool, shopping, jogging, siesta and parties. Strangely, our ideas come clearer in the swimming-pool rather than during an audioconference in our offices. That’s not so true in the evening, maybe are we a little tired…

So note it in your agenda, we remember it to you, we start on Monday, July 21st!
