Motoring enthusiasts will be heading for the Geneva Motor Show over the weekend and with the Eurostar train service once again encountering big problems many may consider going in their campervan rather than miss the event.
Once again passengers spent an uncomfortable night stuck in train carriages as the much vaunted railway service let down its passengers apparently due to overhead cables coming down near Paris.
Travelling to Geneva in a campervan will not only be an exciting challenge it will probably save the travellers money. Of course the first thing they have to do is check that their campervan insurance includes overseas cover and the vehicle has all the necessary accessories such as warning triangles, motorhome insurance certificate, passports and bulbs, yes bulbs. But after that a good map or GPS system should suffice to get them there on time, ready to enjoy the first big motor show of 2012.
This year the Geneva Salon International will feature some fantastic motors including the new Lamborghini Aventador, The Koeniegsegg Agerra 2, the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse and the new Ferrari F12 Berlinetta. Also on show will be the new motorhome offerings from Dethleffs and of course the bread and butter manufacturers will be there in force.
Ford will launch the new B-Max which will become available in showrooms later this year and Mercedes Benz will show off their new A-Class motor. Audi will exhibit the new Audi A1 Quattro and BMW the Alpina Bi-Turbo.
The show will be open from the 8th to the 18th of March opening 10am to 8pm Monday to Friday and 9am to 7pm at the weekends. Admission will cost 16 Swiss Francs.
