The #RSmini Paris tour

By Daryl Willcox

2nd December 2016

Last week I travelled to Paris in the #RSMini to tour the city for the day.

My route took me from Sussex to the Channel Tunnel and on to Paris where I toured the city via major landmarks, top media companies and past the offices of some of our PR clients.

I like to think the trip demonstrates our commitment to the French market with our dedicated French Journalist Enquiry Service. It was certainly good fun and getting some of the pictures along the route was definitely entertaining. So was the driving as this video shows.

The litte RSmini, a modified 2002 Mini Cooper S with over 110,000 miles on the clock, did a fantastic job of getting me around the Parisian traffic.

We ran a competition for the best photo of the car posted on Twitter which was won by Anaïs Jaouen from Wellcom, who will be receiving a Fortnum & Mason hamper.

Heres the tour in pictures:
