Forget planes, trains and automobiles. For supporters of French club Guingamp, all you need to get from A to B are … tractors!
Living up to the club’s nickname - ‘The Farmers’ - hundreds of Guingamp fans traveled to Paris for their Coupe de France final against Rennes in the super-slow-moving vehicles. Obviously, this made for some hilarious scenes on French highways:

The trip from Guingamp to Paris takes about four and half hours by car, so you can only imagine how long and uncomfortable that journey must have been. In fact, according to Metro, some fans feared it might take them so long, they reportedly left for Paris a day early and slept in the tractors overnight!
Thankfully the Farmers won the final 2-0 over Rennes for their second-ever cup triumph. Had they lost, that would have made for one miserable drive back!
