Classic Marathon day 3

We have left Matera on another bright and hot day heading north and quickly the scenery changed from the arid olive groves to more verdant terrain with large cacti growing wild. Some spectacular hill top villages could be seen amongst the rolling fields of wheat as we climbed uphill on a number of regularities.

Relatively lush scenery.

Getting hilly

GaugePilot is still most accurate and combined with a good stopwatch system very easy to use. Most of our times have been within five seconds adrift from the perfect time. More of GaugePilot on a dedicated blog.

A couple of circuit tests have provided a lot of fun and the car is still running well now having shed its rather alarming creaking noise.

I have observed quite a number of old fiats but no Multiplas as yet as the southern Italian climate is kind to the steel. It is a haven for older cars here and they seem mostly in daily use.

Old truck still working.

The Afternoon was delayed and made a long run into Salerno via a regularity and track test.

However we were treated to a cracking sunset as we arrived along the autostrada before dinner on the rooftop terrace in the Hotel.
