Classic Marathon. Greece

A long way to the start meant an early rise to get to Heathrow at 06.00. The bonus of this is that its put my body clock on Greek time.

Michael had already collected the car and all we had to do was fit the GaugePilot and calibrate against the organisers measured distance.

It was a long time since I had last eaten so seafood Linguine and a glass of white on the Mediterranean shore were in order! Excellent.

Departing Athens was straightforward to arrive at the official start at Marathon (appropriately). Into the first test within 4km we didn’t excel but seem to have got away with not too much penalty. The morning went well enough in the blistering heat and lunch at a winery was welcome.

Then it rained..poured down! The guys in the open cars stopped complaining about sunburn and went on to waterproofs and wringing out hats.

The afternoons regularities went as well as could be hoped, our penalties went in relationship with the cars hill climbing performance. Oh for another 50hp!

Still at the end and of the day we are 11th Overall and leading the class….early days though!
