Classic Marathon day 7

With only 35 seconds in the lead over the MGA we weren’t sure we would hold onto the class win today but some good fortune, the GaugePilot and an error from the other crew we kept the victory and came joint 20th overall.

It’s been a fantastic event with some outstanding scenery and quiet roads with a clever and demanding route. Grip marks to the organisers. Although very hot the car performed perfectly and was reasonably cool inside with all the windows open.

Thanks to Michael for another opportunity to rally with him. It’s always fun and a privilege to come on adventures like this.

  1. Loved your messages and pics, James, and well done to the two of you. Excellent class win. Have a drink on me.

    Could you also compliment the organisers on their website reports and pics too? They were really good and conveyed the atmosphere and environment just as you did.

    In fact it sounds so good that I want to do it, but you might have to do lots of work on the Facellia to get it roadworthy! It would be rather a good way of seeing what could be considered to be ‘my home country’ (which it isn’t…)

    Talk to you when you get back, bon voyage. And well done again.
