Winter Trial leg 8

The final leg began in Linz and sent us back to Salzburg almost to where we began 3000kms ago. You almost expect there to be a sting in the tail from the organisers but the two regularities were straight forward and we had a bit of fun on an ice circuit.

Our final result was 18th overall and 5th in class. About where I expected to be prior to the start.

As ever a hugely enjoyable adventure in challenging conditions and big thanks must go to Herman, my driver, all Bart’s team at Classic Events for putting on the event. Mark Appleton for designing the route, GaugePilot for the best navigational instrument on the market and Volvo for having the foresight in building a car over 50 years ago that’s still brilliant!
