The Kingdom of Ladakh

July 2, 2014 at 2:09 pm

Saturday 12th July. Two cars left Kargil very early – we know as our room overlooked the car park. The rest of us left just after 7. We followed a river for some way, in a lush valley. Then we climbed and the road seemed reasonable. There were sheep, goats and shepherds at the roadside More The Kingdom of Ladakh →

Bulgaria June 2012

February 15, 2014 at 8:50 pm

Bulgarian Rally The 2nd Interbalkanic Classic Rally sounded too good to miss – so we signed up for it. It was to be based at Varna on the Bulgarian Black Sea and jointly organised by the Greeks and Bulgarians. Our route out was influenced by insurance, the Green Card only covered EU countries which ruled More Bulgaria June 2012 →

Porsche Club Isle of Man Tour 2011

September 4, 2011 at 9:11 pm

Porsche Club Manx Tour May 2011 An early start meant we were in good time for the fast craft to the Isle of Man in spite of going under the Mersey Tunnel by mistake, due to moment of navigational inexactitude by Allison. One Porsche grounded a bit going on to the ferry, which unsurprisingly was More Porsche Club Isle of Man Tour 2011 →

Himalayan Elan

December 29, 2010 at 6:23 pm

Our 2007 trip was to the roof of the world or as near as we could manage. Our trip was to India, Nepal and Bhutan, the car may not have actually seen Everest – but we did from a chartered sightseeing jet from Kathmandu airport! The trip was planned well in advance and the cars More Himalayan Elan →

Midsummer Classic Car Run 20th June, 2010 The start at Hingham had 92 cars with 7 Lotus Elans, the most we have ever seen on the Run.

Tiger Rally 2008

April 19, 2010 at 6:40 pm

Asian Elan Before the car had even come back from Calcutta after its Himalayan adventures we had booked onto the 2008 Tiger Rally from Kuala Lumpur to Hanoi; there was however just a little bit of work to do and only six months to do it. The known things were a respray, brake overhaul and More Tiger Rally 2008 →

Why are we doing this? A report on the 2002 World Cup Rally London – Dubrovnik – Albania – Athens We have never been rallying before but the 2001 London – Sahara – London rally sounded interesting and we thought we would try it out. First step was a weekend practice (in a Mercedes 300TD!) More Albania 2002 →

Iceland 2008

January 29, 2010 at 9:05 pm

Our Asian trip in March was very gentle on the car so there was just the clutch and the rear shock absorbers to replace before our trip to Iceland.  After Immingham we next saw the car in a container in Reykjavik.  Our first stop was scrutineering in an MOT station but I still cannot tell More Iceland 2008 →
