Who say’s we can’t race….
We have a 1973 Triumph Spitfire. Never heard of one? Neither had I. This one is not original, and has been messed with. A lot. It’s had a couple of proving runs this year – but not for the duration of the journey.. It’s owner has breakdown cover.. I hope.
The opponent… Well it’s a 2008 TDv8 Range Rover…. Towing a caravan. To date it’s always made the journey under it’s own steam. It did however have a little indiscretion on the way back from a summer holiday… In Le Mans…. Turned out to be a minor pipe, but not without a lot of inconvenience… It also has breakdown cover…
This pair we think is evenly matched. The plan is to travel in convoy, until a break is made…. Give us a hoot is you see us!
