Thanks buddy Thumb The Bose idea was great.. until you threw on the anchors..

Seems silly now to think I was worried about making just the Euro Tunnel. I managed the entire trip - stopping to do my exercises in the oddest/most beautiful places on route - 1750 joyful miles - what a car, what a route - and the Friday nights in the gym paid off. Listen to your physio!!

First stop Reims:



Our lodgings in Annecy had an OK view:



We climbed mountains:



Visited friends gardens for birthday lunches:



The girls met:



Lovely when your friends are concerned for you:



Have since removed but was sent some stickers:

Glad your back in her now Freddie.
In June I’m off to Lyon then to Cannes,Monaco. Then off to Geno and Portafino in Italy. My first road trip to Europe since I got my GT3 51/2 years ago.

Nice one Darren - sounds about time you properly stretched her legs - enjoy your trip!

Here's a little video.. apologies for quality - nice noise though

All this talk of European road trips is really exciting. Less than a fortnight now before I take my car for it's first visit (under my ownership anyway) to the Nurburgring. DN19 trackday two weeks today and I'm looking forward to the whole trip.

Nice one on the Gran Turismo gig! What an amazing thing to add to your car’s provenance, your GT3 should probably have its own Instagram and Twitter accounts Grin

Thanks Rory

Can't wait to get back on track either
Might aim for a cheeky Goodwood day towards the end the year if all stays "on track"

what

PS - cant stand Twitter but Instagram is great if you have a passion for something - you only follow what you want (and not a baby photo in sight!)

I like Goodwood, but I was too loud for it when I did a trackday there a few years back. I got black flagged even with my decibel devils, might be time to re-think my bypass pipe! Are you running stock or do you have a bypass fitted as well?

Get black flagged all day long but if you go wide of their microphones it helps

Last time the lady in their sound police office told me to get a different car. I asked her, what was she doing working at Goodwood !??

Few pics to brighten up the website. Its not all engine issues thankfully.

Organised a few friends on my fav roads down in the south of France. We enjoyed a Lambo Jalpa, Jaguar XK120 and a 1967 Corvette Stingray

Car of the weekend went to the Jag by 1 vote; 65 years old and total Spitfire flying bliss - the joy of open top motoring in a nutshell. It was close with the Jalpa though which spat flames all day long and is a really really good car.

Friends lovely 993

GT3 guru's, I've forgotten the best tyre pressures for my 997.1 GT3 - 245 / 305 Michelin Pilot Super Sports. (for fast road driving)

30 / 34 ?

cold or hot ?

Hope everyone is well

Is that with the TPMS or the manual Porsche gauge that comes with the toolkit Grin

I usually get different readings from both!

I've just binge-read this entire thread and now realise I need to be aiming for a 997 GT3 and now a 996. Amazing car Thumb

Cheers chaps for info Thumb

Thanks Jay.. I love it, as you can probably tell... look after it and drive as much as possible!!

Since I last posted we have been to Centre Gravity for a refresh of the Bilstein dampers and Chris's fast road set up - its really refreshed and would thoroughly recommend doing this.

Plans for this year are a trackday at Goodwood on 14th March pm and then a drive to Nice via Route Napoleon with two friends: one in our TVR Chimaera (currently being restored) and a perfect TVR T350 in gunmetal grey.
Could do with another German to make it 2 vs 2!
