So, after blowing day 1 with the intermittently dud fuel pump, the Gilliver/Shellshear 308 GTB recovered to 5th in late classic, and the highest SSC class car, which is showroom standard.

Very happy all round.

If only the bloody fuel pump hadn't.... ah well......

Highly prized category win award on board, plus class win award again, the ONLY crewless classic car apparently that drove to the event, completed the event, didn't so much as jack it up or change tyres or anything other than an oil top up.(1.3litres in 3500+km. And drove home again afterwards...

An amazing car, very very proud.....

I might add too, that the preparations to the car for this  years event cost less than the set of tyres.... In fact, it was done "while he waited"....

Who says Ferrari are expensive to run and unreliable?

The fuel pump failure (a 10 second fix to swap over to back up pump) cost him a podium place of course, but 5th outright classic is plenty pleasing enough :D

Hey, 360c, I know how much you love cleaning the rear lamps... Would you mind?

Looks like he made it up on the bodywork bill post event.

Congratulations to David on the result. I don't think many people would realise just how hard it is to get a result like that.

meh, 'tis but a scratch! It's seen worse for sure.

Yes, and Nigel the Navigator too of course... i saw some pics today, the fog on some stages was pea soup... great job by both.

Obviously, the damage is entirely the navigators fault.  :cool:
