On Tuesday 23rd August Nick Driscoll's Deutsch Coupé had no wings and No differential. Nicks step daughter Kailly had flown in from Sidney Australia to drive the car to Korbach so Nick had a lot of work on his hands as we were to catch the 8am ferry on the 25th!

All was ready by 6.00 am on the 25th.

Nick drove the first leg with Kailly and Rufus in the Coupé while Fiona drove the Combi with John Wallis. We missed the 8 am ferry but caught the 10am boat.

After her rest Fiona was ready for a hearty Breakfast.

We arrived in Zeddam early evening missing the buffet in the chinese Fiona wanted but ate a very enjoyable meal there anyway.

We set off in the morning joined by Norman Williams, Ronald Duggen and Laurie Leddra in Norman's Saloon and George Sinclair and Danny Peak in George's Combi

We Stopped for fuel on our way before meeting up with Gavin Watson and his wife Liz in the Touric Hotel Korbach, our home for the next 3 days.

After an informal dinner and a few to many drinks the show started Saturday morning.

Gavin's car slowly drew a crowd.
