    Driving to Leeds from Imperia on the south coast of Northern Italy tomorrow up to Lake Como, in to Switzerland over the San Bernardino pass on to the nurburgring. A bit out of season I know but its somewhere to stop off and see, break the journey up and you never Know there could be some locals shooting around if the weathers dry.

    620 miles here I come
