The Bottle Farm

Luc's clutch had a wobble on the way to the Bottle Farm but after a test drive was fine.

Once at the San Bernardo pass, we decided to put Vincent’s car in the trailer as the engine temperature was rising too high and the climb ahead may have been to much.

After the pass we unloaded Vincent’s car. Luc then said something was wrong with his car. His points had closed up, and what do the British do when a car breaks down? They decide it’s time to have a cup of tea I had a cup after resetting the points abnd timing.

We made it Coast to Coast.
