I'm going back next week to do some riding / driving in some mountain pass route event with my dad. going to film it and we'll be driving a Porsche 968 so I'll share the fun with you guys in a mini-documentary

Sadly very few - it was all done via paper form with no online stuff at all - though in a few weeks I'll have loads of info and stories in sure. It has to be an open top car and you have to get to the stop of a load of mountain passes, and take a photo of your car at the top - its all I know.

Wow great story and pics there. It's lovely to see the Alps in summer, I do a lot of skiing so never really see it like this.
I bet that will be a memory you keep with you both.
All the best, Dunx

Brilliant pictures Brilliant car, ive always wanted to do a drive accross counties but the gf is never interested. its nice to see a g40 getting used like this rather than sitting in a garage like mine L429TBD, i cant bring myself to bring it out in the cold or the rain so it sits there shinning instead, very reliable car brilliant

Thanks guys; she is a daily and is about to cross 200k miles, she comes out in rain, sun, snow - anything sometimes she is clean but rarely. Someone once said I don't appreciate it cause its rarely clean.
