Hi Guys, any chance of an update on your fabulous road trip. How's it going? Ireland in the south and west is a grand place. Been over a few times in my Corvette. Always made welcome. Hope you get to meet up with fellow Vetteheads Driving

Hi all,

Martin's C3 broke down on Sunday on its way from Tom Falconer to the hotel in Wales. So only the 2 other corvettes arrived at Nant Ddu where we met for dinner and a nice evening.

Monday morning the electric problem was fixed and they hurried up to catch up the others .

Taking the night ferry to Ireland they had reunion yesterday morning. Since then everything seems to be on track again.

That's in a nutshell a summary what went on. Martin was very busy at that time but I think he will post here in the near future.

Hi guys

I apologize for the delay in posting the promised pictures and video. But here goes:

As Hans-Georg (HGW) mentioned, we had our share of brakedowns on this trip, but somehow we managed to finish the tour with all three Corvettes, eventhough one was grounded for almost a week.

Let's start with the video. We didn't film every day, having put more focus on taking pictures, but we couldn't resist. There are some truly stunning places. Just looking at Lauraugh Bridge was jawdropping. We almost felt like being in a parallel world.

Pour yourselfs a Jameson, kick back and take a ride with us for 15 minutes:

I'll post the pictures in a moment.

Martin
