Ollie has pushed the button and pulled the pin. Europe 2015 is a go.
The yellowest van has been sourced,….
…… along with a portable dunny, solar shower (hope the sun shines!), BBQ grill and a cooler box for beer and milk.
You’d reckon that’d pretty much cover things.
How hard can 20 weeks, racing a 55 year old single seat FJ race car in Europe be?

Hopefully not too ambitious, but what the hell.
Keep an eye out for updates and pics of the cars, people and places (that might make you get up and boogy when the time is right).
Time to start packing. 2 suitcases only (and replacement starter motor has pride of place, but I may also need a Tuxedo!)
Cheers and ciao
