    No, the race was cancelled last summer due to on-going covid restrictions and uncertain policies.

    The car is currently sitting in Europe. Cole is planning a test+tune/joyride session.ย  B7411C35-EA5F-49D9-BB32-F5790C39D988AFF102DD-1F6C-4323-BF33-CE6258A3B96F39F76695-7051-4DA0-AB1D-41F5108BBB433C258679-4E6E-49D7-BCDC-7482952AD599

    Not cancelled…. “postponed” haha Sounds like a lot of European countries are reducing covid restrictions. I am headed to Europe next month for a couple week Honeymoon and then a couple weeks in Belgium to see this beauty. It hasn’t run in 6 months. So I will give it some TLC and drive it around Europe a bit to dust the cobwebs off. Hoping nothing was stolen in transit….

     

    The car has been in England for the last little while. Sounds like it is being loaded up to head to my friend Edwin Jesper’s shop in Belgium. Metal Master Seppe is the name of the shop.

     

    With the restrictions lifting in Europe I am cautiously optimistic about the Sahara Challange race this fall in Spain and Morocco. But with the Russian and Ukrainian situation heating up I am worried about Peking to Paris next year… Since a lot of the route is in or near Russia… I hope they can all cool down and not have another war…

    Does postponed mean that you donโ€™t get a refund on the race entry fee?๐Ÿ™ˆ

    Hahaha no refundsโ€ฆ but they do say we can roll the fees weโ€™ve already paid into future racesโ€ฆ so thatโ€™s good I guess

    thank you Sarah. I will reach out. I wonder where in Belgium. Luckily Edwin has a good sized shop. But itโ€™s always nice to have more options.

    I received great new this morning! The 912 made it to Belgium. Edwin said it fired right up. No damage to the car. He is going to get me interior pics to make sure nothing was stolen. I will have to do a good inventory either way when I am there next month. So excited it is finally out of port and with a friend.
