Day 32 Ljubljana to San Martino Di Castrozza (Italy) + Day 33 San Martino Di Castrozza to St Moritz (Switzerland)
The two past days have been exhausting, driving through the spectacular scenery of the Italian Dolomites with very steep climbs and descents (the reason for not posting a comment yesterday). Our car is very light and has a lot of ground clearance, all of this causes understate, thus making fast descents quite difficult. As a result we have lost one place in the ranking but we are very pleased with our overall results.
Today is July 14th and Jean, our French friend from Vancouver, proudly wears his tricolour scarf.
One can feel the huge enthusiasm for Motorsport of the Italian public welcoming the rally through towns and villages..
Late in the day today we crossed the border to Switzerland and arrived in the elegant town of St Moritz.
Tomorrow will be the last day with competition before we cruise through France.
Carrozzeria Ghia in Turin designed the Karmann Ghia for Volkswagen who wanted to build a sports car in the 1950's. Our car therefor has an Italian touch and is very well known in Italy. Many enthusiasts recognised the car on our way through Italy.
