Day 34 St Moritz to Lausanne
On this last competion day of the rally, we drove over several alpine passes with snow, ice and fog on the road. Rather unexpected in mid July.
The last test was on rough gravel which suits our car well and we thouroughly enjoyed it.
On our way to Lausanne we passed by Martigny which brought back the souvenir of a family trip, where 45 years ago my sister Nicola and I filled our wellington boots with water to try to fill the leaking radiator of the Citroên DS 21. We then stayed a couple of days in Martigny waiting for the radiator to be repared.
Tomorrow we will drive from Lausanne to Reims and on Sunday on from Reims to Place Vendôme in Paris.
If some of you living in Paris would like to see some amazing cars that have just driven from Peking to Paris, the first cars should arrive around 1pm. It is difficult to estimate at what time we will get there as we will be sent towards Place Vendome in batches of ten cars; our guestimate is 2pm ish.
