6003 VC Back home!

Our Vitesse finally turned up on Saturday courtesy of the AA three weeks to the day after Dave Walker and myself had to abandon it in Italy. Considering we broke a halfshaft in one of the most inaccessable places in Europe, the St Barnardo Pass, at its highest point, on one of its sharpest hairpins, our car has survived remarkably unscathed! Thanks AA, I thouroughly recommend your European breakdown cover! We had been participating in Club Triumphs marvelous 10 Countries event, and despite our little 'off', both Dave and myself had a fantastic time, and can't wait for the next Club Triumph driving event. We completed the 10CR in a Seat Toledo courtesy again of the AA, our fellow 10CR'ers thought that it was splendid that we had gone to all the time and trouble to secure a Triumph badged back up vehicle, but it was pure co-incidence!
Once again I would like to thank Club Triumph and the organsisers of the 10CR for a wonderful event, pencil me in for the next one.


  1. As 10CR organiser Dave, thanks very much for your comments.

    Glad the car's back OK - when I called you had it back on the road within 3 days!

    See you on the next 10CR then

  2. Thanks raider, I actually had it back on the road a couple of hours after the AA dropped it off (I went home in it that night).
    As for me doing the next 10CR, pencil me in for it, I am a fully signed up adict of all of the CC endurance events!
