    I hope they unlock the gearbox for "racing". They said the 1.0 tranny would last about 4000 miles so just put in a new one and let him tear it up for 33 miles.

    It looks like this is more of a rally/treasure hunt than a race, so the 1 gear set up will be fine.

    Does anyone know the route, I can't see it on any web site so far? I want to plan my time off work and viewing point :smile:

    I can't help but think with London traffic, the Vectrix might win this!

    Yes he does - you're quite correct. I don't know how that changed from my brain to my typing fingers! Now corrected :smile:

    By the way, I was told the car is fitted with DT 1.5. I asked what it was like to drive and the answer was just :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:
