Start time...

2 AM - Monday morning. (1hour sleep if that)



Jimmy setting up the satnav



Fuel stop number 1



3.5hours later, jimmy takes the driving role over. weather was dire.



Decided to take the ferry there. 7:30am leave time. wrong choice..... seas were rougher than a bears ass. me feeling rather ill:



Actually considered turning back at this point, but the bounty was tooo good.

Started driving through France.. smoother roads than here... just.









Arrived at the border of Belguim at 12ish local time





Arrived at destination for a freaky welcome.... (the locals dont say much..... they wernt real)



Car looking rather dirty at the half way point







Token GB sticker... twice the size of normal ones... must be proud to be British



Decided to experience the local cuisine, pizza hut FTW! and went for an adventure to get some belgian chocolates, but the shops wernt open.

After a Coke and a chat with the seller, Kurt. awesome guy! We decided to head home at 4pm.







Nice local graffiti:







Sunset





Me falling asleep in the back on the way through Belgium/France.. sharing the seat with the rims.



Damm French Van drivers:





Arrived back home at 11:45! we did it in 22hours!

Stats:

Average Speed: 56.3mph
Top Speed: a measly 81mph (Fuel economy was good- 75 spent on petrol)
Miles done: 798miles
Time spent driving: 14hours

Morning afterwards:

The GB sticker migrated to the front of the car





Now for the prize: (never even been mounted)

















Tiring but fun.. and the car never missed a beat.

Incredibly rare... Compomotive Turbo 3peice Splits.

Only 1 car i know of in UK wears them,

14 x 8 et22
14x 9 et19

Crazy thing is... i travel 800miles, and years and years back... they were made 5miles from my house.

Why?....

Wheels are porn! I'd hang them up in my living room instead of fitting them!

*edit : Just realised why you thought that!
