    Well been awhile since it went to Carrs and came back!!

    Annual service, some odd indicator wiring sorted, a new radiator and a rebuilt ac compressor later; she is all good. Iíve not driven it much since itís been back, putting the miles on the 348 instead.

    Now that itís winter and the roads around us are mud, delights of the country side in the winter, time for some tlc on the cleaning front!

    After a **** week at work, rather therapeutic

    So a bit of an update.

    This spring I ended up topping the coolant up by circa 4ltrs. Nothing was obvious but i took it to DL for sn inspection and they found nothing! Very odd and the only thing I c as n thin of is the garage, not DL, who changed the rhd radiator didnt bleed the system correctly! Annoying.

    This was all done in prep for my road trip to Monaco F1 Historique; so i wanted to check everything was good.

    I took my dad down to Monaco Historique F1 for his 80th; now 83 thanks to covid cancelling it!

    We did Portsmouth to Caen, stop by Riems where we got moved on by the cops; but having just watched a 911 and 430 almost get taken out by a truck, i expect they are a bit fed up with the tourists!!

    We had an apartment in Monaco with a garage; although the garage took all my skill and most of the front skid plates to get into. The rest of the skid plates were abused by the huge number of speed bumps!

    The racing was good; there was no messing about. We had a variety of stands booked; and saw Lecler loose his annual bonus and probably make Enzo and Niki turn in their graves. Ive got pics of him coming out of Rascasse backwards but they are on the camera.

    After Monaco; snd i was glad to leave; too much noise and concrete; not to mention crap mobile coverage; it was a long day via the Millau bridge, ending up just south of Tours. 8 hours driving in total; but the 355 was very comfortable and was happy running along at 90 ish all day!

    So by the time I get home; overnight ferry tonight; we will have done almost 2,000 miles, stopped for gas more times than I want to remember, got flashed 1-2 times (ish). it takes awhile to get your eye in for their cameras!

    Car has run faultlessly, took .4l of coolant on the first night but has been constant since. Oil pressure has fluctuated on occasion; but the last day it was 29, so v hot!

    All the hotels were good; food excellent as you'd expect/ hope! Monaco is as i remember from work trips; done to get the tshirt the best avoided! But those roads in the AlpsÖheaven!!!

    Tomtom was an absolute god send. we only made three wrong turns the whole way! yup

    The car is now filthy; but it might stay that way for a Ferrari event this Sunday

    Have thoroughly enjoyed my first European road trip in the ferrari. Next one is July with the missus to the Loire Valley for a week! And already planning 1-2 trips next year! There was definitely a reason I ended up with a lhd 355!!
