Article about NSR2017


Dags att sammanfatta senaste November Sun Run-rallyt i en artikel till en av Miniklubbarna. Tur att jag tog anteckningar under tiden, svårt att komma ihåg detaljer så här några månader efteråt.

Time to summarize the last November Sun Run Rally in an article for one of the Mini Clubs. Lucky that I made notes along the way, hard to remember details now months later.

NSR2017: Day 12, Monday 30/10, rally is over

Team Sweden is back home in Uppsala, Sweden.
Rally is over.
Is the Rally blues I hear or is it just tinnitus?

Can’t wait for the next rally with the November Sun Run crew.

Thanks to all followers of this trip, all other participators and of course James McDonald aka November Sun Run and the marshal crew.

Rally report
NSR2017: Day 11, Sunday 29/10. Rally blues…

We had a night of good sleep at Hotel Linden, in a budget room, and we felt a bit fresher when we had breakfast. Pack the cars, pay the bill and then out on the Autobahn at 09:30.
440 km to Kiel.
We drove until 11:30 before the first queues came up, because of roadwork and the bigger junctions and so on.
Then about 150 from Kiel we stopped for a quick pause and the Leopold was leaking brake fluid! Thomas managed to do a quick fix in a hail storm and we were off again.
Arrived in Kiel in good time so we went for some food and drinks at the regular place Kieler Bräuhaus.
Boarded ferry at 16:30 and the some talk in the cabin before taxfree and music quiz. We didn’t win but we stayed for a short while to listen to music. But we were in bed before 23:00.

NSR2017: Day 10, Saturday 28/10. Rally blues

Lazy morning after the big battle is over.
We managed breakfast and met all the leaving teams then we went back to bed as we had lastcheckout at noon.
Finally were in such a shape that we managed to pack our stuff and start up the cars.
Before we left we helped Mike and Karen Spindle to start their Austin Healey 3000, some issues with the fuel feed.
Out on highway and up to Karlsruhe and food on road restaurant. There was a surprise waiting for us, some friends from Stuttgart showed up. Nice to meet them again!
Then out on the road again and when it became dark we booked a hotel just south of Kassel, Hotel Linde in Knüllwald. Nice owner och we had a schnitzel meal on a nearby restaurant before bed.
Both cars running well, both very noisy.
