0121 - Day 32 - Bydgoszcz to Szczecin - 03/07/19

Day 32. Bydgoszcz to Szczecin - still in Poland then! No better at my local pronunciation but the locals have been brilliant. Even the copper who pulled me for 87 in a 50 zone shook my hand and told me not to do it again - and good luck with the rally 😀 Today we did the kart track in Byd again - backwards (and 2 seconds slower!) then we had a great test on and around an old airfield and then a lovely run into Szc through tree-lined avenues and pretty villages. Tonight I spent three hours at a wonderful workshop recommended by Jerzy - thank you Jerzy. They have welded up the cracks appearing in the front suspension but couldn’t help with the stuffed rear damper bushes sadly. But we can get to Paris without them! Photos of a local Seven, Shiv’s car on a hoist again, Gidget on a hoist - again!, pretty countryside, various cracks being sorted, a lovely E Type at the workshop, Gidget in the company of a Fezza (won't happen often!) and the current running order. Tomorrow is an early start so goodnight
