Just returned from the JOC visit to Morges Switzerland after a fabulous weekend at the invite of the Swiss Club. I covered approx 2040 miles over varying road types and speeds returning at worst 10.83 mpg and best 16.72 mpg. This was my first road trip after local shake down outings and apart from the new Summit thermostat housing leak(Fixed in France) and reconditioned steering rack issue "Toby" behaved faultlessly and was a credit to Finches who did the work

Thurs 4th Oct 2018 - Clinic Passion 32 Rue de la Fontaine Légère, 55800 Laimont, France. They sorted my Thermostat housing leak whilst on the French back road route to Mulhouse. I didn't expect to find a garage, let alone a classic specialist, in the middle of nowhere they were brilliant.

Thanks Dave, I'm sure that Paul will have the same approach with his SP when you've finished working your magic

Glad you got back safe and sound, and the car behaved its self on the way back, a stunning example of the marque. Good to meet you and enjoyed your company in Switzerland, hope to see you again in the not too distant future. Kev
