Third day took us dutchy's from Austria to Italy. Fine roads and passes again with highlight the Timmelsjoch pass. The weather is still smiling. Ended in a new Hotel to meet up with the international part of the meeting. International part split up in a 4 or 2 day trip so for now not all cars arrived yet.

I cancelled my LoT to Zolder and Zandvoort for the same reason. I swapped it for sloshing rain in Anglesey which was...Great fun.

Day 6.

Wonderful celebration of 25 year Elise. From Hotel we drove up Stelvio from the Bormio side (which was closed last year due to rockfall). After a short stop at the top we headed down into Switzerland, then quickly back to Italy to have a fantastic lunch and a mini Concours de elegance. A few more Lotus showed up so I guess around 70-80 cars there. After lunch back to Stelvio this time up along the famous east side. Quick stop and down to Bormio for the after party.

Sunday we had a blast back home. What a fantastic trip. 1900 miles driven (3000km) and she did it without any issues. Very nice experience and week. Very fine organisation to join.
