Through the Mountains in a Berkeley -- More Reports from the Liège-Brescia-Liège Rally

Another update from the Liège-Brescia-Liège Rally

Saturday Munich.

We are out of the Alps with relatively flat driving to do. Yesterday we all enjoyed a sunny climb through tunnels hairpins and steady first and second gear slogs up the Pennes pass to 2200 m. At the top we lined up 5 Berkeleys with drivers for a team photo. Ray's B 105 was fitted with a new outer driveshaft sent from the UK by DHL and with the help of a fork lift truck shop was all running within 36 hours. Last night we were entertained by BMW in their fantastic new museum today we visit two German car museums one specialising in micros. The rally has approx 56 micros in it and all but 6 are still running after approx 16000 miles.
