It made it to Le Mans 2 years ago (note I did not say Le Mans and back!) but in that 5k miles it has been recovered from Yorkshire (twice) and Folkstone. It made it back on the road June last year after its latest wallet raping surgery and was put away for the winter in September since when it has sat untouched.
