  • Thanks Joe. The Vauxhall belongs to Max and Julie, who I met when I was filming the rally in Bhutan. They are a fantastic couple who really embrace different cultures, Julie always looked the part, wearing beautiful sari's in India and the traditional kira when we were in Bhutan. When the rest of us crossed the finish line in Guwahati they continued on through Myanmar and Thailand where they shipped their car from Bangkok home to Australia. This was November last year, since then they have competed on the Peking - Paris where Penny the Vauxhall won the vintageant class! You can read all about it on Julie's blog: juliestephenson.net/journeywoman/india-and-bhutan-in-penny-2015/ I'm hoping to see them on the road again soon as next year I'll be filming vintage rallies in Japan, Paris to Prague and also through Italy including Corsica, Sardinia and Elba. www.rallyround.co.uk for details and you can see videos of the past events on my youtube channel www.youtube.com/easterbyf
