Black mugs are the answer- Historic FF2000 ones never show the stain....

OK, Jan 1 2015 so no turning back now! It's onwards and upwards to first event in mid March, followed immediately by a truck trip to Vallelunga. Have decided not to risk driving the Alps route that early in year...

Happy New Year everyone, let's all have fun with our old crocks and keep safe.

Pah! I remember when it was a narrow mountain road sometimes with passing places and long before the autoruote was built almost to the entrance of Mt Blanc. I've even been over the top of Mt Cenis in the winter, now that's something well worth doing just for the view from the border post, I just wish I'd had my camera with me.

That was my point Gordon but I think you missed it.
I think Mike's main reason is cost of Mont Blanc tunnel.

New Years Day- surprised anyone is with it today, let alone Gordon!

Yes, MB tunnel is crazy expensive. If going to Monza it or Frejus is logical choice, but for Southern Italy going via Monaco and Genoa is not that much further, and less risk of snow related issues......

Talking of the tunnel, one of my customers at the time was almost trapped in the big fire in 1999 but managed to do a million point turn amongst the deluge and go back.
He was returning from Italy from a business trip in an almost new Volvo estate car that was deemed to be written off when he got back home in it, just about every panel was smashed when he had to get out in a hurry.
He never used the tunnel again and I think it was shut for 3 or 4 years after a lorry loaded with margarine caught alight.
I expect the high toll charge is still paying for the loss of revenue and repairs ?
