    Nice work. Looks almost as bad as the front of my Leon after 1500 miles of dry weather driving in the past two weeks! :D

    Hope you enjoy your trip, I think this is something most of us would like to do at some point in our lives.

    Haulled up in a cheap hotel in Clermont Ferrand. We had a little rain in the last stint which washed the bugs off the screen which were (no joke) almost totally obscuring the view of the road.

    That Ibiza is a real surprise package, even at fairly high speeds all day long we're still expecting a 600 mile tank, which is quite something.

    Just uploading some photo's at the moment on the free wifi :)
