This Saturday my girl and I went downtown to go check out the harley davidson reunion, while taking some pictures of over 1200 choppers that were parked all over the hotel santa cecilia, I noticed a Land Rover Discovery Tubro Diesel (#18 Stuart Onyett & Barbara Maynard-Taylor 1998 Land Rover Discovery 4x4 support) with British Plates cruz by, you dont see to many of those down here. I quickly followed the rig who led us to a roundabout where a classic alfa romeo (#11 Geoff & Jennie Dorey 1967 Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint GT Veloce) was broke down. I offered my service and guided them back to their hotel where 19 rally vehicles were parked. :beer:

I then met Paul March (#19 Paul & Dr.Nikki Marsh 1997 Land Rover Discovery - service crew.) who kindly asked me if I could help him fix the clutch problem with the 1967 Alfa Romeo and an electrical problem with the 1961 Chevrolet Corvette (#8 Chris & Jill Wray 1961 Chevrolet Corvette). Paul was exhuasted since he had not slept much due to long repairs on the rest of the other cars.

Paul and his wife , Dr. Nikki James provide medical and mechanical support to all the teams. You can read more about him at www.footloose4x4.com :beer:
