Our visit to the Centro Storico Fiat will be a private guided tour and so we've been asked by Fiat to provide them with a list of attendees. If anyone who is not registered for 3ma14 wishes to join the tour, please let Jacquie131 know by PM or email to Jacquie@131mirafiori.com by Thursday 22nd May. If you don't let us know that you are coming you won't be allowed in by security.

@ all "131 Elite" 3MA14 attendants  Wink : when are you going to arrive at Heitersheim? We (the Ineptitude's crew) are planning to visit the Cit? de'l Automobile in Mulhouse (yes, the big Bugatti collection) on our way to Heitersheim on Tuesday - distance to Heitersheim is just around 15 mls. So, if you are early enough (Museum closes at 6 pm, I think the collection will take 2-3 hrs to see), we'd be delighted to meet you in Mulhouse! http://citedelautomobile.com/en/home

Been there, done that - hence the fact we're staying in Heitersheim and not Mulhouse.

I was actually totally underwhelmed by the Schlumpf Collection myself when I saw it in 1991 - seen one Bugatti you've seen them all, but if we're all going then I'll go with the flow.

I don't think we can make it anyway. Our ferry lands in Dunkirk at 11:00 am and we then have over 400 miles (650 Km) to get to Heitersheim. With a couple of fuel/comfort stops we'd be lucky to make it to Heitersheim by 7:00pm so no time to visit the museum  Undecided

Shame about the Bugattis.....as I've not seen them. Thanks for the suggestion though Robert.

Well I'm on my way. Car was packed last night, well last week really but there are always last minute thoughts like what if the weather is colder/wetter/snowier, etc than I thought? What if this or that happens to the car.....or failures to electronic devices, emergency food and drink, etc etc. I do like to be prepared but like Simon says, if you pack it you want need it. Packing the compulsory car wash bucket takes up a surprising amount of space in the boot!  Smiley

The alarm went off at 4.30 and I'm now sitting on board the ferry in the Stena Plus lounge (a free upgrade following my observation that the on board wifi is rubbish) constantly yawning and hopefully will get some zzzzzzs.

I should get to Simon's around tea time to tick off one of the things on my bucket list namely a drive in what has regularly been described as the best car in the world! Can't wait and am expecting my jaw to drop!!  Smiley

Then spending a night with the in laws before a leisurely spin to Dover for the kick off for the 8th 3MA!! Who'd have thought that we'd maintain this level of insanity so long!  Grin

Sad but true: 3MA14 is now officially over for team Knauber.
We dropped off the Supers in the garage at 23:00 yesterday and arrived home after midnight.
A hell lot of fantastic impressions will need to be sorted in both our brains and on our computers.
A big THANK YOU for everybody making this event one (if not THE) personal highlight of the year -  especially Jacquie for organising the hotels and the visit to centro storico.
My special thanks go to Kevin for giving me his spare brake fluid, Alberto and Michele for the tip where to get a new metal brake line in Turin on a Saturday morning, once again Kevin for the lift to the car parts shop and back to the hotel, Robert for providing a new rear brake cylinder and all the others for their moral support.
We wish all the others still on the road a safe and "free-of-traffic-jams" journey home.
Regards,
Ernst, Jan & Ren

Glad to hear you got home in one day. Smiley

Team UK should be home tonight despite an Auto Route closure.

Team Ireland is having one more leisurely night in France near Le Mans before heading for Cherbourg tomorrow.

Had a great 3MA. Despite the much lower levels of organisation and attendance. Highlights were the Lingotto roof top and Fiat Centro Storico. As well as seeing old friends of course. Heidi has stood up well to another marathon drive which will be approx 4500kms in 10 days. These 131s just get better the more they are used!  Grin

Thanks to the Italian chapter for organising our Saturday...best pizza ever!!  Smiley
