hirty thousand kilometers on road and track. Nearly as much on the ocean, after an epic journey to ship the car back from California to Switzerland through Long Beach, then an unexpected detour in Shekou, China.From one vessel to the next, onto Singapore,the Suez Canal before hitting dutch shores in Rotterdam. The experience cost me a few grey hairs and a new battery, drained by such a long stay in a container. After nine months in northern California, my GT3 got the chance to play in its natural habitat: European race tracks.
