We’ll the c6 seems very Lombard in some ways but very different in others; similar in …. voiterette class, no starter, a heavy push start, some plug challenges, boy it goes. thanks for the run Hubert (spelling) current president of the Swiss Bugatti club and attendee in NZ as well as S2S. Also thanks to Patrick Freidl for organising it.

    Geoff,We should all be most envious of you being at such an historical event.
    Give my regards to George Wingard who has been a great supporter of the 1908 Isotta Fraschini GP Tip[o FENC voiturette des Dieppe GP , and with whom Anne and I stayed in Eugene 2010.
    Today Geoff Hood and I are taking the Isotta, otherwise now known as ‘the mushroom risotto”, to Robe, South Australia this morning for a week long rally with the veteran car club.
    Cheers
