BUDAPEST TO BANJUL RALLY 2018
Unfortunately not aloud to visit the city. But enjoying the views and the weather. In the distance the Sagrada Familia
We arrived in Genua around 4 am and slept a few hours somewhere in the mountains beside the car. This morning visited the city for some sightseeing and a few cappuchinos. What a beautiful city and nice weather. Tomorrow hopefully a few hours like this in Barcelona!

Last week was a fantastic week for our charity project. Many thanks for all donations and new sponsors, see our SPONSOR page. With over 900 euro's we are almost at our 1000 euro target!!!!
Our project was published in local newspapers and with about 10 pages in the Citroen CX magazine 'La CX en route', including a photo on the centerfold! Later I will put the article, in Dutch, on the THE CAR page.
The CX, which was first introduced in 1974, was a huge success for a while.
However by the mid-80’s, sales were slipping, so the company employed Grace Jones and her then lover and artist/designer/film director, Jean-Paul Goude, to create a new TV campaign for their then new CX GTI Turbo model, which you can watch below for yourself.
For a 45 second spot, its bold and striking, and, at the time, there hadn’t been another car commercial like it, nor has there been anything like it since then. In fact, the commercial was actually banned in several countries because of what they deemed “excessive speeding”.
Though I suspect, most likely, that the strong, aggressive, literally larger than life image of a black woman, might have been just too much for some people to handle in 1985
Proudly we present our start number 147. They arrived friday. Very big stickers so wet to cut off the lower part.
