Benson has been sold to a true gentleman in New Zealand – I have to confess to being very sad when I shook hands on the sale. The car has earned real affection in our hearts after all the prep and the rally, but I had to be realistic – it’s an endurance rally car now and would have got very little use, it’s better that somebody else can go on an adventure in a car that has proved it’s up to the task.
Jock has bought Benson to do Peking to Paris in 2013 – so the poor old car will have to do the trip all over again !
He is sending the car to RPS to have some odds and sods done before shipping to NZ in the autumn
I hope the next time I see the car will be in Paris late in 2013 to cheer Jock and the car over the line
